When Jesus spoke people did listen but they did not understand what He was saying. Jesus spoke mostly in parables. His words can not be interpret at face value, they had a greater and deeper meaning. The guidance of the Holy Spirit is LIFE unto God. When Jesus said that He came to give life, He was referring to reuniting His lost sheep with the Holy Spirit in the heart so believers may live unto God and not self. Living unto self is the great lie of life satan established without the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Jesus came to deliver believers from the bondage of living in the great lie of life. Those living in the great lie of life are dead to life and Jesus came to give life.
