The Healing at Bethesda | John 5:1-18

We’re using this first part of the year to look at the signs and statements of Jesus found in John’s Gospel. As Mark noted last week, we’re doing so in order to see how each of these signs/miracles and each of these “I am” statements reveal something about Jesus as the full manifestation of God’s
glory—not simply as a wise teacher or a good example, but as God Himself. Last week, Mark walked us through the story of the healing of an official’s son. Today we’re looking at another healing, the healing of a man by the pool of Bethesda. As always, we’ll take our time and walk through the text. As we do that, we’ll consider how this story might connect to our own lives even now. Erik already read our verses, so let’s begin by looking to our Lord in prayer.
