Read: John 5:1-47
Focus Verse: John 5:18- For this reason they tried all the more to kill him; not only was he breaking the Sabbath, but he was even calling God his own Father, making himself equal with God.

Thoughts:
Jesus shook things up as He did not follow the Sabbath and he claimed to be equal with God. This would bring charges of blasphemy against Him eventually when He is faced Pilate, as claiming to be equal with God violated the idea that there was only one God. The people struggled to see that Jesus was God’s Son.
