Have you ever said about someone, maybe a bad driver or a person who cut in line at the store, “Who does he think he is?” Would it surprise you to know that people said the same thing about Jesus?
Some people grumbled about Jesus because of the things he said about himself. There was the woman Jesus met at Jacob’s Well. Her response to Jesus was something like, “What? Do you think you’re greater than the patriarch Jacob?” In John 8, people who were angry with him asked him who he thought he was. The people in his hometown said, “This is just the carpenter’s son. Mary is his mom. His brothers are James, Joseph, Judas and Simon. Aren’t his sisters here with us?” Once again, the idea is: “Who does this guy think he is?”
“Who does this guy think he is?” That’s the question we are answering in the sermon series, Allow Me to Introduce Myself…Jesus. The question was put to Jesus on a number of occasions and he answered it in a variety of ways, each time with a self-introduction that began with the words, “I am…”
In this sermon, we see Jesus introduce himself as “the Bread of Life.” What did he mean by that and what does that mean for us? What should we do about it? Let’s think think together about those things. (http://lockwoodchurch.org/media)
