What does the combination "signs and wonders" recall?

Hebrews 2:4 (ESV)

4 while God also bore witness by signs and wonders and various miracles and by gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.

The combination recalls the book of Exodus, serving as the standard expression for God’s display of power in the departure from Egypt (Exodus 7:3; Deuteronomy 4:34; Deuteronomy 6:22; Deuteronomy 7:19; Deuteronomy 29:2; Jeremiah 32:20; Psalm 78:43). God convinced Israel through the signs and wonders that he performed through Moses (Exodus 4:1–17); God convinces of the greater value of salvation through Jesus through signs and wonders.1
