September 2023 Study #1
Small Group Bible Study: John 1:1-18
Open It: Icebreaker Question: If you could write a book about any subject, what would it be and why?
Dig Into It:
John 1:1-2 presents the Word as eternal and divine. How does this truth relate to other descriptions of Jesus in the Scriptures, such as Revelation 1:8?
In John 1:3-5, Jesus is described as the Creator and the Light. How do these descriptions align with passages like Colossians 1:16 and Psalm 27:1?
John introduces John the Baptist in verses 6-8. How does his role as a witness reflect Old Testament prophecies such as Isaiah 40:3?
Verses 9-13 describe the world's rejection of Jesus but also the power to become children of God. How do these verses resonate with passages like Isaiah 53:3 and Romans 8:14-16?
In verses 14-18, how does John describe the relationship between grace, truth, and the law? What connections can be made with Exodus 34:6 and Ephesians 2:8-9?
Reflect On It:
How does knowing Jesus as the eternal Word and Creator impact your faith and daily walk with Him?
In what ways have you encountered Jesus as the Light in your life, and how can you reflect that Light to others?
Reflecting on John the Baptist's example, how can you be a witness to the Light in your community?
Considering the offer to become children of God in verses 12-13, how has this truth shaped your identity as a believer?
How do you balance grace and truth in your own life, following the example of Jesus as described in verses 14-18?
Pray About It: Heavenly Father, we come before You with hearts full of gratitude for Your Word, the living revelation of Jesus Christ. Guide us as we delve into these truths, and may they shape our lives, our faith, and our witness to the world. Equip us to be bearers of Your Light, reflecting Your grace and truth to all. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
