. . . wrote of me.” Bead all o f this wonderful discourse in the fifth chapter o f John for evidence. He said also: “ I am the bread of life . . . which came down from Heaven” (John 6:35, 41, 48, 51 ) ; “ I proceedeth forth and came from God” (John 8 : 4 2 ) ; “ Before Abra ham was, I am” (John 8 :58 ). The man born blind whom Christ healed was asked: “ Dost thou believe on the Son o f God? He answered and said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on Him? And Jesus said unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee . . . and he worshipped him” ( John 9:35-38). A g a i n in John 10:30 Jesus declares, “ I and my Father are one.” The Greek word for one in this passage is en meaning substance or essence, and not eis, the masculine form meaning one person. Colossians 2 :9 states: “ For in him dwelleth all the fulness o f the God head bodily.” In I Timothy 3:16 we have the briefest, but most signifi cant, biography o f Christ ever writ ten: “ And w i t h o u t controversy great is the mystery o f godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justi fied in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” Finally, Hebrews 1:8, 10 corroborates the truth o f His eternal equality with the Father. God the Father is speaking to God the Son when He says, “ Thy throne, 0 God, is forever and ever. . . . Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foun dation o f the earth; and the heavens are the work o f thine hands.” Here the Lord Jesus is called God, Lord and Creator; Col. 1:13-17 also bears out the truth that He was the agent in creation, the Word of John 1:3: “Without him was not anything made that was made.” One must be lieve not that I am he, ye shall die Jesus Himself declared: “ If ye be lieve not that I am He, ye shall die in your sins” (John 8: 24 ). M ID -DA Y A N D M ID N IG H T Q. Is there any significance to the facts that. Saul of Tarsus, who be came Paul, was converted at mid day; and later he and Silas sang in the jail at midnight? A. There may not be any particular meaning in those times o f day and night but it certainly makes a won derful illustration. We meet God at mid-day and turn our lives over to Him; then midnight comes in our lives, as it does to all: persecution, bereavement, s o r r o w , temptation, testings — and He is there as He was at mid-day.
