The Attempt to Stone Jesus Was Postponed

John 10:31-42

Jesus and the Father are unified.

Divine Revelation is quite a guide.

Christ became human to sanctify man.

Salvation is a most wonderful plan.


To avoid getting stoned Jesus withdrew.

You can follow Christ.  Won’t you come too?

The Navarre Bible notes are instructive.

They help us cope with the destructive.


John the Baptist prepared us for Jesus.

Followers of John drew near to Jesus.

John said that Jesus is the Messiah.

Christ quoted Scriptures and did miracles.


Work in the name of God is not wasted.

The fruit of Christians is always tasted.

Patrick McCaskey
