Critics make their jabs at the church and skeptics question the Bible, but the popularity of Jesus doesn’t go away. Jesus seems to be admired and respected by people of all faiths. And yet today, many people have a vague and uncertain picture of who Jesus really is. What did He actually teach? What was the real impact of His life? The opening chapters of John’s Gospel answer these questions. “God bent down to lift us up,” is a series that looks at this section of Scripture and helps us to see Jesus as He really is. As we do, I pray that we’ll experience the hope that transformed His first followers.
