Jesus and the Father
When and where do the events in this chapter take place?
There are two "feasts" in the Jewish calendar which are not
found in the law of Moses. What are these and what do they commemorate?
Give Scriptural references.
Jesus is asked a very specific question in verse 24. He gives a very
clear response. In your own words, what does Jesus say.
Explain Jesus' response in verses 34-36.
In verse 37 and 38, Jesus attempts to break through the spiritual darkness
of His accusers by getting them to focus on the work the Father sent
Him to do. What prevents them from making this breakthrough?
Like the Jews in this chapter, miracles do occur all around us. However
we are oftentimes blinded and refuse to give glory to the One who is the
author of them. Do you believe people in western culture would be easily
convinced today if Jesus walked through downtown Toronto performing the
miracles He did in Jerusalem 2000 years ago? What do you think would
be the outcome in the newspapers? What about yourself?
