Fear keeps most people from speaking about Jesus

John Bible Background

05.19.2017 New Testament: John 7.13

To read the Bible in a year, read John 7.1–31 on May 19, In the year of our Lord 2017

By Don Ruhl

People had many opinions about Jesus during His day, yet many people would not speak openly about Him,

However, no one spoke openly of Him for fear of the Jews (John 7.13). 

That summarizes us today. We fear rejection by people. We fear being called weird. We fear many things, and we stay silent about the One we love the most.

Questions:

  • What can you do to overcome your fear?
  • Who taught you the Scriptures? Did he or she have fear?
