John’s “Verily” Series: c. 6 v. 47

Welcome back to another “cup of coffee” length post about Jesus’ “Verily, verily” statements as recorded by John. As I have said before, I believe these statements were intentionally written beginning “Amen, amen” to draw specific attention to the lessons being taught by Jesus. Of course, all of the teachings of Jesus are important. However,Continue reading “John’s “Verily” Series: c. 6 v. 47″

John’s “Verily” Series: c. 6, v. 32

Here we go again. The “Verily, verily” series that I have been learning about. I am trying to get through the book of John searching out the statements that Jesus made beginning with “Verily, verily” (as in the KJV). In other translations, the statements are begun by the words “truly, truly” or “I tell youContinue reading “John’s “Verily” Series: c. 6, v. 32″

John’s “Verily” Series: c.6, vs.26, 27

Welcome back to another post that focuses on the “Verily, verily” statements found in the Gospel of John. In John 6:22-59, we have four “verily, verily” statements.

I hope you have had an amazing week. It has been a busy, busy week. I think that Spring is that season of the year where many begin to “wake up” from the hibernation of the cold winter. We begin to perform our “To Do” list that we have been thinking about during the winterContinue reading “John’s “Verily” Series: ch.5 vs.24,25″

John’s “Verily” Series: John ch5 v19

The “Verily, verily” statement in this verse is “Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of his own accord, but only what he sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, that the Son does likewise. (ESV)” As I said last week, the big idea of this passage is thatContinue reading “John’s “Verily” Series: John ch5 v19″

Welcome back to another installment of what I have named the “Verily, verily” Series. Here, I go through the “Verily, verily” statements that Jesus made as recorded in the Gospel of John.

John’s “Verily” Series: ch.3 v.11

Here is yet another “Verily, verily” statement that Jesus made that John recorded. So far, we have read three “Verily, verily” statements, and we have learned that Jesus is the ‘ladder’ to heaven and that we must be born both physically and spiritually to enter into the Kingdom of God. In this next statement, JesusContinue reading “John’s “Verily” Series: ch.3 v.11″

I’m coming to you with 2 “Verily, verily” statements by Jesus. And we will talk about them together because the second one is a further detailing of the first one.
