The Authority of Jesus, Part One

John 5:31-47  (ID: 1187)

Many people questioned the identity and authority of Jesus during His ministry, and many still do today. In John chapter 5, Jesus identified three witnesses, God the Father, John the Baptist, and His own works, as He responded to those who challenged His claims. In this message, Alistair Begg teaches us that the same witnesses to the identity and authority of Jesus confirm His claims today, and he challenges us to consider if we have taken Jesus at his word or if we, like those in John 5, are guilty of unbelief.


31If I alone bear witness about myself, my testimony is not true.
