Messiah’s Upper Room takes a break from the book of John as they participate in a 6-week church-wide event called the Red Letter Challenge, exploring the words of Jesus Christ (often shown in red text across translations of the Bible) and putting those words into action.

Pastor Otte and the Upper Room Bible Class continue their talk about the man at Bethesda. The class discusses what Jesus may have meant when He tells the man “sin no more, that nothing worse may happen to you.” Was the man paralyzed because of a past sin?The class also discusses Jesus’s clarification on why He is performing work even on the Sabbath, since His “Father is working until now.” Jesus later goes on to equate Himself with God, which deeply upset the Jews during that time. Learn more in this week’s episode.
