Witnesses to Jesus

In the gospel of John, chapter 5, we read:

The Jews were seeking all the more to kill [Jesus], because not only was He breaking the Sabbath, but He was even calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God [John 5:18]

In order to provide proof for His claim as the Son of God, and show the Jews their error, Jesus presents a number of witnesses in John 5:30-47.  A witness is one who provides evidence or support, and in the passage we see the evidence Jesus’ witnesses offer in support of His identity as the Son of God.

Read John 5:30-47.

  1. What are the different witnesses Jesus presents?
  2. Is there a reason Jesus provides multiple witnesses?
  3. Do the witnesses mentioned in the John 5:30-47 exist today?
