When Jesus proclaimed that anyone who keeps His word will never see death, the Jewish leaders had so many questions for Him:- Who do you make yourself out to be?- Are you greater than our father Abraham, who died?- Are you greater than the prophets, who died?
They had already been thinking that Jesus needed to die. But Jesus gave them something that provoked them to immediate action – they all grabbed stones to put Him to death. Jesus called Himself “I Am”. To their ears, this was utter blasphemy. This miracle-working Rabbi the God of Moses and the burning bush?!This is a crucial moment in Jesus’ ministry and likely sealed his fate with the Pharisees.This is a crucial verse for our lives as well. Are we willing to believe and proclaim that Jesus Christ is truly God and the only source of life-eternal?
