Believing in Jesus

John 10:22-42

Jesus’ bold declarations and miraculous works were often controversial and divisive. Some chose to believe in Him and some chose not to believe and some even chose to do Him harm. Believing in Jesus was never a blind leap of faith. The scriptures never describe faith in that way. Faith rests in a conviction about the truth of who He is and what He does.
