The Person of Jesus

Series: Deconstruct | Reconstruct | Week 2: How Can Jesus Be the Only Way?

Read John 10:36-38 in your personal Bible or at the link provided.

1. Who did Jesus say set Him apart and sent Him into the world?
2. What would be the evidence of His claim as the Son of God?
3. What would this cause others to know and understand?

Jesus’ claims as the Son of God caused the religious leaders to threaten to stone Him. Yet Jesus didn’t back down from His claims; He reinforced them, pointing to His miracles as evidence. Some of His recorded miracles include changing water into wine; feeding a crowd of 5,000; healing men, women, and children; casting out evil spirits; stilling a storm; raising Lazarus from the dead; and rising from the dead Himself. And this isn’t even close to the full list.

All world religions have a founder who usually comes in the form of a prophet or teacher. They claim to have a unique truth, but their whole message is, “Listen to me, and follow me to get to God.” They’re human signposts pointing to God.

Jesus is the only One who isn’t claiming to be a prophet. He’s not pointing towards God; He’s saying that He is God. This is a uniquely Christian view. Jesus is truly in a world of His own. He didn’t just change the world, and He didn’t just claim to be God. He did both in the form of one person.

What miracles of Jesus stand out to you or hit close to home? Where have you seen Him work miracles in your own life or in someone else’s life close to you?
Have you ever found yourself following someone who claims to be the way to God? How do their words and actions differ from Jesus’?
What safeguards can you set up to discern truth and follow Jesus as the only way to the Father?

Pray through these questions, and write down what God is prompting you to do next. Share with a friend, and take a step to apply it.
