In John 8, Jesus is going round and round with the Pharisees. I can’t count the number of times online that I run across comment sections of articles that leave me frustrated.
There are non-believers who love to argue every single statement, even when the statement isn’t really disputed. They pick on a statement and twist the meaning until the conversation becomes just ridiculous.
Jesus speaks true here…at some point, we have to remember that those not of God may not be able to hear the truth yet. The analogy of blindness and deafness is spot on.
