ST. JOHN 7, VERSES 16 - 19.
16 Jesus answered them, and said, My doctrine is not mine,
but his that sent me. 17 If any man will do his will, he shall
know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I
speak of myself. 18 He that speaketh of himself seeketh
his own glory: but he that seeketh his glory that sent him,
the same is true, and no unrighteousness is in him. 19 Did
not Moses give you the law, and yet none of you keepeth
the law? Why go ye about to kill me?
The word of Jesus (Ppuh) is not false.
Jesus (Ppuh) did not teach his own knowledge, but the knowledge
of God who sent him. If anyone determines to do the will
of God, he will be able to know if Jesus (Ppuh) was falsely teaching
his own knowledge without being sent by God, or, if he was
truthfully teaching the knowledge of God who sent him.
The one, that falsely speaks his own ideas without being
sent by God, seeks his own glory. But the one that seeks
the glory of God; and not his own, is truthful.
The word of Jesus Christ (Ppuh) is truthful.
ST. JOHN 8, VERSES 39 & 40
39 They answered and said unto him, Abraham is our father.
Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye
would do the works of Abraham. 40 But now ye seek to kill
me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard
of God: this did not Abraham.
Jesus (Ppuh) did not speak his own knowledge falsely, but the
truth, which he had heard from God, the one who sent him.
What God told Jesus (Ppuh), Jesus (Ppuh) told to the people.
ST. JOHN 5, VERSE 30
I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and
my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but
the will of the Father which hath sent me.
ST. JOHN 8, VERSE 50
And I seek not mine own glory: there is one that seeketh
ST. MATHEW 6, VERSES 9 - 13
9 After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art
in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. 10 Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this
day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, as we
forgive our debtors. 13 And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the
power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
ST. MATHEW 26, VERSE 39
And he went a little farther, and fell on his face, and prayed,
saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from
me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
Jesus (Ppuh) couldn't do anything of his own volition. Only when
he heard the words from God, he passed them on; he did
not seek his own will, but the will of God who sent him;
Jesus (Ppuh) sought not his own glory, but the glory of God who
Jesus Christ (Ppuh) is truthful, but the Jews refused to accept and
believe in. They do not do the will of God, and they do not
keep God's law, which was given to them previously by
Moses (Ppuh). Their sins blinded them from seeing that Jesus (Ppuh) is
the Christ sent to them from God with the truth, and so
they wanted to kill him.
But for the Jews to kill the truthful Christ by crucifying him,
they needed to arrest him first. Being unable to arrest him;
crucifying him, would therefore be impossible.
Were the Jews able to arrest Jesus (Ppuh)? And did they?

To understand exactly what happened during the crucifixion event, we need to study the events that led to it, and what Jesus Christ (Ppuh) taught and told about it, starting with Jesus' (Ppuh) word and the source of his words and knowledge.
Did Jesus (Ppuh) teach his own knowledge and views on future events, or was he taught this knowledge and these future prophesies by God, then was commanded to teach them to the people, as he heard them?
