Thoughts on the Gospel of John (54)

They said to him, Where is your Father? Jesus answered, You know neither me nor my Father. If you had known me, you would have known my Father also. These words Jesus spoke in the treasury as he taught in the temple; and no-one laid hands on him, for his hour had not yet come.
John 8:19.20.

Thoughts on the Gospel of John (54)
Jesus had spoken of His heavenly Father, who had sent Him and given witness of Him (ch. 5:37). Thereupon the Pharisees asked Him where His Father was. Could this be an indirect assertion that Joseph, Mary’s husband was no longer alive? Their question reveals at any rate that they still denied the eternal, divine Sonship of Jesus Christ.

How earnest was the Lord’s reply! The Pharisees’ words and actions showed that they were totally estranged from the Father. Yet they had the prophecies of the Old Testament in their possession. “If you do not believe his (Moses’) writings, how will you believe my words?” (John 5:47).

Whoever reads the Scriptures sincerely comes to Christ. And whoever comes to Christ by faith and gets to know Him, learns to know God the Father equally. This means that the incarnate Son of God is the perfect revelation of God in Person and therefore in the widest sense “the light of the world” (v. 12).

The Pharisees’ resentment is fatal. But despite their intentions they are powerless, until His “hour” has come. The Lord alone determines when man can lay hands on Him. Had they known Him, “they would not have crucified the Lord of glory” (1 Corinthians 2:8). If you know the Son of God personally, then you are one of God’s children. What a blessing!

Whoever touches the body of anyone who has died, and does not purify himself… That person shall be cut off from Israel. He shall be unclean, because the water of purification was not sprinkled on him.

One thing we need to learn in today’s reading is that God always has a substitute. If God says He wants you, rejoice! However, be careful, because even as He is choosing you, He has already prepared a substitute. 1 Samuel 2:27-30 tells us about Eli. God chose Eli and his family to serve Him. God later...More
