Encountering Jesus Personally
He Satisfies the Deeper Longing

Episode 1 | January 1, 2024
Lisa Brenninkmeyer and Laura Phelps

Join us for Episode 1 in our seven-week series, Encountering Jesus Personally. In this week's episode, Lisa and Laura dive into the Gospel of John, focusing on the famous I AM statement, “I am the bread of life.Each time we find Jesus saying, “I am,” He is giving us a glimpse into what He’s like. He’s revealing something about His character.  If you’re struggling to find purpose and meaning or are weary from disappointment or heartache, listen and be encouraged as Lisa and Laura unpack today’s Scripture and apply it to our daily lives.

Open your Heart to our key Scripture. 
John 6:35: Jesus said to them, “I am the bread of life; he who comes to me shall not hunger, and he who believes in me shall never thirst.”

Exodus 3:14: God said to Moses, “I am who I am.”
John 6:15: Perceiving then that they were about to come and take him by force to make him king, Jesus withdrew again to the hills by himself.
John 6:26–27: And when Jesus encountered the crowd He said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, you seek me, not because you saw signs, but because you ate your fill of the loaves. Do not labor for the food which perishes, but for the food which endures to eternal life, which the Son of man will give to you.” 
John 6:48–51: He said, “I am the bread of life. Your fathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and they died. This is the bread which comes down from heaven, that a man may eat of it and not die. I am the living bread which came down from heaven; if anyone eats of this bread he will live for ever, and the bread which I shall give for the life of the world is my flesh.”

CCC 129 says, "The New Testament lies hidden in the Old and the Old Testament is unveiled in the New.”
