The Authority of Jesus
The Authority of Jesus Christ come from God! We see this as we look at verse 4, “For he whom God has sent”. This is clear picture that Jesus is from God. Jesus comes by the authority of God. Matthew 28:18 tells us And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Jesus has been sent by God and that He speaks the words of God. This is also affirmed in John 12:49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.
