JEWELS From The GOSPEL of JOHN: Uncondemned with Life Sentence - JOHN 5:24-29

The following is a series of short exhortations, brief commentary and writings to convey thoughtful meditation on God's Word. 

I have chosen the Gospel of John as the subject. These articles will not run contiguously on this blog but peppered throughout and in the midst of other articles (though some might be posted consecutively). I pray that these will be a blessing and an edification for the saints.

JOHN 5:24-29 
24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.
25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

Jesus, The Avenger of Blood

Will The Real Jesus Please Appear?
Back in the days of the Jesus Movement which followed the Hippie Movement in the late '60's many in the younger generation were disenfranchised with the Establishment. There was a great desire to set up a counter-culture fresh new approach to Christian life. The following cartoon appeared in 1967 in the Los Angeles Free Press in 1967 questioning the world's stereotypical misconceptions of Jesus.

UNPACKING JOHN 3:16


We all know JOHN 3:16 – we could all probably recite it by heart, but what we are going to do today is exegete this verse word by word. What does “exegete” mean?

“Exegesis is the exposition or explanation of a text based on a careful, objective analysis. The word exegesis literally means “to lead out of.” That means that the interpreter is led to his conclusions by following the text.”

In proper Bible study there are three primary steps: three things that you must do:

1) Find out what the Bible says; observation.
2) As a result, find out what the Bible means; interpretation.
3) Find out how to apply what the Bible means to our lives; application. To watch the Facebook video of this teaching, go here.

The GREATEST OF THESE . . . PART 3 of 3: LOVE

1 CORINTHIANS 13:12-13 
12 For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.
13 And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these is charity.

Let's go over this basic outline that we developed in Part One one last time.
The three pillars of Christian virtue, derived from the Holy Spirit that brings such fruit into and through our lives are faith, hope and love ("charity" in KJV).
