God the Father testifies about His Son. He does this through John the Baptist, by the signs and wonders and in all the scriptures (the Old Testament). Meanwhile the Jewish leaders were ignoring the testimony of God and preferring to get praised by their colleagues. They refuse to come to Jesus and have eternal life. Who do you want praise from, God or men? To listen to sermons in the John series click here
