In the beginning of John 7 we come across a puzzling incident with Jesus that makes us wonder what’s that all about. Then toward the end of the chapter we see Jesus making a provocative statement (promotes or provokes a response) that grabs our attention. Both of these are connected by the context of a great feast in Jerusalem. What does the puzzling to the provocative show us about Jesus, about God and about ourselves. This is the focus of our time together this morning.
