John 7:34-36 Hebrews 12

34 You will look for me, but you will not find me; and where I am, you cannot come.” 35 The Jews said to one another, “Where does this man intend to go that we cannot find him? Will he go where our people live scattered among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks? 36 What did he mean when he said, ‘You will look for me, but you will not find me,’ and ‘Where I am, you cannot come’?”

  1. This scripture is saying that once they realized who Jesus really was and realized that He was actually the Messiah it would be after He was hung on the cross and then ascended in heaven. His death would prove to them that He was who He said He was, He would fulfill what all of the prophecies. Then they would look for Him but He would be at the Fathers right hand.

  2. As you see this scene unfolding in history, a verse at a time, I keep yelling from my seat “when are you going to realize that He is speaking of spiritual things”.

    I can only imagine that with Christ in their midst and it still be that difficult for them to see the Kingdom, it is no wonder that we struggle today, 2200 years removed from His earthly presence.

    But, His truth and emphasis are still the same and we still have the Holy Spirit witnessing to us if we will listen. Like I wrote on Thursday night, often God is trying to teach us and to reveal new things and we are too caught up in the things of the earth to notice..

  3. the people did not realize that Jesus was speaking of spiritual things. They assumed that He was a man like us, not htat He was actually the Son of God. So they continually, like R said, only see the physical, human side of what He is saying.

  4. Along with Amy…the Jews are still confused but are about to figure out who Christ really is when He is on the cross and when it says that the Jews will not be able to find Him its because He is already in heaven not where the Jews regularly saw Him everyday.
