Tomorrow in America we celebrate the life of Martin Luther King Jr. and in fact all civil rights leaders. His and their theme was equality and freedom for all men. The Bible tells us that the only TRUE way for a man to be free is to be made so by Christ. It is the duty of Christians to pray for the lost of this world.
Chapter CONTEXT from MHCC: In this chapter we have, I. Christ’s evading the snare which the Jews laid for him, in bringing to him a woman taken in adultery (v. 1-11). II. Divers discourses or conferences of his with the Jews that cavilled at him, and sought occasion against him, and made every thing he said a matter of controversy. 1. Concerning his being the light of the world (v. 12-20). 2. Concerning the ruin of the unbelieving Jews (v. 21-30). 3. Concerning liberty and bondage (v. 31-37). 4. Concerning his Father and their father (v. 38-47). 5. Here is his discourse in answer to their blasphemous reproaches (v. 48-50). 6. Concerning the immortality of believers (v. 51-59). And in all this he endured the contradiction of sinners against himself.
