John 1:43-51: Jacob’s Ladder
October 5, 2021
TODAY'S BIBLE READING:
Take, then, and read a full analysis of this section of John, and instead this morning simply reflect on the following bullet points:
- Read the story of Jacob’s ladder in Genesis 28. What is Jesus saying about how that story is now fulfilled in him?
- If Jesus is the one and only through whom “heaven [is] opened” (1:51), how should we then prioritize our lives?
- How should we emphasize evangelism?
- How should we emphasize missions?
- What comfort does this give us as we face our own mortality?
