Will the Witness Take the Stand?

John: That You May Believe

Will the Witness Take the Stand? 

  • The Witness of the Trinity 
  • The Witness of John the Baptist 
  • The Witness of Works 
  • The Witness of Scripture 

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read John 5:30-47. Why is Jesus’ testimony insufficient (v. 31)? Compare with Deuteronomy 17:6.
  2. Who is the “Another” in verse 32? Compare with verse 37. Also look at John 14:16 and 15:26. How do you experience and receive the witness of the Spirit (see John 16:7-15)?
  3. What does Jesus say about John the Baptist? How does this apply to the role of preachers today?
  4. What do the works of Jesus say about him?
  5. How can one be a student of the Bible and still miss the point of the Bible? What is the right way to search the Scriptures? 

Memory Verse of the Week:

John 5:39 You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me. (ESV)
