Questions For Deeper Study:
1. Why do you think John wants to make it so clear that Jesus is God?
2. What mysteries do you wrestle with when it comes to Jesus identity?
3. How many books of the bible mention or allude to Jesus?
4. Why is it important that the Canon of scripture be closed and Jesus be God's "final Word".
1. Throughout the bible, Jesus is described as Lord, Savior, Friend, Suffering Servant, The beginning, The End, Creator, Eternal, The Messiah etc. How do you balance these so that your relationship with Him is right? (Example: How do you balance Him being Lord and at the same time friend?)
2. How do you describe the Trinity?
3. What makes you confident that Jesus is "Supreme" in your life?
Prayer and Encouragement:
Since this is the apparent final online sermon without meeting in person, share how you've grown during this time. How have you thrived? How have you struggled? Pray for one another based upon the answers.
