6-20-2021 “BELIEVE IN ME!” John 14:1-3

This week Bro. Leo starts us on a study of Jesus’ words “believe in me”.

In John 14:1-3 Jesus is trying to comfort the Disciples because He had just told them that He will be crucified the next day (John 13:21, 38, 36). The disciples were still confused about exactly who Jesus was (John 14:8-9). When Jesus tells them to “believe” in Him, He is referring to the second part of the definition of “pisteuō”(believe) which is trusting in, put confidence in, to rely on, attaching oneself to, giving over to another. In Psa.37:3, Psa.4:5 the word “trust” is translated from the Hebrew word “bâṭach” which means to trust in, put confidence in, to rely on, attaching oneself to, giving over to another.
