The Master’s Questions

“From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him. Then said Jesus unto the twelve, will ye also go away?” (John 6:66,67).

During the early life of the Lord He asked some very thought-provoking questions. “Whom do men say that I the Son of man am?” (Matthew 16:13). This involves Christ’s true identity. Peter was correct when he answered, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16:16). He is both Messiah (Christ) and God. “My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?” (Matthew 27:46). This involves Christ’s substitutionary death. He was forsaken that we might never be forsaken. “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him” (II Corinthians 5:21). “Who is my mother: and who are my brethren?” (Matthew 12:48). This involves Christ’s relationships. He goes on and answers it Himself. “Whosoever shall do the will of my Father which is in heaven, the same is my brother, and sister, and mother” (Matthew 12:50). Spiritual relationships are far stronger than even family ties. “And why call ye me, Lord, Lord, and do not the things which I say?” (Luke 6:46). This involves Christ’s right to complete obedience. It is totally inconsistent to call Jesus Lord, and not obey Him. “What, could ye not watch with me one hour?” (Matthew 26:40). This involves Christ’s desire to have fellowship with believers through prayer. The Lord encourages us to, “Come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need” (Hebrews 4:16). “Will ye also go away?” (John 6:67). This involves those who are Christ’s true followers. Peter answered correctly when he said, “Lord, to whom shall we go? Thou hast the words of eternal life” (John 6:68). NPS
