Some time later, Jesus went up to Jerusalem for one of the Jewish festivals. John 5:1 NIV
John does not allude to the time of year nor to the particular feast in question. Why so much concern about it? Most would like to know that they might know at about what point in Christ’s ministry this miracle occurred.
What can we learn from this? Often much which we question or concern ourselves with is of little matter. We are so focused on time. Why don’t we just put more of our focus on our Lord and His healing ways. Time is of no essence in eternity. Let us focus on what is truly important in our lives, that being following the Lord and living by His word!
