  Jesus

When I seem to say the least I say most - And where I seem to say the most, I just say as much as you can bear.

GH.01:40.04.13,01

 In truth, in the very truth...

The Lord with His disciples stayed for the night in the vicinity of Jerusalem with an innkeeper who was well-disposed towards Jesus and describes how He on the Sabbath morning heals a sick man at the pool Bethesda. The people - particularly the poor - firmly believe in an old legend dating back to the time of Melchisedek, according to which an angel from time to time descends there from heaven and moves the water. The healing leads to a dispute with the temple Jews who are annoyed because the healed man today, on a Sabbath, carries his bed with him in compliance with the Lord‘s bidding (John 5, 1-13).


In GGJ.06 Chapter 2 the Lord first meets the family of Lazarus of Bethany; and they accompany Him and the disciples to the temple. The following events are described according to the Gospel of John 5, 14-27. After Jesus has given His first testimony to His sonship of God a veritable uproar arises in the temple. Now the Lord commands silence and soon there is peace and also the angry Jewish priests listen quietly as He continues.  

The Lord:  "In truth, in very truth, anyone who gives heed to what I say and puts his trust in Him Who sent Me to you people on this earth has eternal life and does not, where his soul is concerned, come under judgment which is the death of matter, but has through such an earnest, living faith already passed from death to true eternal life.  

And again I tell you: In truth, in very truth, the hour is coming, indeed it is already here, when those dead in body and soul shall hear the voice of the Son of God, and all who hear it and believe will thereby come to life eternal. For, as the Father has life-giving power in Himself, so has the Son by the Father‘s gift from eternity. He also gave Him the right to pass judgment on all men, because the eternal Son of God is at present also a Son of Man."

In vol. GGJ 06:003 the Lord, according to John 5, 28-39, refers to the testimony given to His deeds and His works by the Father. These testify, according to the truth, that Jesus was sent to this earth by the Father as His Son. When they do not believe but demur, the Lord tells them:

"Do examine the Scripture yourselves ... it testifies to Me a hundredfold!", adding:

"What have you against Me? Do you dislike the fact that I come to you without any outward sign of splendour lest you become very despondent, faint-hearted and full of fear? Did Elias, when he received in spirit a prophecy about My coming, see Jehovah pass by in the storm or in the fire while he was hidden in the cave?

No, Jehovah passed by in a gentle rustling. And behold, this is now taking place before your eyes. Why do you not want to believe it? Do not My works, done before thousands of witnesses, bear the truest testimony to it? Has anyone ever performed such deeds on earth?"

In   GGJ.06 Chapter 4 the dispute with the Jewish priests about their unbelief sharpens (according to John 5, 40-47) and, finally, the Lord remonstrates with them as follows:  

"If you in your worldly-mindedness had ever believed in Moses, you would now also believe in Me." Thereupon the priests assert that every week they have Moses and the Prophets read to them, but the Lord retorts:

"To be sure, you hear them with your ears, provided you do not go to sleep with your full bellies during the reading, but in your heart you have never listened to them because that is always diverted in all directions with its eager desires." When the people begin to abuse the priests, the latter quickly withdraw to their quarters in the temple. But the Lord and the disciples walk with Lazarus‘ family to the two hours distant property of Lazarus at Bethany.

In Bethany

[GGJ.06:005-7] With Lazarus in Bethany. The Pharisees are fixed to the spot by the Lord, confess and are freed. Moral coercion is a judgment, for spiritual life can only come about through inner conviction and freedom of will. Hence the Lord‘s humble and unpretentious incarnation, so that only His word and His truth may guide the people.

{GGJ 06 chapters  5 to 7]: Some of the templers have followed the Lord and His company to Bethany in order to continue the dispute. When the Lord refuses to become again involved with them, they threaten to fetch the guard from Jerusalem and promptly set out to do so. However, a hundred paces from the house the Lord fixes the hostile ones to the spot, so that they cannot continue. The others who are inclined to believe in the Lord, amongst them some citizens from Jerusalem, immediately understand that this immobilizing is meant by the Lord as a wholesome Sabbath-lesson for those who are after His life because today, on a Sabbath, He healed the sick man at the pool Bethesda, and they are now not mincing words:
 
[GGJ 06:005,10] "We citizens - not priests - of Jerusalem tell you
 evil priests: Here you were truly punished by God, and we now firmly believe that the noble Galilean is exactly what He most truthfully today in the temple proclaimed Himself to be! And only He, as the Son of Him Who punished you here, can help you."  

[GGJ 06:06,01] Only after quite some time does the Lord go out to those who are fixed to the spot. He shows them without further ado that not only does He hear their words but reads also the thoughts in their hearts, then He bids them speak.  

Their spokesman gives many good reasons why they have so far doubted the Deity of the Lord and believe Him to be just a man from Galilee; but they would change their opinion ". . . if you, as is to be hoped, would release us from this great tribulation. We beg you for it!"
 
And they are instantly free. The Lord imposes strict silence on them in connection with this incident and invites them to a meal in the house of Lazarus, for He intends to discuss a few more things with them later on. This discussion is held on the top of a hill near Lazarus‘ house, where there is ample space and many resting benches.  

When up there everything is in order and quiet, the Lord begins to speak:
"First of all I command you to keep all that you will now hear and see strictly to yourselves forever, so that thereby no one shall be coerced - either in his will or in his conscience to believe in Me and My mission, but alone by way of the new teaching intended for that purpose and by way of the signs chosen for it by My wisdom.
 
"Any inner, moral coercion is already in itself a judgment. For, anything a man does not accept and do of his freest will and out of his very own cognition and conviction does not give him life but brings about his judgment. If man is to become quite good and full of the true, spiritual life, he must not be coerced by anything else but his own, quite free and firm will.
 
"Neither law nor reward or punishment must influence him in any way, but only his free belief, his inner conviction and his pure cognition, and only then the obedience of his outer man and his free will, which must stem from the pure love for God and for all that is good and true.
 
"I tell you as the greatest truth, full of light: I could just as easily - and actually even more easily - have come down to earth in the form of a man of giant size, accompanied by countless hosts of angels and under fire, lightning, thunder and storm and proclaim to you the new word of grace in a thunderous, mountain-destroying voice. Surely, none of you could then have had the least doubt, for the greatest terror and fear would have instantly gripped you, so much so that you would have been incapable of even the simplest thought. Would that have benefited anyone in his inner true liberation? Oh, by no means! This would have meant a judgment for every human soul and an imprisonment of all hearts which would have turned them into the hardest rocks.
 
"Behold, this is why, quite unnoticed, I came into this world in this lowliness, just as I had announced Myself through the mouth of the prophets, so that no man‘s heart should be imprisoned but that men should lovingly recognize Me solely through the blissful power of the truth of My words and precepts and then accordingly change their life in freedom. My signs are only meant as a confirmation of the fact that I really am the One as Whom I present Myself to the people.  

"Therefore, I warn you again not to tell anyone about the things you will hear and see during this night, so that no human heart‘s understanding might be imprisoned! Nor shall you allow yourselves to be imprisoned in your hearts, but you shall only be guided by My word and its truth. For, if you spontaneously speak up against My signs and freely act according to the truth of My words, you still have eternal life and its fullest freedom within you. However, if you are only determined by My signs, not heeding the truth of My words, you are imprisoned and under judgment and are nothing but merely human machines without an inner, true spiritual life and therefore dead, just as a stone is dead.

 "I, as the sole Lord and Master of all life and being, have told you this in advance so that you can act accordingly in your heart. Heed these words and you will live."
[GGJ.06:008-010] Moses and Elias, summoned by the Lord, appear and accuse the Pharisees.
