It's All About Jesus (1 of 8)
Series: It's All About Jesus
Pastor Jeff Schreve
Without question, the most controversial person in all of human history is Jesus. Pretty amazing when you think about it, Jesus was a guy who lived about 2,000 years ago. He was born in Bethlehem, but He moved to Nazaress when, Nazareth when He was just a little kid. And Nazareth wasn't any place of importance. It was really the other side of the tracks. They said, "Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?" But that's where He grew up. And He learned a trade, to be a carpenter, just like his step-dad, Joseph. And, then, when Jesus was 30 years old, He began His public ministry. His public ministry only lasted three and a half years. And Jesus taught. And Jesus preached. And He really didn't travel more than about a 50 mile radius. He was just centered right there between Jerusalem and Galilee, and that's pretty much where He carried on His ministry for three and a half years. He wasn't on television. He wasn't on radio or the Internet. They didn't have any of those things. He didn't even write a book with His own hand. And it's amazing. He lived so long ago in just a relatively obscure place, and we're still talking about Him today. On every continent of the planet people are talking about Jesus and singing praises to Jesus. But a lot of people are confused about Jesus. There are lots of misunderstandings about Jesus. The average person on the street, if you ask them this question, "Who is Jesus?" they have trouble answering. Watch the screens.

Colossians chapter 1 and verse 18 says this: "Jesus is also head of the body, the church. He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything."
Everything is about Jesus. Everything is to His glory. "The earth is the Lord's," the Bible says, "and all it contains." Listen. For every single problem that you have today, the answer is found in Jesus, because the Scripture says in Colossians, "In Him are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." No matter what you might face, the answer is found in Jesus. He's the bread of life. He is the light of the world. He is the Prince of Peace. He said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father except through Me." It's all about Jesus. It's all about Jesus. And so, so in this series, we want to look and focus in on Jesus from the Gospel of John.
See, the Gospel of John is different from the other gospels. The other gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, those are called the synoptic gospels, which the word synoptic means "seeing the same." And have you, if y ...
