People's Bible Notes for John 19:9


Joh 19:9,10 Whence art thou? This statement arouses the fear of Pilate. He had never seen such calm dignity and majesty before. Could this prisoner be divine? When Jesus is silent, Pilate reminds him that he has power to crucify or release.

Discussion for John 19

    Jesus first concern was accomplishing God's will. In verse 30 he could finally say "it is finished" when he carried out his Father's will to his death.
  • Steve
    God new before the creation of the world, that his son would occupy that "sacred" set aside, unused tomb.
    It was not coincidental or any such thing. The savior's spirit would return to that tomb to take up his flesh body "RESURRECTED" after his spirit self returned from preaching the gospel to the dead as in John 5:25
  • O'Shen Robinson- Barefield
    Inspiring reminder of the cost of discipleship. The Lord said the servant is not greater than his master, they will do you what they done to me. I like when he said you have no power over me unless it be given to you from above, he that delivered me to you holds the real sin.I need to appreciate faithful women more because out of twelve disciples of men in the end it was three women at his cross.

    we need to give our life to GOD , so that all that JESUS suffer for us in the cross will not be in vain .accept the salvation, so that you will be save , when you do that the lord will bless you in JESUS NAME AMEN.
  • Thd phrase "It is finished " means that Eolhim 's design is completed. Eolhim created the cosmos. The cosmos became flesh. All have sinned except one. The Lamb of God. 16 "For God loved the world in this way He gave His One and Only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will have eternal life. John 3:3-5 ...no one can see the Kingdom of God unless born again of water and the Spirit. James 3:10 tells us that cursing and blessings can not come out of the same mouth, Jesus tells us a house divided can not stand...

    All prophecy was fulfilled how could we doubt that Jesus was the Christ?
