    JOHN 8:31 THEN SAID JESUS TO THOSE JEWS WHICH BELIEVED ON HIM --- IF --- YOU CONTINUE IN MY WORD THEN ARE YOU MY DISCIPLES INDEED ACTS 10:34 THEN PETER OPENED HIS MOUTH AND SAID OF A TRUTH I PERCEIVE THAT GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS 10:35 BUT IN EVERY NATION HE THAT FEARETH HIM AND WORKETH RIGHTEOUSNESS IS ACCEPTED WITH HIM

    This dialogue between Jesus and his Jewish followers distinguishes the departure from Mosaic law and Christian forgiveness. Frankly, all are sinners but we have an advocate in Jesus if we go and sin no more. For the reprobate, there is little hope of eternity. The Jews are devout as our the Muslim. They adhere to the precepts they were taught. Christians observe the resurrection with eggs!

    V. 9 - being pricked in their conscience; I wonder, did any one of them think even further and maybe turn to Jesus ..... ? Or maybe, if they mentioned such a thing, their peers talked them out of it: "but think of the prestige of men you will lose ... " and etc. Just as we are today.

    V. 1 - Mount Olivet was so important in Jesus' day - and in O.T. times. It was a central geographical place in God's Word. 2 Sam. 15:30; 1 Kgs. 11:7-8; 2 Kgs. 23:13-14; Eze. 11:22:23; Neh. 8:15; N.T. - Lk. 22:39; Matt. 24:1-51; Lk. 19:28-44; 21:37; 22:39-46; Acts 1:1-12; in the future - Matt. 24:30-31; Zech. 14:4. Just to understand it's importance, these are well worth reading.

    Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day, and he saw it, and he was glad. I too will rejoice on that great and glorious day, when I will see my Blessed Savior. I long for the day when every knee will bow, proclaiming the truth of the victory at the cross and a new life in Christ was given to me! Yeshua longs to know us and to experience his deep abiding love. Thank you, Abba Father.

    Jn. 8:32- "And ye shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free." There is one thing forever true about the freedom truth brings: the freedom that comes when we know truth - is a 'conditional' freedom. It does not free us from the result of our deeds; the freedom that comes wit truth - is the freedom - to CHOOSE - " ... choose ye this day whom ye will serve ... "; Josh. 24:15.
