Two Witnesses to Christ

Verses 12 through 20 of John 8 are their own section, beginning with Christ’s great claim to be the light of the world, and the Pharisees’ opposition to that claim.  They argued that because He only bore witness of Himself there was no reason for them to accept it.  In the two verses covered in this sermon, Christ shows that there are indeed two witnesses, Himself, the Son of God, and His heavenly Father.  If two earthly witnesses can confirm a fact in a court of law, then how much more ought we to believe the testimony of the Father and the Son concerning Christ!  This argument ought not only to have convinced the Pharisees, it ought to convince everyone who ever comes to consider whether Jesus truly is the light of the world.
