John ch 14 v17
I will pray the father and he shall give you another Comforter , that he may abide with you for ever . 17 even the spirit of truth whom the world can not receive, because it seeketh him not , neither know with him :
These verses reveal a lot of Truth !
But with out the Spirit of truth you will not see it .

Christ is the the great I Am, He is forever present. He created the world, and all that is in it. Even though Christ created the people and the world, the people he created rejected him. Those who rejected him and refused to recognize the light were unbelievers living in darkness. They knew of His coming it had been pointed to them by those God had chosen to prepare the people for the coming Messiah. The coming of the Messiah had been pointed to throughout the Old Testiment by those who God had chosen (His own) to prepare the rest of the world for the coming Messiah they too rejected Him. (John 1:11 His own).

For us as Christians what must we do as a testimony that we have known and accepted Him

(his own)in john 1v11 refers to all creation.He (Jesus)came to the world that is His result.He came to the world that He made and the world could not recognise Him.The visible world was made by Him and did not know its Maker.

John 1:11 He came to the things which were his and his people did not take him to their hearts. We want GOD to be with us but we do not want him in our Hearts and the control of a man is in the heart. we want to do things in the way we like\want forgetting that we will say LORD LORD and he will say I don't know you.

The OT tells us that God claimed the Hebrews as his own people.
Ergo 'his own' - the Hebrews

His own means all the nation remember he is the maker of all things
Skylar Sinclair's comment on 2013-07-05 10:05:40:
I take it that "His own" is talking either about those who had been saved in that that had received Jesus Christ into their hearts...OR... that perhaps His "blood" family rejected him. Either way I can certainly relate because our two sons have rejected us and we have no earthly idea why. Rejection is one of the most painful things on earth especially when it's "your own".

here (his own) refers to creation(MAN) not jews. Jesus was rejected by (ALL)not just the jews only
