The Authority of Jesus, Part Two

John 5:31-47  (ID: 1188)

Is it possible to be a scholar of the Bible yet completely miss the point? The Pharisees, though students of Scripture, rejected the Savior of whom the scriptures spoke. In this sermon from John 5, Alistair Begg explains that intellectual prowess is not proof of salvation in Jesus Christ. Like the Pharisees, we find ourselves in great danger when we seek the glory of men rather than the glory of God.


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