When the Impotent Meets Omnipotent

September 22, 2019

Bible Text: John 5:1-5 |


We continue in our series on the signs of Jesus as recorded in John’s gospel with a look at the healing of the invalid at the pool of Bethesda. Jesus asks this man, who had been in this shape for 38 years: “Do you want to get well?” The questions seems obvious, if not a bit insulting. Why would Jesus ask it? Answers to this question help uncover the kind of life we settle into as well as opposed to the kind of life Jesus came to give.
