Jesus & the Cultural Collision

The Gospel of John

John 5:1-47

The Miracle and The Problem (1-18)

Christ puts every believer on a collision course with culture.

  1. Jesus is perfect- thus every other religious leader is flawed (16-20)
  2. Jesus has absolute power- thus the supernatural is real (21-26)
  3. Jesus has ultimate authority- thus hell is real (27-30)
  4. Only God Can save- thus man is helpless (31-44)
  5. Humans stand condemned- thus man is accountable (45-47)
