In John 5, Jesus responded to a charge of blasphemy with a series of claims declaring His unity with God the Father. Although He was known as the “son of Joseph the carpenter,” Jesus is completely one with God His Father. His authority is the same as His Father’s, and He does not – and cannot – act independently of the Father. Alistair Begg reminds us that it is only through Jesus Christ the Son that we may know and honor God the Father.
