John 7 – Important Questions to Answer
- Where is Jesus? John 7:1-13 (vs.11)
- Jesus never pandered to the demand of popularity or position. He didn’t show up based on others’ demands.
- How does Jesus know so much? John 7:14-18 (vs.15)
- Spiritual knowledge is in direct proportion to a submissive will. Romans 12:1-3
- Who wants to kill Jesus? John 7:19-24 (vs.19)
- Self-righteousness desires to kill Jesus and ignore grace. Don’t be a grace killer.
- Who is Jesus really? John 7:25-31
- An understanding of Passover and Festival of Shelters answers the questions. Jesus is both Provider and Deliverer.
- Will you come to Jesus? John 7:32-39
- The invitation is for the thirsty to come. If you come you receive living water which is the Holy Spirit.
- What keeps people from coming and believing?
- Do you believe his prophetic credentials? John 7:40-52
- The question that arises, as to who Jesus was, is based on the geographical location of where he was from.
- Both locations as to where Jesus was from fulfilled in O.T. prophecy of the Messiah. Matthew 2:5-6, Matthew 2:23, Isaiah 11:1-2
- Jesus was born in Bethlehem (House of Bread) and grew up in Nazareth (Branch town)
