Gospel of John Bible Study
Painting the Portrait of Jesus: The "I Am" Word Pictures Revealing the Jesus We Follow
(Short and easy for anyone new to the Bible)
One of the most asked questions of all time is this, "What did Jesus look like?"
Too bad that Jesus doesn’t have a Facebook page or pics posted on Instagram. Talk about a cool way to get to know Him. Who wouldn't want a portrait of Jesus?
But in the gospel of John, you get something better than even social media posts. You get a look at the self-portrait of Jesus in His own words—His seven “I am” statements. Think of it as an autobiography of Jesus that you can “like,” “friend,” & “follow” as you discover amazing things that He proclaims about Himself. And, what Jesus tells about Himself and the relationship you can enjoy through faith in Him will satisfy the spiritual hunger in your soul. Guaranteed!
