Current Sermon Series: The “I Am” Sayings of Jesus
Continuing in John 10, Jesus goes on in his dialogue with the Pharisees and says that He is the Good Shepherd.
As Jesus continues to reveal to us who he is, he explains more about the nature of the Kingdom of Heaven and his role within it. What does it mean that Jesus is “the door,” and how could such an obscure reference or metaphor be applicable for us today?
As we dig more into the “I Am” sayings of Jesus, we come face to face with just how absurd some of these sayings are. Jesus says he is the “Light of the World.” What does that even mean? How does that help us understand more about who he is, and how is that applicable for us today?
Jesus is regarding by almost everyone as one of the most fascinating persons in human history. So, who was he? Was he a good moral rabbi, a political rebel, or something more? Fortunately, in the Gospel of John there are 8 times when Jesus tells us who he is! This week, we discover who he is telling us he is when he said, “I Am the Bread of Life.”
In our last look at the book of Joshua, we explore how it ends, asking “what can we learn from unhappy or unresolved endings?”
We recently looked at God as our Divine Warrior in our series through Joshua. Here, Joel Hylton looks more closely at that topic in the Gospel of Luke, examining the nature and character of Jesus as our Divine Warrior.
