The Reason Jesus Said What He Said

G

Part I

reetings precious people, this week we begin a new series examining the reasons Jesus said what He said. In this series we will examine many statements Jesus made during His time here on earth and then look at the reason for which He made the statement. When Jesus spoke, He spoke the Word of God and the Bible tells us the purpose and function of the Word of God: 2Timothy 3:1617 “All Scripture is Godbreathed, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfected, thoroughly furnished to every good work.” Hebrews 4:12-13 “For the Word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing apart of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart. Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in His sight, but all things are naked and opened to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do.” Everything that Jesus spoke was for a reason, He wasted no words, did not talk merely to talk like some do today. Many times we are told very clearly the reason for which He said what He did, other times we must search deeper. In John 13:21 we read, “When Jesus had said this, He was troubled in spirit, and testified and said, Truly, truly, I say to you that one of you shall betray Me.” The question we must ask is: why did Jesus tell His disciples that one of them would betray them? It was more than just information, the context gives us the answer. Jesus had just washed the feet of the disciples (the job of the most lowly servant) and then we read in John 13:10-20 “Jesus said to him, He who is bathed has no need except to wash his feet, but is clean every whit. And you are clean, but not all. For He knew who would betray Him. Therefore He said, You are not all clean. So after He had washed their feet and had taken His garments and had reclined again, He said to them, Do you know what I have done to you? You call Me the Teacher, and Lord, and you say well, for I AM. If then I, the Lord and the Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet. For I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you. Truly, truly, I say to you, A servant is not greater than his master, neither is he who is sent greater than he who sent him. If you know these things, blessed are you if you do them. I do not speak of you all; I know whom I have chosen; but that the Scripture might be fulfilled, “He who eats bread with me has lifted up his heel against me.” From now I tell you before it comes, so that when it happens you may believe that I AM. Truly, truly, I say to you, He who receives whomever I send receives Me. And he who receives Me receives Him who sent Me.” Jesus had told His disciples that one would betray Him for a much greater reason than just information, it was help them come to faith in Who He is. We read in the previous verses, “I tell you before it comes, so that when it happens you may believe that I AM.” This term “I AM” is one that Jesus used often in talking to His disciples and others, it is the same one that God used to tell Moses Who is was that was talking to him at the burning bush. Exodus 3:13-14 “And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the sons of Israel, and shall say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they shall say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? And God said to Moses, I AM THAT I AM. And He said, So you shall say to the sons of Israel, I AM has sent me to you.” Though Jesus had many times through His teachings, actions, miracles, and testimonies of others proven that He is God, He once again takes the opportunity to tell His disciples Who He is.
