Thinking Rightly About Jesus - John 5:1-23

April 23, 2022 Pastor: Terry Embke Series: The Life of Jesus Christ

Topic: Study of the Life of Christ Passage: John 5:1–23

042422- “Thinking Rightly About Jesus” John 5:1-23....
Sermon In A Sentence: You experience real relationship with Jesus as you allow Scripture to shape your thoughts about Him.

John 5:1-5 “After this, a Jewish festival took place, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. By the Sheep Gate in Jerusalem there is a pool, called Bethesda in Hebrew, which has five colonnades. Within these lay a large number of the sick—blind, lame, and paralyzed—waiting for the moving of the water, because an angel would go down into the pool from time to time and stir up the water. Then the first one who got in after the water was stirred up recovered from whatever ailment he had. One man was there who had been sick for 38 years.”

Why Are There Biblical Variations? “There are thousands of Greek manuscripts or fragments of Greek manuscripts and the way we arrive at our amazingly reliable Greek and Hebrew and English versions is that these texts are compared with each other in painstaking and complex ways so that when some manuscripts have different wording, we can tell almost all the time which is original. And in the few places where we can’t, there is no significant historical or doctrinal issue at stake”

John 5:6-9 “When Jesus saw him lying there and knew he had already been there a long time, He said to him, ‘Do you want to get well?’ ‘Sir,’ the sick man answered, ‘I don’t have a man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I’m coming, someone goes down ahead of me.’ ‘Get up,’ Jesus told him, ‘pick up your mat and walk!’ Instantly the man got well, picked up his mat, and started to walk.”

When Scripture Shapes Your Thoughts About Jesus:
-You will believe that His knowledge of us is total
John 2:25; John 4:17-18; Matthew 10:30; Psalm 139:13-16; Psalm 139:16; 1 Kings 8:39;
-You will believe that His will to heal is Sovereign
Psalm 89:14;
-You will believe that He has authority over the Sabbath
John 5:9-16;
-You will believe that He is equal with the Father
John 5:17-18; John 14:9;
