Jesus 101 - Part 1

September 23, 2012 Speaker: Ken Ramey Series: Believe & Live

Topic: Gospel of John Passage: John 1:1–1:18

John 1:1-18

In the first eighteen verses of his gospel. John provided a basic introduction to who Jesus is and why He came to earth and what our response to Him should and shouldn't be. There are EIGHT TRUTHS about Jesus are repeated again and again throughout John's gospel:

1. Origination - Jesus has always existed (vv. 1-2)

2. Creation - Jesus created everything (v. 3)

3. Illumination - Jesus illuminated the darkness (vv. 4-5)

4. Attestation - Jesus was confirmed by John (vv. 6-8)

5. Rejection - He was rejected by His own (vv. 9-11)

6. Regeneration - He granted salvation to many (vv. 12-13)

7. Incarnation - He embodied God (vv. 14-17)

8. Explanation - He explained God (v. 18)

Thank God for sending His Son to pierce the darkness in your life; to give you meaning and purpose for your life and to guide and direct your life. Pray that God will use our study of the Gospel of john to help others see the light of the gospel in the glorious face of Christ (cf. 2 Corinthians 4:3-6).
