Why Do You Believe in Jesus?

Romans 10:17 (Listen)

17 So faith comes from hearing, and hearing through the word of Christ.


John 5:10–15 (Listen)

10 So the Jews1 said to the man who had been healed, “It is the Sabbath, and it is not lawful for you to take up your bed.” 11 But he answered them, “The man who healed me, that man said to me, ‘Take up your bed, and walk.’12 They asked him, “Who is the man who said to you, ‘Take up your bed and walk’?” 13 Now the man who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had withdrawn, as there was a crowd in the place. 14 Afterward Jesus found him in the temple and said to him, “See, you are well! Sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.” 15 The man went away and told the Jews that it was Jesus who had healed him.


[1] 5:10 The Greek word Ioudaioi refers specifically here to Jewish religious leaders, and others under their influence, who opposed Jesus in that time; also verses 15, 16, 18


Hymn: TLH 718, st. 1,5 :
O Jesus, King of Glory

1. O Jesus, king of glory,
Both David’s Lord and Son!
Your realm endures forever,
In Heav’n is fixed Your throne.
Help that in earth’s dominions,
Throughout from pole to pole,
Your reign may spread salvation,
To each benighted soul.

5. Ah, look on me with pity
Though I am weak and poor;
Admit me to Your kingdom
To dwell there, blest and sure.
I pray You, guide and keep me
Safe from my bitter foes,
From sin and death and Satan;
Free me from all my woes.
