- The first one is- where did Jesus go to school? (v.15). In other words, how has this man become learned having never been educated? So Jesus answers them- heaven. He says His teaching is not Mine but His who sent Me. (v.16) He says I picked it up from another source, not an earthly source.
The second question they’re going to ask Him in verses 25-27 is, where did You come from? Is not this the man whom they are seeking to kill? Look! He’s speaking publicly and they’re saying nothing to Him. However, we know where this man is from; but whenever the Christ may come, no one knows where He is from. Jesus says, actually, I’ve come forth from God and so He cries out and says, I know where I’ve come from and I have not come of Myself but He who sent Me. (v.28) So again His answer to the question- Where do you come from? – Is answered.
The third question, as we’ll see, is in verse 35 where these people are going to be saying- where is He going? When He said, where I am, you cannot come- they wondered where is He going to be going? His answer is going to be the same answer He gave before. It’s going to be in heaven. He does not fit their categories at all. They ask these questions and they cannot really grasp fully what He’s talking about.
