When the religious leaders couldn’t understand the message of Christ,they began to abuse him because He ‘insulted’ their intelligence.

Rather than being humble enough to ask clarification they concluded that something must be wrong with Him!

““Who are you?” they asked.

“Just what I have been telling you from the beginning,” Jesus replied.“I have much to say in judgment of you.But he who sent me is trustworthy, and what I have heard from him I tell the world.”

They did not understand that he was telling them about his Father…”John 8:25-27

“Jesus replied, “If I glorify myself, my glory means nothing. My Father, whom you claim as your God, is the one who glorifies me.Though you do not know him, I know him…Your father Abraham rejoiced at the thought of seeing my day; he saw it and was glad.”

 “You are not yet fifty years old,” they said to him, “and you have seen Abraham!”

 “Very truly I tell you,” Jesus answered, “before Abraham was born, I am!”At this, they picked up stones to stone him, but Jesus hid himself, slipping away from the temple grounds…”John 8:54-59

Instead of asking Jesus how He is before Abraham was born,they turned it to quarrel.

Meanwhile,Jesus didn’t say ‘I was’.He said ‘I am’.Anger didn’t allow them to see the difference between the two.Therefore,they missed the revelation!

Whenever you don’t understand something,ask for explanation.

Don’t pick up stones!
