Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior from which all things have their beginnings. Paul told us that in “sundry times and in divers manners God spoke to the fathers by the prophets, Hath in these last days spoken unto us by HIS Son…..” How is this done? Thru the Bible! IT IS UP TO US TO DIG INTO HIS WORD TO DETERMINE WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON. That is why Paul told Timothy to STUDY for himself as we also must do.

Let us know continue:

16 And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things on the sabbath day.

Here was the beginning of open hostility.

Verses 17-24 Jesus claims equality with the Father.

17 But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.
REFERENCES:
John 9:4 King James Version (KJV)
4 I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.

John 17:4 King James Version (KJV)
4 I have glorified thee on the earth: I have finished the work which thou gavest me to do.

BEGIN RESEARCH HERE 12/2/19 and 12/16/19
18 Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God.

REFERENCES: Read verses 1-2
Luke 6:3-11 King James Version (KJV)
3 And Jesus answering them said, Have ye not read so much as this, what David did, when himself was an hungred, and they which were with him;
4 How he went into the house of God, and did take and eat the shewbread, and gave also to them that were with him; which it is not lawful to eat but for the priests alone?
5 And he said unto them, That the Son of man is Lord also of the sabbath.
6 And it came to pass also on another sabbath, that he entered into the synagogue and taught: and there was a man whose right hand was withered.
7 And the scribes and Pharisees watched him, whether he would heal on the sabbath day; that they might find an accusation against him.
8 But he knew their thoughts, and said to the man which had the withered hand, Rise up, and stand forth in the midst. And he arose and stood forth.
9 Then said Jesus unto them, I will ask you one thing; Is it lawful on the sabbath days to do good, or to do evil? to save life, or to destroy it?
10 And looking round about upon them all, he said unto the man, Stretch forth thy hand. And he did so: and his hand was restored whole as the other.
11 And they were filled with madness; and communed one with another what they might do to Jesus.

19 Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise.

IT IS NOTEWORTHY TO NOTE THAT JOHN RECORDS JESUS AS SAYING, VERILY, VERILY, 33 TIMES. AND VERILY = AMEN.

20 For the Father loveth the Son, and sheweth him all things that himself doeth: and he will shew him greater works than these, that ye may marvel.
REFERENCE:
Matthew 11:27 King James Version (KJV)
27 All things are delivered unto me of my Father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him.

21 For as the Father raiseth up the dead, and quickeneth them; even so the Son quickeneth whom he will.

PAUL IN 1ST CORINTHIANS 15:51 REVEALS TO BELIEVERS THIS MYSTERY.
REFERENCES:
1 Corinthians 15:51-57 King James Version (KJV)
51 Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed,
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.
53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.
54 So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory.
55 O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?
56 The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law.
57 But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

22 For the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son:
REFERENCE:
Revelation 20:12 King James Version (KJV)
12 And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works.

23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
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.

VERSE 24 IS ANOTHER SIGNIFICANT VERSE.
REFERENCE:
John 6:47 King James Version (KJV)
47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

Verses 25 to 29, Jesus speaks of the two resurrections.

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.
AGAIN, 1 CORINTHIANS 15:52
REFERENCE:
1 Corinthians 15:52 King James Version (KJV)
52 In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.

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.

VERSE 30 TO 32 JESUS SPEAKS OF THE WITNESS

30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.

31 If I bear witness of myself, my witness is not true.

32 There is another that beareth witness of me; and I know that the witness which he witnesseth of me is true.

FROM 33-35 IS THE WITNESS OF JOHN THE BAPTIST

33 Ye sent unto John, and he bare witness unto the truth.

34 But I receive not testimony from man: but these things I say, that ye might be saved.

35 He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.

VERSE 36 SPEAKS OF THE WORKS OF JESUS

36 But I have greater witness than that of John: for the works which the Father hath given me to finish, the same works that I do, bear witness of me, that the Father hath sent me.

VERSE 37-38 IS THE WITNESS OF THE FATHER

37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.

38 And ye have not his word abiding in you: for whom he hath sent, him ye believe not.

REFERENCE
Matthew 3:17 King James Version
17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

FROM VERSES 39-47 IS THE WITNESS OF THE SCRIPTURES

39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me.
REFERENCE:
Acts 17:11 King James Version (KJV)
11 These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so.

REFERENCE:
Deuteronomy 17:18-19 King James Version (KJV)
18 And it shall be, when he sitteth upon the throne of his kingdom, that he shall write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests the Levites:
19 And it shall be with him, and he shall read therein all the days of his life: that he may learn to fear the Lord his God, to keep all the words of this law and these statutes, to do them:

40 And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life.

WHAT LIFE? THE LIFE THAT VERSE 39 STATES.

41 I receive not honour from men.

42 But I know you, that ye have not the love of God in you.

43 I am come in my Father’s name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive.

REFERENCE:
John 6:32-33 King James Version (KJV)
32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.

REFERENCE:
2 Thessalonians 2:3 King James Version (KJV)
3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

12 And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed.

44 How can ye believe, which receive honour one of another, and seek not the honour that cometh from God only?

45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust.
REFERENCE:
Psalm 118:9 King James Version (KJV)
9 It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in princes.

REFERENCE:
Exodus 4:14-15 King James Version (KJV)
14 And the anger of the Lord was kindled against Moses, and he said, Is not Aaron the Levite thy brother? I know that he can speak well. And also, behold, he cometh forth to meet thee: and when he seeth thee, he will be glad in his heart.
15 And thou shalt speak unto him, and put words in his mouth: and I will be with thy mouth, and with his mouth, and will teach you what ye shall do.

47 But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?
REFERENCES:
2 Timothy 3:15 King James Version (KJV)
