People's Bible Notes for John 1:11


Joh 1:11 He came unto his own , etc. This verse states (1) that he "came", personally, to his own. He took upon himself a fleshly form and came to the race to which he was united by fleshly ties; (2) his own received him not. His own is the Jewish nation, who "received" him not.

Discussion for John 1

    4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD JEHOVAH' our God is one LORD: GOD is not a trinity. The Bible never mentions that word. That men may know that thou, whose name alone is JEHOVAH, art the most high over all the earth. 6 That they may know from the rising of the sun, and from the west, that there is none beside me. I am the LORD, and there is none else. Isaiah 45 6

    Thank you Rene! It seems very terrible to me how with the times so bad, and the end of all things being literally "at hand;" that so many still set themselves to defiantly oppose and contradict, and carry on as if they weren't about to stand before the Judge! "Then truly by there fruits you shall know them." Let us all the more hold fast to Jesus and His Words and wholly follow Him no matter what!
  • Rene Crispin
    I agree so much with your comments faith by works
  • A disciple
    We are saved from our sins by the death burial and resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ; and made clean by the Word which He has spoken to us. There is no salvation in any other; for there is no other name given among men whereby we must be saved. BUT, NOT EVERYONE WHO SAYS TO ME, LORD, LORD, SHALL ENTER INTO THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN; BUT HE THAT DOES THE WILL OF MY FATHER! Faith is known by works!
  • Mild Bill
    A disciple, To enter heaven by your own work is not of grace.Jesus did not simply make a down payment and you installments.You err in soteriology.You work, and so God owes you,or so you believe. Sadly I think of you and the multitudes working their way to heaven,misguided in pride. This format is not for personal discussion,henceforth,I will no longer respond to your messages.
