Discussion for John 5

  • Bathshuwayah Ariel pretty much broke it down. Some People does not accept his real name or truth about things
  • Jesus showed consideration and compassion for the older man. Many people around him were to busy looking out for their own interests, but Jesus took the time to help the man. We can imitate Jesus by showing consideration for others and doing what we can to help them.

    The word of God is always straight
  • Solomon Steeley for verse 2
    JESUS came to do the will of his Father, in to show the perfect way, God 's true intent, for grace and truth came by JESUS CHRIST: So on the Sabbath day JESUS heal, JESUS came to bring forth life, healing, also restoration. The Law would only limit mans understanding, and relationship with God. In this case we see the Fathers heart concerning making people whole, Spirit, soul, and body. The law would limit man, but the grace of God through JESUS CHRIST would open up to you God 's unconditional love which includes healing of the body. The possibilies are unlimited, only by the Spirit of God can we know the truth for he will reveal them to us. God You All
  • Katie Henry for verse 28
    James Njoku- Maybe 1 Peter Chapter 3: 17-22 will help you regarding John 5:28 17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. 18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison those that had died before Christ was sacrificed on the cross was preached to by Christ after he was crucified while he was still yet in the tomb for those 3 days. They heard Christs voice. Hebrews 9:27-27 And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:---- you are making that verse harder than it is suppose to be. It means that after someone dies-you must be judged. Judgement time comes after the perishing of flesh. Although it does not come immediately after death. It comes on judgement day. I hope some of this has helped you Keep studying! Don 't give up. If you don 't understand something, pray for wisdom and knowledge from GOD...for all wisdom and knowledge comes from GOD. He is faithful. You will receive it in HIS time! Always be patient!!!! ALWAYS!

    JESUS always had problems with the scribe and Pharisee JESUS had to teach the people that though he is man his GOD GOD 'S son and he is the word of GOD what our FATHER sent him to do is above the law and when it comes to salvation,deliverance, healing,destroying the bonds of the wicked JESUS didn 't care what day it was. For hr came to do the work of his Father.
