Sunday Sermon Outline: John 10:22-42

A Discussion on Truth
John 10:22-42

I. The Plain Truth vs. 22-30
     “[22] At that time the Feast of the Dedication took place at Jerusalem; [23] it was winter, and Jesus was walking in the temple in the portico of Solomon. [24] The Jews then gathered around Him, and were saying to Him, “How long will You keep us in suspense? If You are the Christ, tell us plainly.” 
     [25] Jesus answered them, “I told you, and you do not believe; the works that I do in My Father's name, these testify of Me. [26] “But you do not believe because you are not of My sheep. [27] “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me; [28] and I give eternal life to them, and they will never perish; and no one will snatch them out of My hand. [29] “My Father, who has given them to Me, is greater than all; and no one is able to snatch them out of the Father's hand. [30] “I and the Father are one.”” 

II. The Hard Truth vs. 31-38
     “[31] The Jews picked up stones again to stone Him. [32] Jesus answered them, “I showed you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you stoning Me?” 
     [33] The Jews answered Him, “For a good work we do not stone You, but for blasphemy; and because You, being a man, make Yourself out to be God.” 
     [34] Jesus answered them, “Has it not been written in your Law, ‘I SAID, YOU ARE GODS’? [35] “If he called them gods, to whom the word of God came (and the Scripture cannot be broken), [36] do you say of Him, whom the Father sanctified and sent into the world, ‘You are blaspheming,’ because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? [37] “If I do not do the works of My Father, do not believe Me; [38] but if I do them, though you do not believe Me, believe the works, so that you may know and understand that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father.””

Psalms 82, “God takes His stand in His own congregation; He judges in the midst of the rulers. [2] How long will you judge unjustly and show partiality to the wicked? [3] Vindicate the weak and fatherless; Do justice to the afflicted and destitute. [4] Rescue the weak and needy; Deliver them out of the hand of the wicked. 
     [5] They do not know nor do they understand; They walk about in darkness; All the foundations of the earth are shaken. 
     [6] I said, “You are gods, and all of you are sons of the Most High. [7] “Nevertheless you will die like men and fall like any one of the princes.” 
     [8] Arise, O God, judge the earth! For it is You who possesses all the nations.” 

III. The Clear Truth vs. 39-42 
     “[39] Therefore they were seeking again to seize Him, and He eluded their grasp. [40] And He went away again beyond the Jordan to the place where John was first baptizing, and He was staying there. [41] Many came to Him and were saying, “While John performed no sign, yet everything John said about this man was true.” [42] Many believed in Him there.”
