John 8:13-59 | Conflict | March 10, 2019

Jesus, in the backdrop of the Festival of Tabernacles with it’s themes of light and water, engages the Jews in a debate once again of his authority to teach. But deeper is the declaration that Christ, who is the light, is not subordinate nor equal to them, but he is equal to the Father and his mission will be accomplished. Those who follow Jesus will walk in light, while those who trust in their works or bloodline, remain in darkness.
