Thoughts on the Gospel of John (53)

You judge according to the flesh; I judge no-one. And yet if I do judge, my judgment is true; for I am not alone, but I am with the Father who sent me. It is also written in your law that the testimony of two men is true. I am one who bears witness of myself, and the Father who sent me bears witness of me.
John 8:15-18.

Thoughts on the Gospel of John (53)
The Pharisees revealed their self-assurance: having expressed their judgment on the guilty adulteress, they then passed judgment on the Son of God. How stubborn they were! On the one hand they judged by appearances (cf. John 7:24), then they deliberately ignored the undeniable signs that confirmed Jesus as the promised Messiah. The Lord, by contrast, refused to take up the position of a judge and condemn people. That He will be on a future occasion, but not while on earth, when He was there to bring love and light to the world.

The world is governed by evil. When the day of grace has passed, God will judge it “in righteousness by the man whom he has ordained”, Jesus Christ (Acts 17:31). The proof has been given: Christ was raised from the dead.

Judgment that has been given to the Son of man will correspond to the truth, as God sees things. On this point the Son of God is in full agreement with His heavenly Father.

Even the Mosaic law, to which the Lord’s opponents appealed, demanded that any issue had to be confirmed by a twofold witness. If the testimony of two people had to be accepted as true according to that law, how much more trustworthy was the testimony of God the Father and the Son.

(to be continued next Sunday)

Today’s reading: Job 16:1-22 · Acts 10:17-33

TIME TO WAR

There are times when you have to make war. Sometime ago, I was walking round our Camp ground praying and I saw two snakes. Would you say I should leave the snakes to go on their own? If I leave them to go, they would grow to become bigger and who knows, they could come back and attack me or any of my children....More
