Passage: John 1:1-5 | Series: | Topic:

Text: John 1:1-5

Main Idea: As the true Prophet, Jesus Christ shines the light of truth upon darkened hearts to reveal God.

  1. As the true Prophet, Jesus shines light to reveal reality.
  2. Jesus shines the light because He is the light.
    1. John 1:9-13; Hebrews 1:1-3
  3. The light Jesus shines not only illuminates, but animates.

Discussion Questions: Why do we need Jesus to shine the light of truth to see reality? How does the Old Testament point to Jesus? Discuss the vital significance of the truth that Jesus reveals God, and is God. Do you remember a time when you were averse to the truth of God? Talk about His grace and kindness to you in how He led you into truth. How does God speak to us today? Are you listening? What are some practical benefits of Jesus being our life and light? How do these truths apply to our daily lives?
