Jesus performs amazing miracles. The power of God is in him in a mighty way. Right before this, he raised Lazarus from the dead. The blind see, the lame walk, the demon possessed are made whole. On and on it goes.

Jesus challenges me to not just listen to what he says about himself but to balance that with the evidence of what he does. The lame still walk. The blind still see. The power of Jesus through the Holy Spirit in us creates the evidence.

Jesus is the Son of God. That is the point here. Jesus is in charge of God’s country (aka Kingdom). Jesus not only said it but he proved it. The final act of his Resurrection and Ascension to heaven are our ultimate proof.

Jesus said, “I’m only quoting your inspired Scriptures, where God said, ‘I tell you—you are gods.’ If God called your ancestors ‘gods’—and Scripture doesn’t lie—why do you yell, ‘Blasphemer! Blasphemer!’ at the unique One the Father consecrated and sent into the world, just because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? If I don’t do the things my Father does, well and good; don’t believe me. But if I am doing them, put aside for a moment what you hear me say about myself and just take the evidence of the actions that are right before your eyes. Then perhaps things will come together for you, and you’ll see that not only are we doing the same thing, we are the same—Father and Son. He is in me; I am in him.”
