John 5:30-47 – How Not to Search The Scriptures

In Psalm 119:93, King David said “I will never forget your precepts, for by them you have given me life.” But Jesus rebuked the Jewish leaders in His day for searching the scriptures, thinking that they would find eternal life there. So is God’s word our source of spiritual life or not? As we’ll see as we look closely at John 5, it all depends on how you read it and what you’re looking for.

John 5: 31-47 – Compelling Witnesses and Unbelief

It’s one thing for Jesus to make the claim that He and His Father are one. It’s another thing for Him to be able to cite witnesses who are able to substantiate that claim. We’ll examine the testimony of the witnesses Jesus cites as proof that He is God. And we’ll see why even with credible witnesses giving credible testimony, the Jewish leaders in Jesus day still refused to believe His claim.

John 5:16-29 – The Persecution of Jesus Begins

We are in John 5 looking at how Jesus responded to charges from the Jewish authorities in His day that He was teaching people to violate God’s law. We’ll see why His response made the leaders so angry with Jesus that they wanted to see Him dead.
