Who Is Jesus
The Story of Jesus is the greatest story ever told. It is the true story of Jesus’ life and death, what he did and what he taught. It is a story that calls us to respond to the question, “Who is Jesus?”
This story comes from the fourth book in the New Testament, the second half of the Bible. It is traditionally called “The Gospel of John” because one of Jesus’ followers named John wrote it.
You are invited to read the story for yourself. You can read the introduction in the bible, peruse the table of contents below, or click on the chapter headings along the top of this page to start reading.
The next morning, back across the lake, the crowds discovered that Jesus was no longer with them. They knew that he had not gone with us in the one boat that was there.
Fortunately, some boats from Tiberias had drifted ashore near the place where they had eaten bread after the Lord had given thanks for it. They got into these boats and went across the lake to Capernaum looking for Jesus.
When they found us there on the other side of the lake, they asked Jesus, “Rabbi, when did you get here?
