Discussion for John 10

  • Irene123
    V. 33 - " ... thou being a man ... "; my question is - they saw His works, they heard Him quote from ALL the Law and Prophets, and they agreed He was unlearned. So, who or 'what' were they looking for to be the Messiah? They also said - never man spake like this man. The reason they didn't believe is because they th'ot a NOW deliverer would come to exit the Romans.
  • Irene123
    V. 21 - A lot of people believe Jesus healed then and He heals today, but that does not mean they 'follow' Him. To follow Jesus you follow Acts 2:38, " ... seek ye first ... ", Matt. 6:33. The Kingdom of Heaven is found in Acts 2:38. That's where a Christian life begins.

    "There is joy in the presence of the angels over one sinner that repents, more than over an hundred which need no repentance." An honest look back on my own way before I was truly converted and saved; I have to say that God protected and guided me countless times, despite myself. The danger and trouble and punishments I incurred was my own doings; but it was God who made me thus, to rebuke my sin!
  • Ronald Coe
    I think of John 10:10 as a reminder of not to fall for Satan's tricks, he has stolen me more than one time, but God spoke to me and I've been reading the word of God ever since and I have found Jesus to have lead me through struggles to find Him again. There's one thing we learn from this and that is God will make you go through struggles in your life just to be lead to Him. God bless you through Jesus Christ our Lord.

    ---We are sanctified through the offering of The Body of Jesus Christ once for all.--- After He Offered One Sacrifice for Sins forever, sat down on The Right Hand of God:Hebrews 10:10-12 / Neither is there Salvation in any there:for there is none other Name under Heaven given among men whereby We must be Saved. Acts 4:12 / Only by His Blood We are Saved. He is The only Door. / John 6:44
