As we celebrate Easter I believe it would be a good time to read the Book of John. In this Gospel, the author, who was one of the apostles, discusses the ministry of Jesus. John starts with the baptism of Jesus by John the Baptist who recognized that Jesus was the Son of God. In the chapters that followed John describes seven of the many miracles performed by Jesus. These miracles demonstrate the awesome authority and power of God. Jesus also has seven statements in John that describe exactly who He is. In that regard, Jesus said:
• I am the Bread of Life (John 6:35).
• I am the light of the world (John 8:12).
• I am the gate (John 10:9).
• I am the good shepherd (John 10:11).
• I am resurrection and the life (John 11:25).
• I am the way, and the truth, and the life (John 14:6).
• I am the true vine, and my Father is the vine grower (John 15:1).
I suggest that you read the entire Gospel of John and pay special attention to the complete picture as laid out by the verses mentioned above. It would be well to wind up your reading of John on Good Friday by going to Chapters 19, 20 and 21. The account there by John will not only lift your spirits, but it will encourage you to spread the Gospel message and let all know that Jesus has indeed risen.
