Sermon: “What Does Jesus mean by, ‘I am…'”
Theme: Jesus speaks to us of drawing our strength and our source of meaning from him alone, rather than demanding conformity or other obligations.
Purpose: To understand the purpose of Jesus’ statements about himself.
Scriptures: 1 Kings 19:4-8 Elijah depressed after his conflict with the Prophets of Baal and the king and queen.
John 6:35, 41-51 Jesus says, “I am the Bread of Life.”
Questions: What does Jesus mean when he says “I am the bread of life?” In what ways is Jesus meaning to be exclusive of others paths of faith? In what ways is Jesus instructing us to depend upon him? How should we interact with other faiths? When Elijah battled the prophets of Baal was this a theological difference or something else? What difference does it make when some believe differently from ourselves?
