Sitting under the fig tree: Looking at Encounters with Jesus in John’s Gospel and Now… February to Easter at St Peter’s

 
 Leading up to Easter this year I will be continuing preaching my way through John’s Gospel. lASt year we looked at the I am Sayings in John’s gospel, what Jesus had to say about the Holy Spirit in John’s Gospel and Christmas through the lens of the prologue to John’s Gospel.
 
I’ve called this series “Sitting Under The Fig Tree’ picking up what Jesus said to Nathaniel in John 1:48, which prompted his response in v 49 “Rabbi you are the Son of God, you are the King of Israel’ and to actively follow Jesus.
 
It is an evocative image for me to take a seat and allow Jesus to meet with us… That is my hope that will happen in a fresh and new way as we explore peoples encounters with Jesus in John’s Gospel. 
 
I’ve used the subtitle “looking at Encounters with Jesus and my hope is that it wound just be looking at them, but that we may meet with Jesus in new ways in our lives today.
