The Apostle John wrote the
gospel of St. John, in the New Testament, in order to
make it very clear
what Jesus claimed and who He claimed to be.
His purpose was to persuade us of the deity of Jesus,
the Savior of the world. God so loved us that He became
man and demonstrated His incomparable love (chapter 3)
so that whoever would believe in Jesus could have
eternal life. John wrote that Jesus was not only the
Word speaking creation, in the beginning, but that Jesus
was and is God here and now.
The most important questions
ever asked were, "Who is Jesus? Why did Jesus come? Why
did Jesus have to die? and Why do we need Him?"
READ John's gospel to find the answers to these
questions. Jesus didn't just say that He was a god, or a
way, that He taught the truth, or demonstrated life
better than anyone else. Jesus said,
the bread of life - who sustains you (chapter 6)
I AM the light of the world - who enlightens you (8
I AM the door for the sheep - who protects you (10)
I AM the good shepherd - who guides you (10)
I AM the resurrection and the life - who gives you
eternal life (11)
I AM the way, the truth and the life - the way to
Myself, God (14)
I AM the true vine - the source of all fruitfulness
just come to be an example of how to perform better or
to teach us to do right; He
said I AM the way, the truth and the life! On
the cross, He demonstrated His love and His authority
over nature, disease and death itself. That's what I
want! I choose to follow the only one claimed to be life
and who is still alive!
I would choose Jesus even if there
were another way, because I want to be
forgiven, to be loved and accepted unconditionally, to
be healed and to have eternal life. Eternal life is a
new past and a new future. I can't earn my way with
perfect behavior, no matter how many chances I am given.
Jesus came to offer us life, died in our place and
demonstrated that He has conquered death for us.
Jesus demonstrated His
divinity, love and power, over and over,
because He wants to be in relationship with us. He
changed water into wine (2), healed a man's son (4),
healed a lame man (5), fed the 5,000 miraculously (6),
walked on water (6), healed a blind man (9), and raised
Lazarus from the dead (11) etc. etc.
People understood who Jesus was
claiming to be. That's why He was accused and
tried for claiming to be God. He didn't deny it because
He was/is God. Many testified that Jesus was God: John
the Baptist, Andrew, Nathaniel (1), the blind man (9),
Martha (11), and even doubting Thomas (20). Peter said,
"You are the Christ ... ." Even the Samaritans, who
cared nothing for Jews, also agreed that Jesus is the
Messiah (4). A Roman soldier, at the cross, said,
"Surely this was the Messiah!" Jesus was and is the
Savior of the world (4, 11, 12).
religions claim to have great leaders, but
we have confidence that Jesus
proved His deity and demonstrated His ability to give us
eternal life. He said the Father is in Him
and He is in the Father (10, 14), He came from God (16),
He was sent by God (6, 11, 17), He is the Son of God (6,
11, 20) and that He and the Father are one (10). He said
if you have seen me, you have seen the Father!
book of 1 John, in the New Testament, our Father God has
assured us that we can be sure who Jesus is, that life
is in Jesus and that we have the life if we have Jesus.
Inviting Jesus to be our Lord
and God guarantees life here and for eternity.
John 5:11-13 And this is the testimony: God has
given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.
12 He who has the Son has life; he who does not have
the Son of God does not have life. 13 I write these
things to you who believe in the name of the Son of
God so that you may know that you have eternal life.
