Discovering Our Identity in Jesus: Introduction

In this new series of video blogs (or “vlogs”), we explore some of the “I am” statements of Jesus by answering two questions: Who is Jesus? and Who are we?

Episode 1: Jesus is the Good Shepherd

Jesus says he is “the good shepherd”. 

The defining characteristic of the good shepherd is that he lays down his life for his sheep. His sheep are his priority. The shepherd is completely responsible for the life of the sheep. 

Episode 2-The True Vine

Jesus is the true vine. 

The vine is the strong, sturdy, woody part of the plant. In the resting season of growth, the branches are all cut off and the vine remains. The vine is constant, eternal. The vine is the source of life for the branches. The vine yields the fruit.  

Episode 3-The King

Jesus is the King of Glory.

In nations with a monarchy today, the monarch’s reign is life long and the line of succession must never be broken. The moment one king dies, the new king’s reign begins. As believers, we see Jesus as our King. 

Episode 4-The Light

Jesus is the light of the world.  

Have you ever thought about the power of light? Light imagery is used throughout literature and films to suggest the good, the true, and the hope at the start of something new.
