John No.2 – Who are you?
Who am I. A question that dominates our culture. The book of John is essentially about identities. John wrote his gospel that we may come to know the true identity of Jesus and, knowing this, to believe in him. John says that life awaits those who really understand who Jesus is. In this passage John is asked by the religious leaders 'who are you?'. His response, we find, is to point them to Jesus. Johns identity is grounded in who Jesus is.
