John 5v39-47

Believe The Scriptures

In this sermon, we look at the final witness the Lord Jesus presents that speaks of Him as the Messiah; the scriptures. Nathan Tarrant addresses a number of key points from what the Lord Jesus says, specifically as to whether the scriptures will accuse us because of our lack of belief in them and whether we fail to have them as the final authoritative rule for our faith and life.

You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, 40 yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life. 41 I do not receive glory from people. 42 But I know that you do not have the love of God within you. 43 I have come in my Father’s name, and you do not receive me. If another comes in his own name, you will receive him. 44 How can you believe, when you receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God? 45 Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father. There is one who accuses you: Moses, on whom you have set your hope. 46 For if you believed Moses, you would believe me; for he wrote of me. 47 But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?”
