These Jews that were speaking are similar in belief to Jehovah's Witnesses then, for they believe that Jesus is a son of God who is not God just human .
They will not even accept the scripture where James says to Jesus , "Show us the Father !" and then The Lord says in reply : "Have I been so long with you and still you do not know ME ?"
The Jewish people of the times of Christ wanted a ferocious warrior who would suppress the Roman Rule . That is why they yelled let Barrabas go instead ; probably because he, at least , represented forcefulness and rebellion to them , a man's man . They saw Christ as weak and not at all what they expected , consequently he was not received . His strength was from within from God Above . That is not what they wanted , being worldly and loving and desiring power .
Has anything changed today ? People love power and those who have it . It draws them like a magnet . THE REMNANT that will come in will fall in Love with the Lord Jesus because they know HE IS GOD without the showiness , without the shady stuff , without the phoniness .
JESUS is REAL !
this world and the things of the world are passing away , His Beloved .
Oh to be home tonite where this world is over for us forever ...soon , faithful watcher !
love you in Him , bb
