Christ’s Knowledge of the Father

Christ responds to the people of Jerusalem, “Ye both know Me and know whence I am!”  Then He once again shows who He is by teaching upon His special relationship to the Father.  He speaks of being sent by the Father, indicating His pre-existence and divine original.  Such teaching occurs numerous times in the gospel of John, which shows how important it is that we understand and embrace the truth of who Christ is, and that we fall not after the same evil example of unbelief as those who heard Him during the feast of tabernacles.
