Jn. 6:35
I. Introduction
A. One of the most amazing of the "I am" claims of the Lord Jesus
Christ
is found in John 6:35:
B. There may be more here than meets the literal eye, in light of the
often ignored truth that Jesus Christ is both our Creator and
Sustainer.
1. Remember Colossians 1:16-17, which reminds us that "by [Christ]
were
all things
created, . . . And He is before all things, and by Him all things
consist."
