Message from the Pastor
IS JESUS THE SON OF GOD ? - Part 1
Is Jesus really the Son of God ? A question that many skeptics and critics of the Bible will ask.
To answer this very important question, I want us to go to the Word of God and see for ourselves what John the apostle had to say. Not only was he a disciple or a close follower of Christ, but also a very good friend of Jesus.He wrote the gospel, so that people might believe that Jesus Christ is indeed the Son of the living GOD !!!
There was absolute NO hesitation or doubt in the heart of John. In the next few issues of Faith Talk, I want us to observe the findings of John and trust that it will bless your heart and strengthen your faith.
What is it that made the gospel according to John so interesting?
The gospel of John does not form part of what we would call the "Synoptic" gospels which includes Matthew, Mark and Luke. No genealogy of Jesus is recorded, no account of His birth. We don’t read anything about the boyhood of Jesus or the temptations that He faced. No parables in this gospel. No transfiguration or appointing of his disciples.We don’t read anything about the great commission or the ascension.
John had one purpose in mind, and that was to tell the world that Jesus was more than just a good man, a religious leader or a prophet.
John calls SEVEN witnesses to the stand to testify that Jesus is indeed the Son of God !!
Joh 1:34 "And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God" - John the Baptist
Joh 1:49 "....You are the Son of God, You are the King of Israel" - Nathanael
Joh 6:69 "You are the Christ, the Son of the living God" - Peter
Joh 11:27 "Yes Lord, I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God" - Martha
Joh 20:28 "My Lord and my God!" - Thomas
Joh 20:31 "Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God" - John the author of the gospel
Joh 10:36 "I am the Son of God" - Jesus about Himself
Praise God for His precious Word !! Next month we will explore the gospel of John further to help us understand and deal with this important question !
