(1-4) Walk Thru The Word:  John 20: 1-31  (ESV)

Christ is resurrected & the Stone Is Rolled away!

1Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw that the stone had been taken away from the tomb. 2So she ran and went to Simon Peter and the other disciple, the one whom Jesus loved, and said to them, “They have taken the Lord out of the tomb, and we do not know where they have laid him.” 3So Peter went out with the other disciple, and they were going toward the tomb. 4Both of them were running together, but the other disciple outran Peter and reached the tomb first. 5And stooping to look in, he saw the linen cloths lying there, but he did not go in. 6Then Simon Peter came, following him, and went into the tomb. He saw the linen cloths lying there, 7and the face cloth, which had been on Jesus’a head, not lying with the linen cloths but folded up in a place by itself. 8Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; 9for as yet they did not understand the Scripture, that he must rise from the dead. 10Then the disciples went back to their homes.

Jesus Appears to Mary Magdalene

11But Mary stood weeping outside the tomb, and as she wept she stooped to look into the tomb. 12And she saw two angels in white, sitting where the body of Jesus had lain, one at the head and one at the feet. 13They said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping?” She said to them, “They have taken away my Lord, and I do not know where they have laid him.” 14Having said this, she turned around and saw Jesus standing, but she did not know that it was Jesus. 15Jesus said to her, “Woman, why are you weeping? Whom are you seeking?” Supposing him to be the gardener, she said to him, “Sir, if you have carried him away, tell me where you have laid him, and I will take him away.” 16Jesus said to her, “Mary.” She turned and said to him in Aramaic,b “Rabboni!” (which means Teacher). 17Jesus said to her, “Do not cling to me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to my brothers and say to them, ‘I am ascending to my Father and your Father, to my God and your God.’” 18Mary Magdalene went and announced to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord”—and that he had said these things to her.

Jesus Appears to the Disciples

19On the evening of that day, the first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear of the Jews,c Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.” 20When he had said this, he showed them his hands and his side. Then the disciples were glad when they saw the Lord. 21Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” 22And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”

Thomas Doubts & Then Touches Jesus

24Now Thomas, one of the twelve, called the Twin,d was not with them when Jesus came. 25So the other disciples told him, “We have seen the Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the mark of the nails, and place my finger into the mark of the nails, and place my hand into his side, I will never believe.”

26Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” 27Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and see my hands; and put out your hand, and place it in my side. Do not disbelieve, but believe.” 28Thomas answered him, “My Lord and my God!” 29Jesus said to him, “Have you believed because you have seen me? Blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”

The Purpose of This Book

30Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; 31but these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

Happy Resurrection — He is risen!

“Christ’s resurrection Provides Assurance of our Redemption

  • John 1: 1-3 29 Christ The Creator Is Incarnated & John The Baptist bears Witness that He is The Lamb of God Who Takes Away the Sins of the World
  • John 20: 1-4 Christ is resurrected & the Stone Is Rolled away!
  • Our Challenge is to recognize & know the lamb as he reveals himself from genesis to revelation!
  • our mission is to testify of what the good news of christ means to us & Should Mean to Others!!

(6) John 1: 1-3  (ESV)  Christ The Creator Is incarnated to Become The Central Focus of History & Take Away the sins of the World!

  1. John 1:1-3 Christ the creator is incarnated. (Christ assuming a fleshly, human body and the nature of man; as the Son of God.) Through Him all things come into being. 3All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.
  2. 4 In Him was life, (the essence of God’s self-existent life; both of physical & spiritual, and both present & future) and that life was the light (God’s divine illumination to reveal and impart life, through Christ.) of men.
  3. 12-13But to all who did receive him (actively lay hold of by aggressively (actively) accepting what God offers and makes available, with the emphasis on the volitional assertiveness of the receiver), who believed in his name, he gave the right (the exousia, the authority God gives to His saints to act guided by faith (consistently with His revealed word) to become children of God, 13who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

(7) John 1: 6–29  (ESV) John The Baptist came to bear witness of christ

  • John 1: 6-29 We are introduced to the ministry of John The Baptist, who we see in John 1: 6-8, 15 & 32-34 came to bear witness (give testimony, give evidence, testify, give a good report; actually means be a martyr, indicating that one must in someway die to self to identify with Christ to testify of Him and the difference He’s made in our lives.) about the light of Christ, (Matt 10:39 & 16:25)
  • Matt 10:39, If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.
  • Matthew 16:25 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life
  • for me will find it.
  • John 1: 6-7 6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him.
  • John’s Witness in John 1:29 is that “The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! (lamb = a type of innocence, likened to a sacrificial lamb, who innocently and patiently endures death, to expiate sin) (Acts 8:32, 1 Pet 1:19, Matt 1:23 Luke 1:34, Num 6:14 & 28:4 ) .
  • Acts 8:32, “Like a sheep he was led to the slaughter and like a lamb before its shearer is silent, so he opens not his mouth.
  • 1 Pet 1:19 but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot
  • Leviticus 1:10 If, however, one’s offering is a burnt offering from the flock–from the sheep or goats–he is to present an unblemished
  • Leviticus 22:20 You must not present anything with a defect, because it will not be accepted on your behalf.
  • Romans 3:25 God presented Him as an atoning sacrifice through faith in His blood, in order to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance He had passed over the sins committed beforehand.

Like John, we too are to be witnesses that Christ’s is “The true light, which gives light to everyone!” (John 1:9) Our testimony needs to include:

John’s Witness is in John 1:29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!

  • incidentally, John also bears witness to How God is a 3-in-One Trinity, in John 1:

John 1: 35-19 The calling of Christ’s disciples demonstrate how God uses our witness of Christ to draw others into the faith, who in turn follow Christ to fulfill the missions He gives each of us. 

  • JtB points Jesus out to Andrew, who tells Peter

ABOUT THE GOSPEL OF JOHN, Matthew Henry says “John lived longest of all the twelve apostles, and was the only one of them that died a natural death.  All the rest suffered martyrdom. Its believe John wrote this gospel at Ephesus, at the request of the ministers of the several churches of Asia, in opposition to the heresy of Corinthus and the Ebionites, who held that our Lord was a mere man. It seems most probable that he wrote it before his banishment onto the isle of Patmos, for there he wrote his Apocalypse, the close of which seems designed for the closing up of the canon of scripture;”

We bear witness to the 5 Attributes of Christ Messianic Position — so Our testimony needs to include:

1) Christ was born of a virgin. (Isaiah 7:14,  Matt 1:23, Luke 1:34)

  • Isaiah 7:14 Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and she will call Him Immanuel.
  • Matthew 1:23 “Behold, the virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call Him Immanuel” (which means, “God with us”).
  • Luke 1:34 And Mary said to the angel, “How will this be, since I am a virgin?”

2) Christ lived a sinless life.

  • (2 Corinthians 5:21 God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
  • 1 Peter 2:22 “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in His mouth.” 
  • Hebrews 4:15 For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who was tempted in every way that we are, yet was without sin.
  • Hebrews 7:26 Such a high priest truly befits us–One who is holy, innocent, undefiled, set apart from sinners, and exalted above the heavens.
  • 1 John 3:5 But you know that Christ appeared to take away sins, and in Him there is no sin.)

3) Christ died a substitutionary death.

  • Romans 3:25 God presented Him as an atoning sacrifice through faith in His blood, in order to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance He had passed over the sins committed beforehand.
  • Romans 4:25, He was delivered over to death for our trespasses and was raised to life for our justification.
  • Romans 8:3 For what the Law was powerless to do in that it was weakened by the flesh, God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful man, as an offering for sin. He thus condemned sin in the flesh,
  • 1 Corinthians 1:30 It is because of Him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God: our righteousness, holiness, and redemption.
  • Galatians 3:13 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the Law by becoming a curse for us. For it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.”
  • 1 John 3:5But you know that Christ appeared to take away sins, and in Him there is no sin.

4) Christ is bodily resurrected 

  • Acts 10: 40-41 God raised Him up on the third day and caused Him to be seen— 41not by all the people, but by the witnesses God had chosen beforehand, by us who ate and drank with Him after He rose from the dead.
  • Luke 24: 36As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, “Peace to you!” 37But they were startled and frightened and thought they saw a spirit. 38And he said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” 40And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. 41And while they still disbelieved for joy and were marveling, he said to them, “Have you anything here to eat?” 42They gave him a piece of broiled fish,b 43and he took it and ate before them.
  • Acts 13:30 But God raised him from the dead,
  • 1 Corinthians 6:14 By his power God raised the Lord from the dead, and he will raise us also.)
  • Colossians 2:12 having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were also raised with him through your faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.
  • 1 Peter 1:21 Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and glorified him, and so your faith and hope are in God.
  • Galatians 1:1 Paul, an apostle–sent not from men nor by a man, but by Jesus Christ and God the Father, who raised him from the dead-

5) Christ is seated at the right hand of God.

  • Ephesians 1:20 that he worked in Christ when he raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in the heavenly places,
  • Rev 5:13 And I heard every creature in heaven and on earth and under the earth and in the sea, and all that is in them, saying, “To him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb
  • be blessing and honor and glory and might forever and ever!”
  • ,Rev 14:14 14And I looked and saw a white cloud, and seated on the cloud was One like the Son of Man, with a golden crown on His head and a sharp sickle in His hand.

(8) John 20: 1-4  Christ is resurrected & the Stone Is Rolled away!

14 The Stone was rolled uphill and away from the opening of the tomb because …    .

  1. it was a demonstration of angelic power
  2. the soldiers got saved and moved it
  3. the disciples bribed the soldiers to defy Roman penalty of death and move it.
  4. God wanted to let the disciples in to see the empty

(9) John 20: 19 & 26  (ESV)

Fearful disciples did not steal Christs body

At this time, the disciples are in fear behind locked doors!

  • 19On the evening of that … first day of the week, the doors being locked where the disciples were for fear (terror, alarm, withdrawal, fleeing because feeling inadequate) of the Jews, Jesus came and stood among them and said to them, “Peace be with you.”
  • 26Eight days later, his disciples were inside again, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were locked, (shut up) Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.”

(10) John 20: 1-4  (ESV)

Our Challenge is to recognize & know the lamb as he reveals himself from genesis to revelation!

The disciples did not quite recognize and doubted it was Jesus in  … 

  • John 20; 14-15 Mary Magdalene … turned around and saw Jesus standing, but … supposing him to be the gardner.”
  • Matt 28:17 The disciples meet Christ on the mountain He designated, and some doubted” just as He’s giving them the Great Commission.”
  • John 21: 12-14 Jesus prepares breakfast,and none of the disciples dared ask him, Who are you?” They knew it was the Lord. Jesus came and took the bread and gave it to them, and so with the fish. This was now the third time that Jesus was revealed to the disciples after he was raised from the dead.
  • Luke 24: 30-31 30While He was reclining at the table with them, He took bread, spoke a blessing and broke it, and gave it to them. 31Then their eyes were opened and they recognized Jesus—and He disappeared from their sight.… They  probably recognized Christ when he exposed His nail scarred wrists when breaking and blessing the bread!
  • Luke 24: 36As they were talking about these things, Jesus himself stood among them, and said to them, “Peace to you!” 37But they were startled and frightened and thought they saw a spirit. 38And he said to them, “Why are you troubled, and why do doubts arise in your hearts? 39See my hands and my feet, that it is I myself. Touch me, and see. For a spirit does not have flesh and bones as you see that I have.” 40And when he had said this, he showed them his hands and his feet. 41And while they still disbelieved for joy and were marveling, he said to them,Have you anything here to eat?42They gave him a piece of broiled fish,b 43and he took it and ate before them.
  • Matt 28:17 The disciples meet Christ on the mountain He designated, and some doubted” just as He’s giving them the Great Commission.”
  • Acts 1:3 After His suffering, He presented Himself to them with many convincing proofs that He was alive. He appeared to them over a span of forty days and spoke about the kingdom of God.

They could not recognize Christ because he was arrested as a bearded healthy man, and was taken down from it so marred, he was not recognizable.  It’s like having a “lapso-apso” dog when you go to work, and you come home to a mangled Chihuahua.

Psalm 22: 14I am poured out like water, and all my bones are out of joint; my heart is like wax; it is melted within my breast; 15my strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue sticks to my jaws; you lay me in the dust of death  … 18they divide my garments among them, and for my clothing they cast lots.

Zech. 12:10 10“And I will pour out on the house of David and the inhabitants of Jerusalem a spirit of grace and pleas for mercy, so that, when they look on me, on him whom they have pierced, they shall mourn for him, as one mourns for an only child, and weep bitterly over him, as one weeps over a firstborn.

(11) John 20: 23  The Resurrected Christ Calls Us to Ministry

John 1:21   21Jesus said to them again, “Peace be with you. As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.”(dispatching you to transmit God’s message). Before we can be sent as God’s tranmitters, we must believe.

8Then the other disciple, who had reached the tomb first, also went in, and he saw and believed; (was persuaded to have faith) 9for as yet they did not understand the scripture, (the, God-breathed, Holy Spirit inspired, inerrant writings of the Bible, comprised of the 66 books of Scripture, 39 in Hebrew, 27 in Greek) that he must rise resurrect from the dead (from being a deceased, lifeless corpse).

Luke 24:28 27And beginning with Moses and all the Prophets, (those gifted at expositing divine truth to declare the mind & message of God) He explained to them what was written in all the Scriptures about Himself.

 22And when he had said this, he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. 23If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you withhold forgiveness from any, it is withheld.”

  • Since Jesus directly breathed on them, I surmise His provision for them in 22-23 is directly and only met for them.

(12) DAN 9: 25  Daniel 70 Weeks explained by Chuck Missler

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iRFIJDlG_w0

The Triumphal Entry was the only time during Christ’s incarnation on earth that He allowed Himself to be lifted up and treated as an earthly king!  And it was the very day that the angel Gabriel foretold to Daniel in Dan 9:25 that it would occur.  

Daniel: 9: 24-27 24“Seventy weeks are decreed about your people and your holy city, to finish the transgression, to put an end to sin, and to atone for iniquity, to bring in everlasting righteousness, to seal both vision and prophet, and to anoint a most holy place.d 25Know therefore and understand that from the going out of the word to restore and build Jerusalem to the coming of an anointed one, a prince, there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built againe with squares and moat, but in a troubled time. 26And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Its end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed. 27And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week,g and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.”

To understand Daniel’s THE 69 WEEKS of YEARS, we do this math:

(7+62=) 69 weeks x 7 (the number of days in each week) x 360 (days of the Hebrew calendar year) = 173,800 days

  • In fulfillment of prophecy in Dan 9:25, the Commandment to Restore Jerusalem was made by the Decree of Artaxerses Longimanus on Mar 14, 445 BC.
  • John 12: 12-19 Christ enters Jerusalem in the “Triumphal Entry” on the only day, He allows Himself to be proclaimed as King, which was on April 6, 32 AD
  • This was Prophesied approximately 300 years before Christ fulfilled it. (Probably 267 years before the incarnation, since Christ was crucified at age 33.
  • 445 BC — 32 AD       = 173,740 days
  • March 14 — April 26 =          24 days
  • Leap Years account for 116 days
  • Total 173,800 days

Dan 9: 26 = Christ Crucified & Jerusalem Temple Destroyed AD 70

26 Dan 9:25 – And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing.  (with “nothing,” being a reference to the destruction of Jerusalem in AD70, as the enemies of God thought, we’ve destroyed what the Hebrews had so they are left with nothing.

To understand Daniel’s 70 WEEKS of YEARS, we do this math …  (7+62=) 69 weeks x 7 (the number of days in each week) x 360 (days of the Hebrew calendar year)  … and thus account for 69 of the 70 weeks.

Dan 9: 26 = The period of time from Christ’s Crucifixion in AD 33 & the destruction of Jerusalem Temple in AD 70.  Dan 9:26, says, “26And after the sixty-two weeks, an anointed one shall be cut off and shall have nothing. And the people of the prince who is to come shall destroy the city and the sanctuary. Itsf end shall come with a flood, and to the end there shall be war. Desolations are decreed.”

“Desolation” = the destruction or expulsion of inhabitants — as in Israel is made homeless as a nation, during this interval period! 

This interval period between Dan 9: 26 & 27 is the CHURCH AGE spanning Math 16:18 — Rev 4: 1-5

Between Dan 9: 26 & 27 is the CHURCH AGE, spanning Math 16:18 — Rev 4: 1-5

THE CHRUCH AGE spans — Matthew 16:18 when Jesus tells Peter, “And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it — Revelation 4:1-5, when the lampstand/torches of the church (explained in Rev 1:20) are called up to Heaven, symbolized in John’s vision, where the voice like a trumpet calls him up through the open door in Heaven in Rev 4:1). 

The CHURCH AGE includes an INTERVAL PERIOD for Israel which is “desolated and made homeless for much of that time.  Israel became a nation in 1948, perhaps signaling we may be near the end of the Interval period between Daniel 9: 26 & 27.  

Daniel 9:27 points to the time of Revelation chapters 6-19 when “27And he shall make a strong covenant with many for one week,g and for half of the week he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering. And on the wing of abominations shall come one who makes desolate, until the decreed end is poured out on the desolator.” This means the following: 

  • “He,” meaning a very Charismatic world leader, will make a strong or a strong-armed covenant, meaning he will compel Israel to make a covenant which many in Israel will agree with and think it is what’s best for them. 
  • Keeping in mind that in Daniel 9: 24-27 each day represents a 360 day year, and so the “for one week” = a seven year period. So “and for half of the week [3 1/2 years into the 7 year period] he shall put an end to sacrifice and offering.” Sacrifice and offering” indicate that Israel has rebuilt its Jerusalem temple and resumed Old Testament covenant animal sacrifices and offerings, but in the middle of the Revelation Tribulation period, however, the anti-Christ charismatic leader will renege on the covenant, and stop Israel from participating in its Mosaic covenant rituals. 
  • God judges the desolator, who along with several others before him, commits what the Bible calls the “abomination of desolation,” meaning that which causes God to withdraw His presence of blessing and to respond with swift, harsh, overwhelming judgement. The “abomination of desolation is an act whereby a political leader puts a statute of themselves or some other idol in the Hebrew temple, and commands others to worship it.
  • So detestable and filthy is this to God that …
  • )שֹׁמֵם ׳שׁ Daniel 11:31; Daniel 12:11 destested thing causing horror is the heathen altar erected in temple by Antiochus Epiphanes, with (probably) a statue of Zeus Olympios = (Phoenician) בלְשמם lord of heaven; the prophet puts שִׁקּוּץ for בעל, and (מְ)שֹׁמֵם for שָׁמַיִם; compare NesZAW iv (1884), 248 CheOP 103 DrDn.

(14) John 20: 18 & Matt. 28: 18-20

Our Responsibility is To Respond To Recognize & Report by submitting  to Him and become a witness by reporting what Hes done for us.

Matt. 28: 18-20 18And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. 19 go (travel, journey, go, along your personal journey and way, die to self and be Christs adherent, which means submit and support His cause,) therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them inb the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, 20teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”…

God’s wants people everywhere to hear these things:

  • Romans 10:9 If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
  • Acts 3:15 You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead. We are witnesses of this. … You killed the author of life, but God raised him from the dead.
  • Acts 17:30-32 …30… God …now commands all men everywhere to repent. 31For He has set a day when He will judge the world with justice by the Man He has appointed. He has given proof of this to all men by raising Him from the dead.”
  • Our responsibility is to witness regardless of people’s responses Acts 17: 32 When they heard about the resurrection of the dead, some began to mock him, but others said, “We want to hear you again on this topic.”…

(15) Walk Thru The Word:  John 16: 7-  (ESV) We Respond to The Holy spirit

John 16  7-11 7Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. 8And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: 9concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

The the work of the Holy Spirit is to 

  • 8And when he comes, he will convict (convince and show to be guilty) the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment:
  • 9-10concerning sin, (missing the mark & failing with God) because they do not believe in me;” meaning we must acknowledge we are sinners to repent and obtain the righteousness of Christ and be made acceptable to God!
  • 11concerning judgement, (divine negative” verdict) because the ruler of this world is judged.

(16) Walk Thru The Word:

John 3: 16–21  (ESV)

God’s Love Us & Calls Us to Repentance & Salvation

2 Peter 3:9The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance.

John 3: 16 – 21 16“For God so loved the world,i that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. 17For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. 18Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned 19And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. 20For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. 21But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.”
