Why Believe in Someone So Many Despised As a Blasphemer (1)

Today’s message from John 10:32-41 is now available online. You can listen to it here.

Here’s how I summarized the theme and our necessary response:

Because Jesus successfully defended Himself from the charge of blaspheming God in His claims, we should believe in and follow Him as the Messiah, the Son of God. We face three lines of evidence in the way Jesus rebuts the Jews’ accusations — His works, God’s law, and John the Baptist’s testimony. How do you respond when brought face-to-face to the many good works from the Father Jesus’ did, especially His resurrection? Do you believe and worship or doubt? Worse than doubt, do you outright reject? John shows us the hard-hearted unbelief of the Jews again in hopes that if necessary, we might see ourselves in them and change our ways and believe in Him. Do it today.

Next week, Lord willing, we will finish the chapter with part two of this message.
