People's Bible Notes for John 14:7


Joh 14:7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also. The great truth declared is that the way to study God and know him is to know Christ. From henceforth ye know him, and have seen him. From the cross. On the next morning they would see Christ dying. From the sepulcher would burst forth upon their minds a new revelation of the character and mission of the Son.

Discussion for John 14

  • Estelle
    In John 14 we see the whole Deity, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. or Spirit of Truth.

    Verse 21~By keeping Jesus commandments we will be loved by Jesus and by his Father, Jehovah God.
  • Ghetto John
    The Commandments that Jesus refers to are the ones from Mount Sinai. The many Mansions refers to peace and bliss, and comfort(as compared to homeless tents). That Jesus went to the Father means he will not incarnate to rapture anyone. He speaks spiritually of these matters, not literally! Jesus is the least straight forward of all, so one must have ears to hear, not presumptions! Keep the Ten

  • Ivy Johnson
    Jesus’ second coming and the Rapture of the Church are two different Events! Jesus is gone to Prepare us our Mansions: NOT ROOMS: He is the: Way: TRUTH: LIGHT: LIFE: DOOR:GOOD SHEPHERD: FRIEND THAT STICKETH CLOSER THAN A BROTHER: ADVOCATE: AND MUCH,
    MUCH,MORE: OUR ALL-IN-ALL: HE and the FATHER ARE ONE: HE IN ME AND I IN HIM: IF YE HAS SEEN ME: HE HAS SEEN THE FATHER ALSO: I AND MY FATHER ARE ONE
  • I Am that Michael Isaac Dale
    Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites? (Except ye, being witnessed by many, know of them whom ye confess not.) It is written, Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempts he any man: But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. For the love of money is the root of all evil: Ye cannot serve God and Mammon.
