Passages: John 5-11
Big Idea: Jesus is God’s way to God.
Twelve lessons exploring John chapters 5-11.
The middle section of John’s gospel is full of complex truths that at their heart want to draw our attention to who Jesus is and the right response to him in light of this knowledge.
Throughout this middle section of John’s gospel, Jesus speaks of his relationship with God, his Father. Jesus says that God the Father is his own Father, that he has come from God, that his Father loves him and has entrusted his work to him, and handed over all judgement to him. The Jews realise that Jesus is claiming to be God and from that moment on seek to kill him. Which would be the right response if it were not true. But John is clear. Jesus is God’s way to God. You cannot worship God, the Father unless you worship Jesus, the Son.
