DISBELIEF BREADS DIVISION

The Disbelief Jesus Encounters with Family (7:1–10)
A. The ridicule (7:1–5): Jesus’ half brothers and sisters laugh at the claims of their older half brother!
· Be careful of letting others encourage you to self-promote yourself or act of pride to prove something that God is not directing you to do. Remember Jesus Christ temptation in the Wilderness
B. The response (7:6–10): Jesus says that the world hates him for exposing its sin.
· When ever sin is exposed especially to the unbelieving world hatred and controversy will follow.
· | And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.
· | For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.
· | “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.
· | If you were of the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
II. The Division Jesus Encounters in Jerusalem (7:11–24): Jesus receives a mixed reception while attending the Festival of Shelters.
A. The reaction to him as Savior (7:11–13, 20
1. From the people (7:11–13, 20
Some People feel he is a good man (7:11–12)
Some People feel he is a deceiver (7:13)
Some People feel he is demon-possessed (7:20)
When your will is to do the will of God not everyone will see what you in the correct light
How do mixed feelings about Jesus, the Gospel, or anything else about Gods righteousness impact you?
The most common position is to go with the easiest decision in the flesh.
B. The response from the Savior (7:14–19, 21–24)
1. The overview (7:16–19, 21–24)
a. Jesus says that his mission and message originate from God (7:14–18).
b. Jesus says that the people in his audience do not keep the law of Moses and in fact want to kill him right now (7:19)
c. Jesus asserts that people are judging with immature or false vantage points 24).[1]
“Do not judge by appearances, but judge with right judgment.”” (, ESV)
