Who is Jesus?

featured-nailonboardDid Jesus ever claim to be God? These questions are at the heart of controversy when we seek to find out from people of various religions and cultures about Jesus. Is it possible to view Jesus as just a prophet or a great teacher or even a great moral leader without attaching deity to our understanding? That question cries out to be answered.

Beginning the Sunday after Christmas we will begin a sermon series on the Gospel according to John. As we might expect, the life of Jesus is much more than we could read about in any book. Consequently, each of the gospel writers is selective in the events and teachings of Jesus. While we certainly see some overlap between John and the other gospel writers, there is more unique material in John. John particularly focuses on those events and sayings of Jesus that point both to his deity and his unique role as savior of God’s people.
