John Lesson 13: “Dealing with Death?”
Motivation: Jesus’ most dramatic miracle was set in the midst of mourning. (Matt. 5:4) Jesus can bring gladness out of mourning in anyone’s life! (Isa. 61:3)
John Lesson 12: “Feeling Insecure?”
Motivation: Shepherds in Palestine have always had a place of honor. Although a shepherd ranked near the bottom in pay and social standing, he was admired for his bravery, dedication, and strength. King David was known as the former shepherd boy; shepherds were the first to spread the Good News of the birth of Jesus. In this passage, Jesus calls Himself the Good Shepherd. HCSB, p. 1826: 10:1-42 “In this discourse, Jesus criticized the Jewish leaders for failing to give Israel proper spiritual guidance. By contrast, Jesus is the Good Shepherd who lays down His life for the sheep. Hence chapter 10 provides a commentary on the previous chapter which revealed the Jewish leadership’s legal pettiness, rigidity, and hardness toward God. Not only is Jesus the Good shepherd, He is also the door through which believers find abundant, eternal life (vv 9-10). The following interchange, culminating in another attempt to stone Jesus for blasphemy, took place at the Feast of Dedication (vv. 22-39). It is followed by a final reference to John the Baptist, which closes out the “festival cycle” of chapters 5-10 and the entire section (1:19-10:42), which began with the ministry of John the Baptist and his witness to Jesus.”
