Daily Bible teaching with Dr. John Neufeld from Back to the Bible Canada.
The "Jesus" of our making is comforting and soothing. He nurtures our preferences and accepts our faults. But the Jesus of the Scriptures has always found opposition. Our culture (and every culture before us) has scorned Jesus because He doesn't fit our wishes or intentions. Listen as Dr. John itemizes the reasons for public offense. Nothing proves more offensive than the cross – the very means of deliverance and life.
Why Follow Jesus?: John 6 is an evaluation of what it means to truly believe. Just like the Parable of the Sower, some people seem to believe for awhile, but in due time will walk away. John 6 is an invitation to examine good and bad reasons for believing in Jesus. It explains why some people will only believe for a period of time, and others will never stop believing for all eternity. This chapter is an invitation for us to examine our own reasons for either believing in Jesus, or rejecting Jesus.
