For various and sundry reasons, people have the tendency to focus on the “less important” things. Like complaining about the color of the leather seats in a free car or making more to do about an athlete’s facial hair than his performance, it is possible for anyone to miss the point. That isn’t to say ...

Gospel of John Sunday School | Week 16

Jesus doesn’t say “I am God. I am the same God that you Jews have always worshipped. Just believe!” To a modern-day audience, this would be considered an appropriate claim of divinity. It is clear, but more importantly it is concise. However, how quick are modern-day audiences willing to believe someone who says “just believe” ...

Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name. John 20:30-31 While Jesus’ miracles are ...

After this there was a feast of the Jews; and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. Now there is at Jerusalem by the sheep market a pool, which is called in the Hebrew tongue Bethesda, having five porches. In these lay a great multitude of impotent folk, of blind, halt, withered, waiting for the moving of ...

We shouldn’t be too surprised that Jesus wasn’t honored in His hometown. A similar situation happens if we grow up in the church: the Bible, the ordinances, and the gospel become so familiar that they can lose significance. Those who knew Jesus prior to His formal, earthly ministry inevitably saw Him as “just Jesus” – ...

While the presence of racism and discrimination in the first century, and all times prior or since, is by no means an excuse for its practice today, John’s inclusion of this interaction provides the gospel-centered solution. Faith has been granted irrespective of ethnicity, class, gender, etc. from the very beginning. The Levitical law made provision for ...

One of the most significant parts of this passage is the discussion revolving around baptism. Along with John the Baptist’s specific ministry, John 3 includes one of the few mentions of Jesus’ disciples baptizing people prior to His ascension. Since the baptism believers participate in today is symbolic of Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection, this ...

John 3:16 rightly holds a very prominent role in so many people’s understanding of the Bible, the gospel, and Jesus Himself. It communicates a message of love and hope. It defines the point where God rescues and redeems. It summarizes the contrast between the natural fate of sinful man and the blessed future of those ...

What a blessing to live in a time and place where we have the full canon of scripture in our possession. Used to this status quo, it is difficult to fathom how the church of other places and times carried on with only parts and pieces of God’s revelation – if they even had any ...

The temple is the focal point of John 2:13-25, but it isn’t as simple as that. We can’t fall into the error of making the temple the ultimate expression of God. Throughout history, the temple has always been a picture: a picture of the presence of God among His people. It is the kind of ...
