Seek and you will find

The Sermon on the Mount is the longest sermon that Jesus delivered during His earthly ministry. This was spoken in the early days of His ministry. This is the best of His sermons and may be one of the most popular sermons in the world. Matthew, the gospel writer, has recorded it carefully in his book, chapter 5 to 7. Jesus delivered this message on a high place somewhere near the North West part of the Sea of Galilee. The exact place is not known. But it might have happened in a geographical area between Capernaum and Gennesaret. The Sermon is the gist of all His teachings. It is the manifesto of the Kingdom of God. It contains the values of the Kingdom of God.

“I AM” Statements of Jesus

Apostle John was a loved disciple of Jesus. He is the receiver of the revelations recorded in the last book of the Bible. He wrote the fourth gospel and three letters that are included in the Bible. John has recorded seven “I AM” statements of Christ in his gospel. We find this statement only in his gospel. It may be because the purpose of writing the gospel and the audience of it were different from that of the other three gospels. John states his purpose of writing the gospel chapter 20 verse 31. He says, “but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.” The gospel is for all Christians, purposed to confirm and secure their faith. John mainly answers the question, “Who is Jesus?”
