See and Believe

The theme in this section of the gospel text is of the replacement of the OT feasts. Jesus presents himself as the true Light of the World, the spring of Living Water, the Good Shepherd. The jews cannot easily understand this and are divided in their opinion about him. At the festival of Dedication, the jews are pushing him to confirm if he was the Messiah and Jesus confirms that all his works are a testimony to the fact that ‘he and the Father are one’.
