Division Over Who Jesus Is
25 At that point some of the people of Jerusalem began to ask, “Isn’t this the man they are trying to kill? 26 Here he is, speaking publicly, and they are not saying a word to him. Have the authorities really concluded that he is the Messiah? 27 But we know where this man is from-;- when the Messiah comes, no one will know where he is from.”
28 Then Jesus, still teaching in the temple courts, cried out, “Yes, you know me, and you know where I am from. I am not here on my own authority, but he who sent me is true. You do not know him, 29 but I know him because I am from him and he sent me.”
30 At this they tried to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him, because his hour had not yet come. 31 Still, many in the crowd believed in him. They said, “When the Messiah comes, will he perform more signs than this man?”
32 The Pharisees heard the crowd whispering such things about him. Then the chief priests and the Pharisees sent temple guards to arrest him.
33 Jesus said, “I am with you for only a short time, and then I am going to the one who sent me. 34 You will look for me, but you will not find me-;- and where I am, you cannot come.”
35 The Jews said to one another, “Where does this man intend to go that we cannot find him? Will he go where our people live scattered among the Greeks, and teach the Greeks? 36 What did he mean when he said, ‘You will look for me, but you will not find me,’ and ‘Where I am, you cannot come’?”
37 On the last and greatest day of the festival, Jesus stood and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as -script-ure has said, rivers of living water will flow from within them.”[a] 39 By this he meant the Spirit, whom those who believed in him were later to receive. Up to that time the Spirit had not been given, since Jesus had not yet been glorified.
40 On hearing his words, some of the people said, “Surely this man is the Prophet.”
41 Others said, “He is the Messiah.”
Still others asked, “How can the Messiah come from Galilee? 42 Does not -script-ure say that the Messiah will come from David’s descendants and from Bethlehem, the town where David lived?” 43 Thus the people were divided because of Jesus. 44 Some wanted to seize him, but no one laid a hand on him.”
Hence the rhetoric of Jesus the Christ is fundamentally based on the truth coming from the Kingdom of Heaven, from which His Word is impregnated with his own senses since it testifies to the treasure of the Kingdom of Heaven, namely the eyes and the heart enabling him to perceive the Truth well and this divine perception makes the Son of God the incarnation of the Word synonymous with Truth.
Thusly Christ Jesus’ Approach is highly a divine Approach which in contradiction with the utilitarian approach as utilitarianism has been defined philosophically as "a doctrine which makes the useful, that which serves life´-or-happiness, the principle of all values in the realm of knowledge as well as that of action.
Utilitarianism is the system which consists in reducing the notion of the just to that of the useful, and consequently in making interest the principle of law and morality".
Hence this doctrine sows a certain confusion by separating the just from the useful and by making interest a purely economic notion, moreover it is because of similar doctrines that the inhuman notion of sacrifice is born, i.e. the just must be sacrificed for purely economic interest
while there is no contradiction between the ways of divine justice and the interest which is summed up in a quest for happiness which is translated in the life of the righteous by pure love, to love God just as to reach the fulfilled existence which reaches its apogee in the Presence of God and with his Word.
And beyond that, it is hardly an abstract love struck by the somnolence of existence that reaches nothingness, since it stems from a ing imagination seeking to emerge from the state of hypnosis through dreams of a happiness that is summed up in matter and that despises the human being, while this contempt faithfully translates the non-membership of the people, followers of this sectarian doctrine, to the Humanity created and loved by God, and worse, their deep-seated hatred of the human being, which has led them to separate human values from interest, with the sole aim of legitimising the use of crimes to achieve an interest presented as a notion devoid of morality,´-or-even worse, making the use of crimes to realise political stakes, for example, a morality in itself .
This is why the contradiction between this sectarian doctrine and the Word of God illustrates the contradiction between the baseness of the sects and the nobility of Jesus the Christ who speaks the Truth that disturbs the liars and embodies the humanity shaped by his heart that affects the people belonging to the devil given their beastly nature that considers the human a threat to their worldly interests summing up to the obtaining of the objects whatever the path taken, in this case the path of crime, which makes criminals who commit robbery, rape, murder, money laundering, righteous people who have just used means useful to them, employing deception to achieve personal pleasure.
Keeping that in mind, the heritage reserved for the children of God is first of all humanity which is the prerequisite for being able to assimilate to their substance the sagacity allowing them to understand that the love of God: Jesus the Christ is the origin of good and that it is imperative to do good, perceived as a moral value in itself, in order to translate this heritage of humanity which naturally tends to incorporate the value of good into the human substance of the children of God.
Accordingly the presence of Jesus Christ on this earth testifies to the truth of His Word from which it is not a question of a thought which espouses Utopia but of the logic which flows from the wisdom making the human substantially a to be who incorporates values in order to have value given that the criminal, the child of the devil, although it is encouraged in this fallen world, is only an illusory presence which carries in its illusion the seeds of its demolition.
