050122- “Bearing Testimony For Jesus” John 5:19-47...
John 5:18 “This is why the Jews began trying all the more to kill Him: Not only was He breaking the Sabbath, but He was even calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God.”

Romans 1:18-28 “…people who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth, since what can be known about God is evident among them, because God has shown it to them… As a result, people are without excuse. For though they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God or show gratitude. Instead, their thinking became nonsense, and their senseless minds were darkened. Claiming to be wise, they became fools…”

Sermon In A Sentence: Those who fail to accept Jesus as God’s Messiah do so despite the overwhelming testimony that confirms it.

Jesus Defends Himself Against The Religious Leaders:
-Jesus testifies of Himself; John 5:19-30
-The Father gives testimony; John 5:31-32, 37-38, John 8:14
-John the Baptist gave testimony; John 5:33-35
-Jesus’ works give testimony; John 5:36
-The Scriptures give testimony; John 5:39-40
-Moses gave testimony; John 5:41-47

1 Peter 3:15-16 “Always be ready to give a defense to anyone who asks you for a reason for the hope that is in you. However, do this with gentleness and respect”
