A Paternity Test

Reading: John 8: 31 - 47
 
If you missed it, here's a link to the Sermon: A Paternity Test?  
  1. Verse 48 starts with a barrage of abuse from the Pharisees. Why the rudeness and what exactly do the Pharisees mean by what they say?
  2. Verse 49 is written to carry serious force (truly, truly or amen amen), discuss the condition to having eternal life.
  3. Verse 56: how did Abraham see Jesus coming (Gen 14 perhaps?)?
  4. Verse 58: what is Jesus claiming, what does I AM mean and when was it first used of God to describe Himself?
  5. In the sermon we suggested a paternity test - how might you test your spiritual paternity?
