John 2:1-25; 6:1-24; 11:1-44; 7:1–8:59; 10:22-42; 11:45-57.

Jesus knew that words on their own wouldn’t be enough, and so all that He did, from the everyday to the miraculous, would be needed for people to see their redemption in Him. The miracles that Jesus performed are given a high profile in all of the gospels. But it is John who focuses on the negative reactions to all that Jesus did, more than Matthew, Mark, or Luke.

That enables us to connect with the awe, wonder and worship-filled responses to Jesus, as well as the harsher, more confused, and defensive reactions.

Are we able to stand with those who respond with worshipping hearts and changed lives or with those who questioned, doubted, and schemed to stop Jesus?
