This passage from the Gospel of John refers to the primary reason that Jesus was persecuted and killed at the end of his time on earth. This reason according to the Gospel of John was blasphemy. The Jewish people accused Jesus of making himself God, or equal with God, when in their opinion it was not possible that he was one. They were not able to accept the fact that he might actually be the son of God and believe in him based off of all of the works that he had done. As part of the readings in this season of Lent, this Gospel is important to begin to emphasize the reasons given by the Jewish people for Jesus’ death.
