I Am The Resurrection And The Life

Passage: John 11:17-44

In John 11 we encounter Jesus's statement "I am the resurrection and life". In some of the other "I AM" statements we have considered in this short sermon series Jesus uses clever contextual metaphors like light and bread to powerfully convey the meaning of what he is saying. This time, however, it is the very stuff of human suffering and death itself that provides the backdrop for his radical claim. In this passage we catch a glimpse of people responding to suffering in their lives, but even more importantly, we see a clear picture of God's own response to suffering and death that offers us a real hope for life in a broken world.
