Glimpses of grace seen in the everyday

The Questions of John

The other day I started reading the gospel of John again.  A major theme of the book  is “Who is Jesus?”  (Related questions asked repeatedly by the people around him were “Where did he come from?” and “Where is he going?”)

In the first chapter alone, I find the following first-hand testimonies about Jesus’ identity:

The Word, God, Creator, Light, Father-revealer—v. 1-18, spoken by the narrator

The Pre-existing One—v. 15, spoken by John the Baptist

The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!—v. 29, spoken by John the Baptist

The Messiah—v. 41, spoken by Andrew after spending a day with Jesus Smile

The One that Moses wrote about—v. 45, spoken by Philip after his first time with Jesus

The Son of God, King of Israel—v. 49, spoken by Nathanael when meeting Jesus

There is LOTS more in this book about who Jesus is.  This is just a teaser to get you started digging and listing—and worshipping at the feet of the One who is perfect Man and complete God, who meets all our needs in every way.
