Bible: John 12:37-41
The Outcome of Jesus’ Public Ministry Foretold
12:37 Although Jesus 1 had performed 2 so many miraculous signs before them, they still refused to believe in him, 12:38 so that the word 3 of Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled. He said, 4 “Lord, who has believed our message, and to whom has the arm of the Lord 5 been revealed?” 6 12:39 For this reason they could not believe, 7 because again Isaiah said,
12:40 “He has blinded their eyes
and hardened their heart, 8
so that they would not see with their eyes
and understand with their heart, 9
12:41 Isaiah said these things because he saw Christ’s 12 glory, and spoke about him.
