Discussion for John 2:11

  • This is a lesson on what this world is like, and how darkness is over us that we don't understand we are slaves, the living dead in need of light. He had power simply because he understood what was going on and doing these manifestations helped them cross over. You know what it's like when you don't get something and can't seem to make out what a person is saying and then the lights go and and it was in front of you all the time, this is what the world is like, being held in a dream like state and when you look at tv and see the players imagine them all in the dark, doing what we always do and then imagine Christ waking them up and they see themselves for the first time... at that moment, never be ashamed for beauty is in the eye of the beholder and he be holdeth you in beauty.
