The Plight of Man & the Power of Christ

John 5:1-18  (ID: 1178)

When Jesus visited the Pool of Bethesda in John 5, He encountered a man who had been an invalid for many years. Commanding the man to "Get up and walk," the Lord healed him instantly of his affliction. In this message, Alistair Begg encourages us with the reminder that although we are all hopeless and helpless without the grace of God, Jesus still sets sinners free.


The Healing at the Pool on the Sabbath

1After this there was a feast of the Jews, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.
