God In the Flesh
Gospel of John: That You May Believe

You’d have to be living under a rock to not at least have heard of Queen Elizabeth II.
And we all know that she is the Queen of England. But did you know that 16 different countries claim Elizabeth as their queen?

And Queen Elizabeth II is kind of like a nickname. Her official title is:
Elizabeth II, by the Grace of God, of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and of Her other Realms and Territories Queen, Head of the Commonwealth, Defender of the Faith.

The founders of the United States of America detested the British system of nobility that existed under King George III. To prevent the establishment of such a system in America, they included a prohibition against the granting of noble titles by our government in the Constitution.

Titles, such as king, queen, prince, princess, duke, duchess, lord, lady, and a host of others are still commonly used in 38 countries around the world. And for the most part, these titles are less about function and more about status. Many of them are inherited; others can be granted or appointed. And, though some come with responsibilities attached, many do not.

In American culture, titles are more about roles we have earned or chosen. Your title might be CEO, professor, doctor, or mom. This Sunday at Dayspring we’re beginning a new sermon series working our way through the Gospel of John. John was a disciple of Jesus; and toward the end of his life, after outliving all other eyewitnesses to the ministry of Jesus, John pens his last work... an account of the life of Jesus, the Son of God.

In the opening chapter of John’s gospel, he records seven different titles of Jesus. We’ll take a look at each of them and unpack what they tell us about Him this week.
