A little while ago our pastor did a sermon on the book of John. I know you are thinking the whole book of John? That’s twenty-one chapters. Well, he did go through all of them but he only pulled out verse fourteen from each chapter. Our pastor pointed out that each of the twenty-one verses points to Jesus in some way. How awesome is that?
So, next time you need to find a verse about Jesus, just remember verse fourteen of the book of John. I found these notes the other day and thought it was an interesting study. We can go through the whole Bible and find Jesus, but it is amazing to me how God put the Bible together. Hope you enjoy!
