Know God in a Year #146 Able to See Truth

The Pharisees have again attempted to discredit Jesus to the people by bringing up his questionable birth. saying, “God is our father.”
Jesus doesn’t give their insinuation any attention. “If God were your father you would love me because I came from Him. You act like your father, the devil–a liar and a murderer–and the father of them. If I said I didn’t know God, I would be a liar like you.”

They won’t admit they’re wrong. For three years they’ve been looking to destroy him because he didn’t come in power and glory as they thought Messiah should. They don’t love the truth, won’t even investigate it, but close their minds to it, close their ears to God’s voice. Jesus says this proves they have no connection with God.

“You can’t hear me because you don’t know God. Abraham asked to see my day; he saw it, and was glad.” ( Abraham was the only man God asked to give his son as God was going to. He saw and completely understood God’s suffering in giving up Jesus.)
“What! You aren’t 50 years old, and you’ve seen Abraham?” they sneer.
“Seriously, before Abraham was, I AM.”
Gasps escape many, then shocked silence. This poor, unassuming Galilean rabbi has just announced himself to be the Eternal Presence! He used the name given Moses to identify himself as the Self-existent One!
Now many of the people side with the rabbis, and being led by them, pick up stones to stone Him.
But Jesus, hidden from their sight, passes on.
John 8:36-59
