Jesus was a constant puzzle to the Pharisees. Sometimes he is a bit puzzling to us, too. And we have had a lot of time to digest what he was saying. And, let’s face it, some of the things he was saying were pretty far out. This is not just a good man we are listening to; not merely a great teacher.

He was standing in the environs of the Temple one day and he said to the people gathered around, I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

The Pharisees recognized this as a very large claim on Jesus’ part and they challenged it. They said, Look, We’re not going to believe this just because you say so. You are bearing record of yourself. This was not an unreasonable objection. If I told you I was a prophet you would have every right to say, That’s what you say. Why should I believe it? Let’s take a look at Jesus’ answer in John, chapter 12.
