  • Jo jo on John 3
    What does the word wrought mean in Luke 3 verse 21?
  • Chris - in Reply on John 3
    Jo jo, if you are referring to John 3:21, then we see Jesus talking about light, that He had come as the Light of the World (v 19). However, since evil people rather prefer the darkness or else their evil deeds will be revealed by the light, Jesus uses this metaphor to show that those who are righteous (i.e. come to the Light), do so, so that their good lives will be manifest. And this good lifestyle will be seen as not of man but of God. So the word 'wrought' is this Scripture, means that ones good living & works are performed through God & for God, unlike those doing evil, who do it through the promptings & power of Satan.
