 John 8:14

King James Version

14 Jesus answered and said unto them, 

Though I bear record of myself, 

yet my record is true: 

for I know whence I came, and whither I go; 

but ye cannot tell whence I come, 

and whither I go.

JESUS is GOD's Emissary.

Emissary is like a diplomat, a representative, a messenger.

Someone who is sent, in behalf of another.

My delight is in giving you proof.

First, the post, and verse that inspired this 98th blog:

Mark 12:6

King James Version

6 Having yet therefore one son, 

his wellbeloved, 

he sent him also last unto them, 


They will reverence my son.


JESUS was sent by GOD.

These verses, in JESUS' own words, attest to it:

John 8:15-16

King James Version

15 Ye judge after the flesh; I judge no man.

16 And yet if I judge, my judgment is true: 

for I am not alone, 

but I and the Father that sent me.

John 8:17-18

King James Version

17 It is also written in your law, 

that the testimony of two men is true.

18 I am one that bear witness of myself, 

and the Father that sent me 

beareth witness of me.

John 8:26-27

King James Version

26 I have many things to say 

and to judge of you: 

but he that sent me is true; 

and I speak to the world those things 

which I have heard of him.

27 They understood not 

that he spake to them of the Father.

John 8:29-30

King James Version

29 And he that sent me is with me: 

the Father hath not left me alone; 

for I do always those things that please him.

30 As he spake these words, 

many believed on him.

John 8:42

King James Version

42 Jesus said unto them, 

If God were your Father, ye would love me: 

for I proceeded forth and came from God; 

neither came I of myself, but he sent me.

John 17:3

King James Version

3 And this is life eternal, 

that they might know thee the only true God, 

and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.

John 17:8

King James Version

8 For I have given unto them the words 

which thou gavest me; 

and they have received them, 

and have known surely that I came out from thee, 

and they have believed that thou 

didst send me.

John 17:18

King James Version

18 As thou hast sent me into the world, 

even so have I also sent them into the world.

John 17:20-21

King James Version

20 Neither pray I for these alone, 

but for them also which shall believe on me 

through their word;

21 That they all may be one; 

as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, 

that they also may be one in us: 

that the world may believe 

that thou hast sent me.

John 17:22-23

King James Version

22 And the glory which thou gavest me 

I have given them; 

that they may be one, even as we are one:

23 I in them, and thou in me, 

that they may be made perfect in one; 

and that the world may know 

that thou hast sent me, 

and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

John 17:25-26

King James Version

25 O righteous Father, 

the world hath not known thee: 

but I have known thee, 

and these have known that thou hast sent me.

26 And I have declared unto them thy name, 

and will declare it: 

that the love wherewith thou hast loved me 

may be in them, and I in them.

Do you believe these to be true?

If so, you are of GOD:

John 8:47

King James Version

47 He that is of God heareth God's words: 

ye therefore hear them not, 

because ye are not of God.

And you are of the LORD's sheep:

John 10:27-28

King James Version

27 My sheep hear my voice, 

and I know them, and they follow me:

28 And I give unto them eternal life; 

and they shall never perish, 

neither shall any man pluck them 

out of my hand.

The next post tells us the danger, and difficulties of being Emissary.
