Discussion for John 10:33

  • BEYONCÉ KNOWLES for verse 33
    I would like to understand more about the power that Jesus lost rather than the majority going against him. I know more means favor but if he 's this GOD like he says he is what was they scared of and why and what made him attack them back.
  • William for verse 33
    I think,the reason why The Jews during this era(not all) is they didn't recognize their Messiah. John the baptist is refreshing what should be,some recognized because of miracles that Jesus did during his earthly ministry, but most did not..knowing the scriptures and understanding it will lead us to recognize who He is...
  • Timothy Wayne George for verse 33
    It is interesting that 2000 years since His first Advent, they are still struggling with Jesus being God. They called it blasphemy then, and would do so now. Yet in His second Advent He will come riding on the clouds, and all kindred on earth will see Him, and they will wail for Him whom they pierced. Receive the Son today, and He will be your Savior. May the risen Lord bless you this Holiday Season.
