I Am The Way

Sermon Handout When Jesus asked His disciples, “Who do people say that I am,” He received a variety of responses, none of which were correct (Mark 8:27-28). When He asked His disciples, “Who do you say that I am,” Peter responded correctly, saying, “You are the Christ” (Mark 8:29). If posed this same question, how would you answer, and what would be the basis for your response? Let’s revisit the identity of Jesus by asking, “who did Jesus say He…

I Am The Bread

After feeding the 5000 physically, Jesus fed them spiritually by presenting the “bread of life” discourse. In this teaching, Jesus referred to Himself as “the bread of heaven” four times (John 6:32, 41, 50, 58), “the bread of life” two times (John 6:35, 48), and the “bread of God” (John 6:33) as well as the “living bread” (John 6:51) each one time. Why did Jesus associate His identity with bread? Sermon Handout 35 Jesus said to them, “I am the bread…

The Great I AM

Go Into All the World

Before Jesus returned to heaven, He gave an assignment to His followers. We often refer to it as the Great Commission. The first word in Matthew’s account of the Great Commission is a single imperative, “Go” (28:19). Mark provided a little more information when he wrote, “Go into all the world” (16:15). In Jesus’ last words, He instructed His disciples to infiltrate the world but to what end? We’ve already noted in previous lessons that Jesus expects us to distinguish…

The Lion King

THE LION KING Why is Jesus called the “Lion of Judah,” and what are some of the implications of having Him as our King? What have been some of the responses to His position within Scripture? What about now? How do people typically/historically respond to the idea of having a “king?” – Rev. 5:5; John 18:37 “ANIMAL KINGDOM: DO YOU WANT TO LEAVE THE ZOO?” This was the BYG Summer Series on Wednesday nights during 2017. Lessons are presented by…

Not of This World

As He was being questioned by Pilate, Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world” (John 18:36). By saying this, Jesus made a clear distinction between the world and His kingdom. Previously we learned that God loves the whole world but that doesn’t mean that God saves the whole world. Thus, Jesus’ statement reveals the distinction between the world and the saved because Jesus clearly taught that the world is not automatically placed in the kingdom but people have…

For God So Loved the World

The next aspect of the kingdom we seek to understand is its territory. Scripture is quite clear regarding the extent of God’s sovereignty. God’s sovereignty includes the whole world (Psalm 24:1; 89:11) but His territory is “not of this world” (John 18:36). Before we explore the distinction between the “kingdom” and the “world” we must acknowledge that God made His kingdom available and accessible to the whole world because he loved the world. Sermon Handout JOHN 3:16-21 16 “For God so loved the…

I am a Friend

It may be difficult for us to wrap our minds around the concept that we can be called “Friends of God.” That description may sound a little too casual or irreverent. But that is exactly the title Jesus gave to us in John 15:14 when He said, “You are my friends if you do what I command you.” In fact, Jesus supplemented our identity as God’s “servants” with our identity as God’s “friends” (John 15:15). Based on our identity as…
