Jesus and Abraham (John 8:39-59)
Jesus told the Jews that if they were truly Abraham’s children, they would do the works of Abraham. What are the works of Abraham?
How was the devil the Jews’ father? What are some examples of Satan’s murderous character from the very beginning? In what way(s) does Satan not stand in the truth? How is Satan the father of lies?
“Whoever is of God hears the words of God. The reason why you do not hear them is that you are not of God.” What does Jesus really mean here?
Jesus had asked the Jews, “Which one of you convicts me of sin?” They didn’t have a straight answer. Instead, they answered, “Are we not right in saying that you are a Samaritan and have a demon?” Why would the Jews stoop to name calling?
Why did Jesus not seek his own glory?
How can the one who keeps Jesus word never see death? How did Jesus know God?
Jesus says that Abraham rejoiced to see his day, did see it and was glad. How did Abraham see Jesus’ day?
Why did the Jews take up stones to throw at Jesus?
