In our continuing series of studies on the Gospels, we now look at John 5:24-47, a continuation of Jesus Christ’s confrontation over the healing of a lame man on a Sabbath. In arguments loaded with deep theological meaning, Jesus defends Himself against their accusations and calls four surprising witnesses that testify that He really is who and what He says He is.
