John2, RN101, 4/9 I Introduction From John’s Prologue (1:1-18), “It is God the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart, who has made [God] known” The Word descends from God—the Word who was with God, who was God—in order to make God known; Before God was known through “the law given to Moses” (1:17); now this knowledge comes through a person. Who? According to John the Baptist, it is Jesus: “This is the Son of God … here is the Lamb of God!” (Jesus will be crucified in John’s Gospel on the night BEFORE the Passover, i.e. crucified when the Passover lambs were sacrificed on the eve of the feast). II After John the Baptist’s affirmation, the revelation of who Jesus is takes place in different ways: A. Through a series of self-revelations—John’s Jesus is very often speaking about himself—especially those which use the formulation, “I am.” In both MK and LK, Jesus uses this phrase 2x; in MATT, 5x, in John 46x! “I am” the bread of life (6: 35, 51)
