The new Life Transformed series of Bible studies reflects our belief that the Bible is God’s word, and that when we read it, God works through it to change us. Through the Bible, we encounter God, and hear Him speak into our lives. And if we are willing to listen and respond, then transformation is always the result.
The ‘I AM’ sayings of Jesus
Talk the Word Study
The ‘I am’ statements that Jesus’ makes in John’s gospel are amongst the best known and loved verses within the whole Bible. On seven occasions in John’s gospel, Jesus uses the phrase ‘I am’ to explain who He is, why He came, and what He offers to those who choose to follow Him.
This method of study is called Lectio Divina.
‘Lectio’ helps to create space to hear God in a noisy and busy world and can be practiced either as a group or individually. It involves taking time and space to repeatedly read and mediate on God’s Word, praying to God and contemplating His presence.
May the words of Jesus’ ‘I AM’ declarations transform us as we read and reflect on them.
