Speaker: Jon Kopp - Jesus has just performed an incredible miracle of mercy by healing an undeserving lame man, but, in response to that act, John 5:18 says “the Jews were seeking all the more to kill him, because not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.” God was showing Himself to His people, and His people didn’t like what they saw. In fact, they hated what they saw. So, how does Jesus respond to that one-sided love? What does He do for those who reject Him? He loves them. In patient mercy, He offers them witnesses and indictments to show them Who He really is, who they really are, and what they desperately need to receive what only He can offer them in Himself.
