Jesus Came to Save the World (John 12:44-50)
How can the one who believes in Jesus believe, not in Jesus, but in the One who sent him?
If no one has ever seen God, how can the one who sees Jesus see the One who sent him?
Name some ways that Jesus is the light. Name some of the problems with darkness. How does the one who believes in Jesus come out of the darkness? In what way(s) was he in darkness to start with?
Why did Jesus come to save the world? Will he ever come to judge the world? How will that judgment be manifested?
In what way(s) will Jesus’ word serve as a judge on the last day? What does this say about the importance of Jesus’ words. How can we do a better job paying attention to Jesus’ words?
If Jesus is divine, why did the Father need to tell him what to speak? What does this say about Jesus’ submission to the Father? What example does this provide for us in our submission to the Father’s will?
