Looking at Jesus we see God

Looking at Jesus we see God

John 7: 26-29 Here he is, speaking publicly, and they are not saying a word to him. Have the authorities really concluded that he is the Messiah? 27 But we know where this man is from; when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he is from.” 28 Then Jesus, still teaching in the temple courts, cried out, “Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from. I am not here on my own authority, but he who sent me is true. You do not know him, 29 but I know him because I am from him and he sent me.”

There was a belief at the time that the Messiah would suddenly appear from nowhere and no one would know where he had come from.

The problem was that they knew the background of Jesus and where he was from, so he couldn’t be the Messiah.

Jesus could have given lots of replies but he perhaps strangely agrees with them, at first. “You know where I am from.” But then continues to let them know they don’t know the person who sent him and where he is really from. They don’t know God.

The reason people cannot accept Jesus is because they don’t really know God. Know the Father know the Son, know the Son know the Father.

The closer we get to Jesus, the more like Him we become and as we follow Him, then we get to know God. Let’s turn our eyes upon Jesus.
