another occurence of "But the Priests"


This whole chapter (John 12) is very good.  I found it by searching for the term “but the priests” that Damon talked about today on


I especially was struck by verses 42-50:


  42 ¶ Nevertheless among the chief rulers also many believed on him; but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

  43 For they loved the praise of men more than the praise of God.

  44 ¶ Jesus cried and said, He that believeth on me, believeth not on me, but on him that sent me.

  45 And he that seeth me seeth him that sent me.

  46 I am come a light into the world, that whosoever believeth on me should not abide in darkness.

  47 And if any man hear my words, and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.

  48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day.

  49 For I have not spoken of myself; but the Father which sent me, he gave me a commandment, what I should say, and what I should speak.

  50 And I know that his commandment is life everlasting: whatsoever I speak therefore, even as the Father said unto me, so I speak.


Great doctrine here on priorities, the relationship between Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father, and judgment.  Awesome stuff.
