We Can Only Truly Understand Jesus By Faith (John 7:14-24)

Terrel Kesterson, July 30, 2017
Part of the series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

Jesus had healed a man by the pool of Bethesda, enabling him to walk (Jn. 5:1ff.). Most of the people who knew about it were astonished. The Jewish religious leaders, however, were furious. It happened on a Sabbath. In the minds of the Jewish religious leaders Jesus had done work on a Sabbath, breaking the Old Testament law. “For this reason,” the Bible informs us, “the Jews” (that is, the Jewish religious leaders) “persecuted Jesus, and sought to kill Him” (Jn. 5:16).

John 7:14-24

14But when it was now the midst of the feast Jesus went up into the temple, and taught. 15The Jews therefore marvelled, saying, How knoweth this man letters, having never learned? 16Jesus therefore answered them and said, My teaching is not mine, but his that sent me. 17If any man willeth to do his will, he shall know of the teaching, whether it is of God, or [whether] I speak from myself. 18He that speaketh from himself seeketh his own glory: but he that seeketh the glory of him that sent him, the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. 19Did not Moses give you the law, and [yet] none of you doeth the law? Why seek ye to kill me? 20The multitude answered, Thou hast a demon: who seeketh to kill thee? 21Jesus answered and said unto them, I did one work, and ye all marvel because thereof. 22Moses hath given you circumcision (not that it is of Moses, but of the fathers); and on the sabbath ye circumcise a man. 23If a man receiveth circumcision on the sabbath, that the law of Moses may not be broken; are ye wroth with me, because I made a man every whit whole on the sabbath? 24Judge not according to appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
