Bible commentary

Discussion for John 11

  • Zeingoff
    Jesus spoke of the Spirit concerning Laz. Therefore he let the death of the body occur. What! But he knew a demonstration of the power of God was necessary. It became a political tipping point as the High priests plotted his sacrifice to save their position in the Roman state
    Jesus certainly knew his fate and also knew he the Father who would stage these events for the sake of all the doubters
  • Irene123
    V. 10 - is yet another prophesy of Acts 2:38 - the receiving of the 'light' (Holy Ghost, after being baptized using the NAME of Jesus); altho' it is common to receive His spirit before water baptism, but water baptism has to be in there.
  • David Teer
    Why do men fear other men? We should fear who can judge our souls not humans. We must fear the grave as we fear the bed.
  • Irene123
    E. Ijioma - I wish you had given the scripture for the plan of salvation.
  • Emeka Ijioma
    I know that whosoever believes in Jesus and follows the pattern he has given, that is, repent of our sins, offer ourselves and be Baptised by immersion in the name of Jesus Christ and remain in the fear of God (process of sanctification), we shall receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and will be saved. This is the process of salvation laid down in the Bible for us to follow.

    This means that only Jesus can save us. He gave His life on calvary to save a sinner like me and for sure once you accepted Him as your Personal Lord Saviour, definitely you will have an eternal life in Heaven. Thank you Lord for this promise.
