Discussion for John 13

  • Verse 34,35
    Jesus set an excellent example in showing self-sacrificing love, putting the needs and interests of others ahead of self. We too should want to display unselfish love, and we are to do it so plainly that our love is evident to everyone who sees us.

    The world you show more love towards one another !!!
  • Regina jeter for verse 27
    JESUS knew what Judas was going to do. Judas had rejected the Way, he rejected the Truth, he rejected the Life. Judas chose to still kill destroy. Just like ? JESUS was talking to satan in Judas, Judas did not submit to JESUS CHRIST as LORD SAVIOUR. To as many as recieve HIM JESUS to them gives HE the power to become Sons of GOD.

    VS. 23-25, The disciple whom JESUS loved,i always pause when i read this verse,whe a child is close to any of his parents, things that others don 't know he will be priviledge to, he will always eat the biggest and best part of the meal, he will always be favored and loved, above all when he is sick or in trouble the parent will go all out to get a solution. do u know why John was called the Beloved it is because he was always leaning on the breast of Jesus, he knew his master 's heart beat if fast or slow, he took in the breathe of D LORD, etc, brethren strive to lean on the master 's breast.

    Today and everyday we should be THANKFUL AND GRATEFUL JUST BECAUSE GOD GIVES US LIGHT FROM THE SUN! HOW COULD PEOPLE NOT BELIEVE IN HIS SON JESUS WHO HAD NO SIN. GOD SAID TO ME THE WILL OF GOD IS THE WORD OF GOD. IN GENESIS 1:1. IN THE BEGINNING GOD-- IN JOHN 1:1. IN THE BEGINNING WAS THE WORD. GOD 'S WORD! :- BE BLESSED BY THE BEST JESUS
