After reading each text, think about how Jesus is revealed or what he reveals about himself.

John 2:1-11
John 5:1-18
John 8:1-20


Does anything in the story pop out at you?

What is the source of conflict or trouble in the story?

What assumptions do the human characters make?

How does Jesus respond?

How do the people in the story respond to what Jesus says or does?

Have you ever been in a situation like this?
(If so, which character do you identify with most?)

What do you think John wants us to understand about Jesus?
(What is being revealed about Jesus in this story?)

Can you think of a situation similar to this in our time? If Jesus came into that situation and responded this way, how do you think people would react?
