John 5:1-23 Episode 9 - The Son Does Nothing Without the Father

Glory of God, Exaltation of Christ, The Person of Christ
Jesus went to Jerusalem to observe a Jewish feast and he met a man who had been paralyzed for 38 years. Jesus healed him with a command. Rather than celebrate, the Jewish leaders grilled the man about Sabbath rules. Jesus also confronted the man about his soul and threatened that something worse would happen if he didn’t stop sinning. The man reported Jesus to the leaders. The Jews persecuted Jesus because He was working on the Sabbath. Jesus actually fanned the flame by linking His work to the Father’s. The Jews sought to kill Jesus because He was claiming to be God. Jesus explained His own tasks (miracles, judgment, raising people to eternal life) as proof that He is to be honored in the same way that God is honored.
