Hearing the Father’s Witness: Knowledge, Testimony, and Glory, John 5:30-47


What does it mean to know something? Jesus makes some astounding claims about his identity in John chapter five. He says that he is the Son of God. And then he anticipates the next question his hearers will have: On what basis should they believe these claims about his identity? Jesus tells them that they already possess three pieces of testimony They “know” those three pieces of testimony … but they don’t really know them.
