John 5 – The Witness of Scripture

To prove his deity and glory as the Son of God, Jesus gives four evidences or witnesses. They are all important: John the Baptist’s witness, his miracles’ witness, his Father’s witness, and the Scripture’s witness. Though the Jews had seen so much, yet they resisted and despised him! Today the Scriptures are still in our hands available to our eyes to read and by which our faith is strengthened. Whoever believes the Scriptures is no fool, as they are the very words of the God that cannot lie. The Jews had the Scriptures and read it often but sadly missed the main point, Christ himself, the coming Son of God. Place your faith on Christ, not primarily for dreams or visions or miracles or other things, but because of the beauty and grace of Christ revealed in the Scriptures. This is our foundation. Whoever puts their hope on God’s word cannot be moved.

John 5:39 – ‘You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me…’
