People's Bible Notes for John 12:23


Joh 12:23 The hour is come, that the Son of man should be glorified. The answer of Christ may have been to Philip and Andrew, and the Greeks may have heard and understood it. The substance is that the time of his glorification had come and that glorification would draw all men, Greek, Gentiles as well as Jews, to him.

    JOHN 12:26 If any man serve me, let him follow me ...him will my father honor. My favorite verse in all the bible. It says everything. I get goosebumps everytime I read it. Serve and FOLLOW, follow in the way Jesus lived and carried on his business, and his father will honor you. Powerful !

    The theme of John’s Gospel: Jesus is the Divine Incarnation of God: came down from Heaven share the Truth: God’s Goodness: Love: The Purpose of John’s Gospel: Stated by John: is to show that Jesus of Nazareth was: and is: The Christ: The-Son-of-God: Believers In Him: will have Eternal Life: Jesus: six days before Passover: came to Bethany:Lazarus: Jesus raised from the dead: there Jesus ate supper

    By the Disobedience of 1 man Sin entered the world and this CURSE of Adam was passed on to ALL men, no exceptions. Thus the Obedience of Christ wd have to be passed on to ALL men no exceptions Thats y he is saying IF I BE LIFTED UP I WILL DRAW ALL MEN UNTO ME. IN ADAM WE ALL DIED BUT IN CHRIST WE WILL ALL LIVE NO EXCEPTIONS.Whosoever will let him come and take of the WATERS OF LIFE freely.

    "While ye have light, believe in the light, that ye may be the children of light. These things spake Jesus, and departed, and did hide himself from them." How many mornings will we still wake up in this world? How many days will we still have to receive the Light, repent and be converted? How many days will God bear with this people who only oppose and resist His Spirit and despise Jesus Christ?

    Ephesians 4:29 Let no corrupt communication proceed out of your mouth, but that which is good to the use of edifying, that it may minister grace unto the hearers. Jesus was not ready for the Gentile world, Jesus had to finish the work on the cross. St. JOHN 12:20-24. The Word is so real ..
