Bible Study on the I Am Statements

This free 4-part Bible study on the I Am statements of Jesus will help your students learn about Jesus in His own words.

Part 1: The Good Shepherd

Who is Jesus? I know it seems like a simple question at first, but can you imagine all the ways to answer that? He was a carpenter. He was a rabbi. He was divine. His birth changed the world calendar from BC to AD. There are so many ways to describe Jesus, so let’s go right to the source. Over the next four weeks, we will journey through the Gospel of John to learn about Jesus in His own words. In our first session, we will explore what it means when Jesus says that He is our “Good Shepherd.”

Scripture: John 15:5-8; Galatians 5:22-23

Part 2: The Resurrection

When exploring the “I AM” statements of Jesus, a clear theme emerges. Jesus is so much more than a wise teacher or thoughtful rabbi. Jesus is God. He is a supernatural miracle worker who saves us. This truth is especially evident in the next “I AM” statement we will study together. It takes place during a story of Jesus and three of his closest friends — Mary, Martha, and Lazarus. There is only a small problem. One of them is dead.

Scripture: John 11:17-19; 23-26; 43-44; John 10:10

Part 3: The Way, the Truth, and the Life

As the inventor of our brains, Jesus understands that every human is on a mission. We’re on a mission to discover meaning, discern direction, and develop a life worth living. Jesus knows that we are all looking for something, which is why our next “I AM” statement is so practical. When Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life,” He was saying that He is our route, our reality, and our reason for living.

Scripture: John 14:5-7

Part 4: The Vine

Throughout this study, we have learned that Jesus protects us, guides us, rescues us, and gives us meaning. As we close our study, we will see that Jesus calls himself a vine. Yes, you heard that right: Jesus called himself a plant. What does this have to do with you? It’s actually marvelous. As the vine, Jesus consistently grants you energy, stamina, and growth.

Scripture: John 15:5-8; Galatians 5:22-23
