The Gospel of John: Will You Leave Also?
As Jesus goes to the Festival of Tabernacles, his ministry seems to be in crisis. The religious leaders are plotting to kill him, the crowds can’t decide if he is good or bad, most of his disciples have deserted him, and even his own brothers mock and tease. But it’s important that we understand what Jesus is experiencing in this season, because it mirrors the cultural moment that we are living in. Millions of American Christians are walking away from their faith, and Jesus is once again turning to the remnant that is left and asking “will you leave also?”
