Then Jesus, still teaching in the temple courts, cried out, “Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from. I am not here on my own authority, but he who sent me is true. You do not know him, but I know him because I am from him and he sent me.”
Jesus is not content to leave them confused, but spells it out for them. Yes he is the Messaiah; he has come from God the Father and the Jewish authorities do not know God; they are estranged from him.
How many Christians have assumed that they are following God yet in reality have departed from him, follwoing the world's agenda rather than a divine one?
