Jesus' confrontation with the Pharisees revealed two stark contrasts regarding Him.

Sermon Notes

 

John 8:12-12

I.  THE DEFAMATIONS OF THE DARK

(Several defamations were hurled at Jesus in an attempt to destroy His ministry)

  1.  He Bore False Witness--John 8:13, Exodus 20:16, Luke 23:2, John 8:44
         Note:  The Defamation, v13, was false--Jesus had many witnesses on His behalf:

         A.  The Prophets--Acts 10:43
         B.  The Angels--Luke 2:11
         C.  The Baptist--John 1:26-27, 29, 34
         D.  The Father--Matthew 3:17. John 5:37
         E.  The People He Changed--John 4:39


 The dark religious leaders sought to defame Jesus by calling Him a liar!
 They accused Him of speaking for Himself, with no witnesses to confirm His claims
 It was the pharisees who bore false witness:  Jesus was confirmed by any witnesses

           

   Will you be His witness today?
   Will you speak out in His Name and share Him with others?
