A Bear of Very Little Brain                                                            

Sometimes I feel like Winnie the Pooh - a bear of very little brain.

I know that Jesus is God in the flesh and that He is the Son of God at the same time. It's just that I have hard time understanding it.  Jesus does what the Father does and the Father does what Jesus does, yet at times they have different jobs. They are the same, yet different (John 5:17-30).

I understand that the Jews understood what Jesus was saying in this passage and they wanted to carry out their Law to punish blasphemy by putting Jesus to death. They didn't believe Jesus was God.

I think God put the concept of the Father and Jesus in terms we could grasp the best. We understand the relationship between a Father and Son.  The Son has characteristics of the Father in appearance, mannerisms, speech patterns and the way they think. As a boy grows up, he emulates his father. They are very much the same, yet different.  This helps me - a bear of very little brain - understand this a bit.

"Then answered Jesus and said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, The Son can do nothing of himself, but what he seeth the Father do: for what things soever he doeth, these also doeth the Son likewise." John 5:19.
