‘How do we know he said that?’, and the liberating good news of Judge Jesus (Growing Deeper with John 5:19-29)

Can we have confidence that Jesus said what the Bible says he said? Wasn’t the handing down of ancient stories and sayings like the children’s game of telephone, and therefore unreliable?

Definitely not.

The Pulse Podcast is about living abundantly wholeheartedly. It includes different kinds of content: Interviews, featured topics, or biblical studies. This episode is the later.

However, this one is a bit different than the others. It has two parts. In part 1 I explore the question above, especially as it relates to the preservation of the sayings and stories about Jesus in the Gospels. There’s a lot of misinformation out there. In part 2, I take us through our next section of text, John 5:19-29, and explore Jesus’ role as Judge and why that is good, liberating news.

Would you rather have one judge who is for you, or one hundred judges who are against you?


The sermon connected to this same section of text is called “Which Judge would you rather have?” and can be accessed here.
