Psalm: 25


John: There is much legal talk in this reading. Jesus talks about “testifying”; the need for two witnesses. This is straight from Deuteronomy 17:6 & 19:15. There need to be two or three eye-witnesses to convict and to execute. Jesus had abundant witnesses. Let’s begin with John the Baptist who said “Behold the Lamb of God” (John 1:29). Next the Father Who spoke up at Jesus’ baptism. “This is My beloved Son” (Matthew 3:17) and then, of course the miracles he performed.

Gospel: John 5:30-47

New Testament: Acts 8:1-13

Old Testament: Judges 18:1-15
