Thoughts on the Gospel of John (43)

Then Jesus cried out, as he taught in the temple, saying, You both know me, and you know where I am from; and I have not come of myself, but he who sent me is true, whom you do not know. But I know him, for I am from him, and he sent me. Therefore they sought to take him; but no-one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. And many of the people believed in him, and said, When the Christ comes, will he do more signs than these which this man has done?
John 7:28-31.

Thoughts on the Gospel of John (43)
Some inhabitants of Jerusalem thought they knew where Jesus had come from. But they did not recognise Him as the promised Messiah. The Lord exposed their erroneous, traditional view and reminded them that according to Scripture He would be born of the virgin in Bethlehem (Isaiah 7:14).

Let us note exactly what the Lord said: “He … sent me.” We could not say that: we did not exist before being begotten. But Jesus, the Son of God existed before he became Man.

Was that not sufficient proof that Jesus is the Christ? Certainly! The reason for all hostility towards Christ is that people do not truly know God. Whoever does his own will, seeking fame for himself, remains in ignorance concerning God.

The Lord, however, could say, “I know him, for I am from him.” He not only came from the Father, He is from Him, i.e. He was “with God” and “was God” (John 1:1).

People think differently about Jesus. So it was there. Some believed, others were full of hatred. But no-one dared to take Him captive. Before the time of His death appointed by God came, mankind remained powerless.

(to be continued next Sunday)

Today’s reading: Genesis 30:1-24 · Psalms 17:1-7

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army.

EVERYONE NEEDS A MIRACLE

Some years ago, I was invited to be the guest speaker at a garden party in an exclusive, highbrow residential area. Because I arrived at the venue quite early, I was made to sit for a while in the house of my host. The house was an exquisite parade of wealth and splendour. I had never seen such brazen display of...More

Be Honest with God

God loveth a cheerful giver.
