Jesus posed that question to his disciples mid-way through his ministry (See Matthew 16). The answers? Some people said he was Elijah, some said John the Baptist. Others thought that Jesus was Jeremiah or another of the Old Testament prophets returned to minister to the people. But who did Jesus believe himself to be?

That question is answered in different ways in different places. But at the heart of Jesus' self-revelation are seven statements in the Gospel of John. These self-disclosures have come to be called "The I Ams" of Jesus.

This holiday season, we will explore the rich and ancient biblical and theological themes within each of these words. In thinking carefully about Jesus' self-understanding, we will better understand what it means to identify Jesus as Lord and Leader in our lives.

Join us every Sunday morning at 9:30 AM, either on campus or online, for Jesus Is: The Seven I Am Statements inJohn.
