MURP 0079: My Father is Working

Pastor Otte and the Upper Room Bible Class continue their talk about the man at Bethesda. The class discusses what Jesus may have meant when He tells the man “sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.” Was the man paralyzed because of a past sin?

The class also discusses Jesus’s clarification on why He is performing work even on the Sabbath, since His “Father is working until now.” Jesus later goes on to equate Himself with God, which deeply upset the Jews during that time. Learn more in this week’s episode.
