Sermon text: John 10:22-30
Jesus was challenged again during the Hanukkah celebration the winter before His crucifixion. The Jewish people at the temple wanted Him to tell them plainly if He was the Messiah. He had given them abundant confirmation of this in many ways. He had taught them with authority. He had performed many, many miracles. Yet they were not convinced. Their lack of faith stood in the way of them seeing Jesus for who He was. They also were not looking for the right kind of messiah.
