Wesley's Notes for John 5:15


5:15 The man went and told the Jews, that it was Jesus who had made him whole - One might have expected, that when he had published the name of his benefactor, crowds would have thronged about Jesus, to have heard the words of his mouth, and to have received the blessings of the Gospel. Instead of this, they surround him with a hostile intent: they even conspire against his life, and for an imagined transgression in point of ceremony, would have put out this light of Israel. Let us not wonder then, if our good be evil spoken of: if even candour, benevolence, and usefulness, do not disarm the enmity of those who have been taught to prefer sacrifice to mercy; and who, disrelishing the genuine Gospel, naturally seek to slander and persecute the professors, but especially the defenders of it.

Discussion for John 5:15

  • Brokenroad for verse 15
    It seems to me that the man was angry at Jesus for some reason. The previous verse, John 5:14, sounds like a rebuke from Jesus. Surely the man knew from his first encounter with the Jewish leaders that they were not looking for his healer in order to worship him.
