Jesus described himself throughout John's gospel using a series of very pointed "I AM" statements: I am the light, I am the shepherd, I am the vine... In other words, Jesus had a strong sense of self-identity: he knew who he was. Everyone has a different idea about who Jesus is. But who did Jesus say He was? We are going to look at these statements over the next several weeks, but before we can really evaluate these statements of Jesus, we have to wonder: can we believe that Jesus said these things (or that he meant them)? In other words, we have to wrestle with our doubts and objections. Today we being a five week series examining these famous I am statements by accepting Jesus' invitation to"Come and See."
