Jesus' "I Am" Statements
In the gospel of John, Jesus offers eight word pictures to help understand his identity. These names Jesus chose for himself throughout his ministry matter because they connect him to God. They demonstrate both the eternal and the personal nature of God, all the while inviting us into relationship with Him. In this Groundwork series we study Jesus eight “I AM” statements in the biblical book of John to discover the facets of God Jesus shares with us, understand the parallels these statements have in the Old Testament, and discuss what these identity statements continue to mean for us and our relationship with God today.
