The God We Can Know

The God We Can Know: Exploring the “I Am” Sayings of Jesus

The God We Can Know is a seven week small group study designed to explore the “I am” sayings of Jesus found in the Gospel of John. This series will help us find and form an answer to the most essential question in the Christian faith, “Who do you say I am?” One by one, Jesus’ statements grab our imagination, reveal more about his identity and purpose, and connect us to the God of Moses, who spoke the first “I Am.” These significant, yet ordinary images (bread, light, shepherd, vine, and more) give us insightful ways to experience Jesus and point us to a God who wants to be known.

The DVD, filmed on location in the Holy Land, allows us to travel with Rob Fuquay, Senior Pastor of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, and actually see the places where Jesus stood while disclosing his true identity, and in what context he spoke each “I Am.” We’ll journey from the Judean wilderness to the Galilean hills and into the heart of Jerusalem.
