New Testament

John's Gospel


A characteristic of John’s gospel is the proclamation of Jesus as the incarnate Son of God. From its magnificent prologue whose opening words match the opening words of the Pentateuch, to its concluding words urging faith in Jesus as the Christ, the Son of God, the Gospel of John has as its central focus the revelation that in Christ, the Maker of the Universe, YHWH, the great ‘I Am’ takes flesh and lives among us.

One of the ways in which this conviction is expressed in the Gospel is through an extraordinary series of claims made by Jesus, all of which reveal different aspects of the divine reality and the relationship of that divine reality to human beings.

I AM the Living Bread
I AM the Light of the World
I AM the Good Shepherd
I AM the Way
I AM the True Vine
I AM the Resurrection and the Life
                        before Abraham was, I AM
