Signs in the Gospel of John
There are 7 signs in the gospel of John that are miracles noted particularly to point out something. What are they pointing out? This study of 6 sessions is about the signs and how they relate to our authority in Christ.
Each of the four gospels shows one of the pictures of Jesus Christ -- Matthew (lion) = king, Mark (ox) = servant, Luke (man) = man, John (eagle) = Son of God, Son of Man. (See teaching series on I Thessalonians for more explanation.)
The phrase "Son of Man" is a very specific title which is given to Jesus Christ to show his authority to judge the world, especially at the resurrection.
26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;
27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.
28 Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,
29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.
30 I can of mine own self do nothing: as I hear, I judge: and my judgment is just; because I seek not mine own will, but the will of the Father which hath sent me.
