Biographies are cool! Have you ever read the biography of a famous person recently? Popstars, soccer players? Or other inspiring people, like Gandhi, or Banksy. It’s often about things they’ve accomplished. The most read biography in the world is about Jesus and is written by John of Zebedee. He is called “the Word of God”. What does that mean?
Rational or emotional? More focused on facts, instead of emotions? John got a lot of attention by baptising people, what did this action mean? John makes it clear that this is a symbol for new life. What do you think about symbols?
When do you believe something is true? Just hearing about something is not enough for us, we have to google it, see and hear for ourselves. In the time Jesus started to work and became known, a lot of rumors were going around about him. Who is he? Where does he live? Where was he born? Can he be the prophet that was promised hundreds of years before? This part of Jesus life describes how curious people actually were. Peter was brought to Jesus by his brother Andrew. Philip convinced Nathanael to look for Jesus. After they went for themselves they were overwhelmed by Jesus. How about you?
