John 7:24-26 Hebrews 9

24 Stop judging by mere appearances, and make a right judgment.” 25 At that point some of the people of Jerusalem began to ask, “Isn’t this the man they are trying to kill? 26 Here he is, speaking publicly, and they are not saying a word to him. Have the authorities really concluded that he is the Christ?

  1. ha. well i will start off saying that its hard to type with one hand. but anyway. i think that this is telling us that it IS ok to know christ and worship him. it seems like that the people of jerusalem didnt BELIEVE that it was christ. this one was a little tough. so. i hope i did ok.

  2. when he said stop judging he meant that his enemies should stop making up stuff that wasn’t true.many peeps were confused as to why he had not been arrested if hew was such a threat while the authorities were unsure as to how the people would react if they did arresdt him and if it would cause disciplinary action.

  3. the first verse is my favortie part to not judge by just apppereance which i think is something we all need to learn…to find the heart of God and to see others how He sees them…as a soul who he loves

  4. pretty clear–someone observed that the Jews wanted Christ dead, but here He is out in the open and they are doing nothing about it…ultimately, it wasn’t Jesus’ time to be crucified, therefore they truly werent going to be able to touch Him…

  5. The first verse is a continuation of the preceeding thought. Good observation that these people sought to kill the Christ, here He was, and they were doing nothing. This is a great confirmation that God’s timing supercedes the power and will of man and the closer we are to God’s heart the more in tune we will be with His timing.

  6. Just to agree with Ron and Rick’s thoughts of God’s timing and will superceding those of the world…they couldn’t touch Christ even though He was within their reach until God allowed them to.

  7. Well, not a lot more I can add. The first verse is finishing what Jesus was saying yesterday when He talked about the leaders being angry because He healed a man on the Sabbath. Here He finishes up by saying, Get past the Sabbath thing, get past all the man-made rules about what constitutes “work” and make a right judgement. Go to the heart, to the goodness of the decision. Was what Jesus did for the man done to glorify God and to make someone’s life better as a testimony to the world??? Think on these things when you deal with your friends.
