Discussion for John 5

  • A disciple
    The Divinity of the Son of God is a fact mentioned throughout the Scriptures, from Moses to David and all the Prophets; and confirmed by the Apostles and multitudes of Believers ever since. But then comes a little man with a mouth, thinking he can simply deny it all! In John 5 here are a number of statements from the Lord Himself, declaring His Divine Authority and equality with the Father.

    Andrew: Why are you repeating my Post?
  • Evangelist Andrew Kelly
    Bruce: Jesus had his own will as he did not want to go to the cross, he knew he had to obey God his Father. Jesus felt pain, hungered, slept, ate, drank etc. Jesus knew it was going to be painful and wanted that portion of his life to pass by him. He knew that his mission was to fulfill his Father's will. Luke 22:41-44
  • Bruce
    Andrew: When I First Read Your Post I was Shocked but I Read it a few more times. The word weakling was ??? Strong.The Book of John 5-20 show The Son and The Father as separate:Christ was sent by The Father,
    Christ had His Own Will, but done The Fathers. The Son comes in The Glory of His Father. Matthew 16:27. I hope to See more of Your Post. Pray for Those Who are Puffed-up in their Pride.

    Andrew; Its always amazing to me at what gall some have; so easily to blaspheme the Lord Jesus! While pretending religion, you take an opportunity to give your mouth to the devil and say such a thing about Him who is above all heavens and all the earth and to whom every knee shall bow! I am disgusted by the casual uncleanness and easy kind of "spurious" Christianity that comes out of the churches!
