August 1, 2017 Pssalm 143, John 5, Psalm 150, (22)

We had a discussion about the death penalty for healing on the Sabbath. What about the link between sinning and the consequences of that sinning. Jesus cured him with a word so that the man didn’t need the water. There was no mention of faith here as there have been in other healing. The authority of the son is a somewhat confusing section of text, but introduces the concept of eternal life. Jesus said that Moses had prophesied about Jesus being the messiah. If Jesus is God’s equal why does he have to be educated. Dan says that Jesus is coequal with God. In born humility you walk with the gospel and it inflames you with the spirit.
