“Before Abraham was born –
They were not Abraham’s real children.
Therefore, they were not God’s children either.
They accused Jesus of the very things that were in fact true about them.
In their minds, no Jew would tell another Jew that he was not a child of Abraham.
Jesus said that their father was the devil.
He spoke the words which God His Father gave Him to say.
By calling Jesus a Samaritan and demon-possessed, they robbed Him of His rightful glory and honor.
Each and every believer has passed out of death into life.
Now, as usual, the Jews are earth-bound in their thinking.
If anyone keeps His word, he will never experience the second death.
It is to be under the judgment of God, and the wrath of God - forever.
Jesus actually is much greater than their father Abraham!
His Father is the One they call God, but they don’t know a thing about Him.
Abraham rejoiced in anticipation of the day of Jesus. Then he actually saw it.
God gave Abraham glimpses of events that would happen after his lifetime.
The promises all have one thing in common: the Messiah would fulfill them all.
They thought Jesus was saying He was alive when Abraham walked the earth.
Many verses state that Jesus Christ is God. Few are as potent and succinct as verse 58.
Jesus is the great I AM. Jesus said that He is Yahweh – the God of Abraham!
From start to finish, the gospel of John proclaims the deity of Christ.
