John 6:70-71 The Bread of Life [Part 6]

John gives us a historical account of the life of Christ and this includes the description of His betrayer, Judas Iscariot. He is “the son of Simon Iscariot.” John shows us that Judas was a real historical person. He is the real human being who betrayed another real human being (the God-man Jesus Christ). We take an excursus in this sermon to bolster the fact that Scripture records historical truth and what this means for our lives.

John 6:59-71 The Bread of Life [Part 4]

Many of the Lord’s disciples grumbled at His claim to be the Son of God from heaven. As the Lord explains, some of these were unbelievers, and they would not believe even if they were to see Him ascend back into heaven. Unbelief is man’s deplorable condition because he is spiritually dead. But the Spirit regenerates those whom the Father has chosen, so that they believe and enter into life.

John 6:48-51 The Bread of Life

The Lord employs the metaphor of eating and living to powerfully portray what salvation is. Saving faith is to take in the words of Christ and let Him and His authority abide inside of us. And salvation is the undying and forever living fellowship with the holy God that is only possible through the forgiveness of sins through Christ’s death on the cross.
