John 5 – The Son will Judge All

In this story, Jesus healed an invalid man on the Sabbath day, which was the one day of the week that God had set apart as holy and on which God had commanded the Jews not to work. Why did Jesus do this? Is He a lawbreaker who deserves to be judged? No, Jesus did this loving miracle to set a background for the teaching He would give, in which He claimed deity for Himself – equality with God the Father! Jesus intentionally did this on the Sabbath day in order to show that He is the Lord of the Sabbath day, the Son of God, whom no one judges, but who Himself has received authority from the Father and will judge every single person who has ever lived on the earth. He will judge even you. The authority to condemn to hell or to grant forgiveness and take someone to heaven is in his hands alone.

John 5:22 – “The Father judges no one, but has given all judgment to the Son…”
