Jesus, Equal With God

John 5:19-47 JN – Then Jesus answered and said to them, “ Most assuredly, This is an emphatic way of saying, “I’m telling you the truth.” in response to Jewish hostility at the implications of His assertions of equality with God, Jesus became even more fearless, forceful, and emphatic. Jesus essentially tied His activities of healing on

John 11:22

Raising the Dead and Feeding the Five Thousand

Jesus raised His friend Lazarus from the dead. What was significant about the words of the dead man’s sister Martha when Lazarus still lay in the grave?
