Wesley's Notes for John 6:64


6:64 But there are some of you who believe not - And so receive no life by them, because you take them in a gross literal sense. For Jesus knew from the beginning - Of his ministry: who would betray him - Therefore it is plain, God does foresee future contingencies: But his foreknowledge causes not the fault, Which had no less proved certain unforeknown.


Discussion for John 6

  • Alex
    Christ was the very multiplication of God, an absolute son not a token son. I shall be unto him a father and he shall be unto me a son,I WILL MAKE HIM MY 1ST BORN ETC And it was the FATHER himself that said that everything HAS TO MULTIPLY AFTER ITS KIND THUS THE SON OF GOD WD HAVE TO BE GOD THE SON, IF Christ is not GOD the son then the FATHER lied about multiplication of every living thing/BEING.

    Alex; The things you write are not from God but you continue to use your own imagination for guessing the meaning of the Scriptures. I have tried to get through to you before, but you apparently refuse to take sound advice from your elders. Its not a game, and its not some kind of secret code that men can figure out the combination to unlock! He gives understanding and knowledge to the obedient!
  • Alex
    They are 3 distinct beings just as abraham issac and jacob were 3 distinct beings Father son and granson BUT they became as the stars of heaven, Abraham means exaulted Father he was a type of God the father that wd be multiplied AS THE STARS OF HEAVEN,GOD USED THIS ABRAHAMIC TRINITY TO INITIATE AND ESTABLISH THE NATION OF ISRAEL Which is a metaphor for the multiplication of very God n humanity .

    And he responds my lord and my God .i beg you on this message
    Board Jesus is God virgin born
    Emmanuel God with us.
  • A disciple
    Lea Tanner; You misread the Scripture, nor understand how precious is our redemption! Jesus is God manifest in the flesh; or no one can be saved! "If you be willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land." You have to have a good and honest heart to receive the Word in a way that it will sprout and grow up and bring forth fruit unto God. Questioning and debating will keep you in darkness.
