Knowing One Self – JOHN 1:21
Finally, we see the Jews’ motives when they sought to find out who The Baptist was. They wanted to know if this was the unfolding of Old Testament prophecies. Why is this important? It sets the stage and the objective motives of the Jewish leaders as time progressed in Jesus’s ministry. They were already misguided in their questions as they sought something that they had assumed as a legitimate prophecy. They were seeking for the Baptist to openly admit that he was the reincarnate Elijah, in Malachi 4:5 5 “Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the great and awesome day of the LORD comes.” This episode is also available as a blog post: http://morallife.foundation/2021/12/10/knowing-self-john-121/

CONFESS AND DENY THE WORLD – JOHN 1:20
Many of us look at this statement by John the Baptist’s reply to the Jews when they asked him, “Who are you?” in verse 19, but ironically, has anyone ever wondered why this reply? He could have replied; he was the person that was paving the way for the one to come since that was the core of his teachings. Seeking all those to repent and prepare for the fulfilment of the Old Testament prophecies. The coming of the Messiah had been foretold and was known to the Jews. Alternatively, he could have said that he was John the Baptist. This episode is also available as a blog post: http://morallife.foundation/2021/12/09/confess-and-deny-the-world-john-120/

WHO ARE YOU? JOHN 1:19
he evangelist begins his account of John’s ministry, Now this was John’s testimony when the Jews of Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was. This verse contains the first of many references to ‘the Jews’ in this Gospel. While some of these references are neutral and others positive, many have negative connotations and denote Jesus’ adversaries among the Jewish leadership of the day. Great care needs to be exercised by modern readers in their interpretation of these references so as not to misconstrue them. The evangelist identifies ‘the Jews’ here specifically as ‘the Jews of Jerusalem’, almost certainly referring to members of the Jewish Sanhedrin, or ruling council. Part of their responsibility was to assess the genuineness or otherwise of those claiming to be prophets or the Messiah. So they sent ‘priests and Levites’ to question him. The Levites’ normal role was to support the priests in temple worship and to act as temple police. In this latter capacity, perhaps, they accompanied the priests to question Jesus. voice calling in the desert, in John’s case calling upon people to ‘make straight the way of the Lord’, i.e. to ready themselves for the coming of the Messiah.” This episode is also available as a blog post: http://morallife.foundation/2021/12/09/who-are-you-john-119/

WHAT IS DIVINE LOVE?
What does it mean to give your heart to someone? Is it a precondition that we except something in return. Does it mean it allows us the submission of others to our subjective demands. Does it mean that your love demands a response from someone else. This episode is also available as a blog post: http://morallife.foundation/2022/01/03/what-is-divine-love/
