The I Am Sayings of Jesus, Part 4 - I Am the Resurrection

Passage:John 11:17-45

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Series: The I Am Sayings of Jesus in the Gospel of John

In this fourth part of our Lenten series on the unique "I Am" sayings of Jesus in the Gospel of John, we focus now on the story of Lazarus. Jesus' claim speaks to deep questions of life and death. We shall explore this passage by looking at the man in question (that is, Lazarus and his family), the claim of Jesus itself, and at the reality of the grave. Jesus' claim to be the resurrection and the life reveal both his exclusive nature regarding such things as life, truth, justice, love, etc., and also God's incredible grace to dead sinners (our parallel text today is Ephesians 2:1-10).
