The Good News

Lesson Twenty – Four

Healing of the Lame Man
Jesus Called a Blasphemer

John 5:1-47

1. Research: John 5:1 says, “Jesus went up to Jerusalem.” On the map Jesus went from Galilee, in the North, to Jerusalem, in the South. Why does the Bible say Jesus went “up” to Jerusalem? Use a Bible Dictionary or Almanac to help you.

2. Who was waiting at the Pool of Bethesda and for what were they waiting? (Jn. 5:3-4)

3. Jesus spoke to one man in particular. How long had this man been ill? (Jn. 5:5)

4. What did Jesus ask the man? (Jn. 5:6)

5. What did Jesus tell him to do? (Jn. 5:8)

6. How long did it take for the healing to happen? (Jn. 5:9)

7. A wonderful thing has happened, a man lame and ill for 38 years is made well, how do the Jews react? (Jn. 5:10)

Note: Notice the focus of the Jews inquiry. (Jn. 5:11-13)

8. When they all realize that Jesus has done the healing, what did the Jews do? (Jn. 5:15-16)

9. After Jesus tells them what He is doing, the Jews rejoice and believe in Him. (Jn. 5:17,18) TRUE or FALSE

10. Read John 5:19-29. Explain the relationship between the Father and the Son that Jesus describes here.


11. List all of the witnesses of Christ. (Jn. 5:30-47)

12. How did Jesus know that these people did not have the love of God in them? (Jn. 5:42-47)


Something to think about: If Jesus did not sin (1 Pet. 2:22; 2 Cor. 5:21), then we KNOW He was NOT a blasphemer, as the Jews accused Him in this story. This means that we also KNOW that Jesus was EQUAL with GOD, even while here on Earth. (Jn. 5:18; Phil.2:6)
