And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen (John 21:25)
This Scripture concludes the Gospel of John; the fourth Gospel proceeded by Matthew, Mark and Luke. How fitting to end the series of "hands on experience" of the life and ministry of Jesus. But here the conclusion is that there were many other things that Jesus did. In hopes that you or I might grasp what he is saying; the author goes on to paint this picture, "I suppose the world could not contain the books written."
Can you think of any subject matter in all your experiences that could receive this credential? The apostle John is saying here that Jesus never stopped being Jesus. All that has been written in the Gospels about him barely scratches the surface. Yet, in the Gospels, we can see this man wakened in the middle of the night to screams for help.(Mark 4:38). Exhausted, overworked, and pressed out, he is jolted with these screams of panicked men. How does Jesus respond? With anger, correction or being disorientated? His response, "peace, be still." (Mark 4:39). With their own eyes, they did see their troubles vanish!
He fed his lambs, he bathed his sheep and he opens heaven for all that seek him. He never limits your unlimited God. Praise the Lord!
