Lent Bible Study "I AM"

February 14, 2013

 In John’s Gospel, Jesus Christ said no less than seven times the sacred words, “I AM.” With a theological association with the name of God first reveled to Moses at the burning bush, the claim of “I AM” was both powerful and scandalous. Jesus was doing far more than revealing his identity. Jesus was disclosing his divinity!

For the season of Lent, our Thursday Evening Bible Studies will focus on the seven “I AM” statements of Jesus Christ. Beginning on Thursday, February 14, 2013 the study will focus on Jesus’ statement, “I AM the Bread of Life.” 5:30 PM, in the Friendship room of the church.

Thursday, February 21, “I AM the Light of the World”

Thursday, February 28, “I AM the Good Shepherd & the Gate”

Thursday, March 7, “I AM the Resurrection and the Life”

Thursday, March 14, “I AM the Way, Truth and Life”

Thursday, March 21, “I AM the True Vine”

Thursday, March 28 Will be our special Maundy Thursday celebration. This year the First Christian Church is combining with Grace Episcopal and St. Peter Lutheran, and First Presbyterian for a special combined Maundy Thursday service of worship, music, and Communion.
