People's Bible Notes for John 15:27


Joh 15:27 Ye also shall bear witness. The apostles had been "with him from the beginning", and knew all the facts. If he was true, they knew it; if he stilled the waves and raised the dead, they knew it; if he rose from the tomb, they knew it (see Ac 1:21,22). They bore witness to him by word and left their words to us. They bore witness by life, gave up all for him and died for their testimony. Such testimony is the strongest human testimony ever offered to any fact.

    Jn. 15:13 - " ..... that a man lay down 'his' life for his friends." and take up the life of Christ.
  • Irene123
    V.13 - I've always read this verse as literal, and it's always 'bothered' me - because I know only God could and did that. Just now as I read it the spiritual aspect dawned on me: we lay down our WORLDLY lives and turn to God in repentance so we are in a place with God to pray for or friends. Now that makes sense. "Come now, let us REASON together ..... "
