The Jesus of John

April 23, 2023 Preacher: Trent Henderson Series: Gospel of John

Scripture: John 1:5–18

John 1:5-14

God Incarnate

  • Pure Spirit became human
  • Became human to save humanity (Heb 2:17-18)

Perfect Son

  • He tabernacled among us
  • Sinless Son among the suffering and sinful

Historical Figure

  • Before Christianity is personal, it is historical
  • Allows us to anticipate how God will move based on how He has moved

Crucified and Risen

  • Glory of Jesus was His crucifixion and resurrection (John 12:16, John 12:23)
  • Only one who can carry this mission redemptively

Full of Grace and Truth

  • Not one or the other - both
  • You can discern which way you lean by listening to the part you feel the need to emphasize

John 1:15


  • Based on his personhood, not my opinion
  • I will willingly surrender or finally submit

John 1:16-17

Giver of Grace

  • Will I ever not need it? NEVER
  • Why don't I just keep sinning? (Titus 2:11-14)

John 1:18


  • The God of the Universe wants to be known
  • His greatest delight is in relationship with us (John 17:3)
