People's Bible Notes for John 14:1

Joh 14:1 Jesus Comforts His Disciples SUMMARY OF JOHN 14: Belief as a Solace of Troubled Hearts. The House of Many Mansions. Christ the Way. Christ the Manifestation of the Father. Asking in Christ's Name. How to Find the Father. The Test of Love. The Benediction of Peace. Let not your heart be troubled. Just before him was Gethsemane, the denial, the mock trial, the scouring and the cross; but with these in full view, such are the wonders of his love that he does not think of himself. He does not ask comfort, but he gives it. His heart is full of the sorrow of his disciples over his departure. Believe also in me. They had believed in him, but they were so confused over the prospect of his death and departure, they stumbled. He bids them to believe in him as they believed in God; to trust him even if they did not comprehend; to walk by faith rather than by sight through the darkness of that hour. To understand these words, the confusion, sorrow and despair of his disciples over his death must not be forgotten.

Discussion for John 14

    Did GOD put the Word in Mary's womb to unite with Mary's egg to be conceived as Jesus?
  • Steve - in Reply on John 14:1
    I believe the Holy Spirit moved upon Mary and she conceived Jesus , God in flesh in perfect union . So that makes Jesus the Son of God come in the flesh to save the world . I would not add more to who Jesus is , this explains everything to me .

    No one ever was born like this but Jesus . Mary was Holy or this never would have taken place . Jesus proved He was of God but the way he lived and did things by God as well , Jesus always gave credit to his father . The Lord God of all even himself .
  • Chris - in Reply on John 14:1
    My understanding on this matter is that, according to Matthew 1:20, "for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost", the seed or embryo placed in Mary's womb was entirely of the Lord. That is, the Word of God was sent in seed form to be placed in a human so that the child to be born was fully from God, as God, being born into the world in fleshly form. I don't believe that Mary contributed anything to the Holy Seed but was used by God to be the means for His Son to come into the world, in fulfilment of His Plan & the prophecies made about Him.

    So when Jesus faced Satan at that time of rigorous temptation (Matthew 4:1-11), it was Satan's goal to cause the sin nature to come into Jesus by Jesus succumbing to him, as Jesus wasn't born with such a nature. Unlike Jesus, we are the products of human seed (not Divine seed) fusing & developing, thereby we have no choice other than inheriting the sin nature of our parents. So when we are tempted to sin, Satan already has a prepared fertile ground on which to make his appeal, & so we give in easily. But with Jesus, Satan had to try desperately to cause a sin nature to develop in Him, thereby rendering His coming & being a worthy Sacrifice, a total failure, leaving mankind wallowing in his sin & eventual judgement by God for it.

    Praise be to God that Jesus resisted Satan's thrusts, proving His Divine Power over evil & being the one & only acceptable & worthy Sacrifice for our sins. What we could never do, Christ fully did for us. So the seed from which we came into the World was already clothed with a sin nature, yet when we are born again, our spirits are made new by the Spirit of God so that it cannot sin (1 John 3:9). What then causes us to fall again & again? Well, we're still in that body of flesh (from the original seed) so the battle against sin rages, until the redemption of the body (Romans 8:23) into a complete change into purity & sinlessness.

  • Agho Gregory on John 14:1
    Its absolute assurance, that we are in safe guidance and protection.
  • Shirley Roach on John 14:1
    What stands out in John 14:1, is the part about ye believe in God, believe also in me. In the beginning in the book of John Jesus was trying to reveal who He was. They believed that He was the Christ that was sent from God. But He wanted the people along with the disciples to know that He was God. Verse 1 is overlooked when it comes to that part. It was not until after His resurrection that they knew and believed that not only was He the Christ but, that He was also God.
  • Tina Hall on John 14:1
    I think we all should trust in the Lord more, and not worry so much about what others do or say.
    We have no control over that. Jesus wants us to trust in him, and he will see us thru no matter
    what circumstance we are in. He wants us to
    rejoice in him, and know that he has prepared a
    place for us to go to in Heaven to be with him
    as a beliver when we die, or we are caught up
    in the rapture. We should trust him more.
    We should never give up, even though the enemy, Satan, tries to destroy us everyway he can.
