7-Week Women’s Bible Study from the Gospel Coalition Explores Jesuss “I Am” Statements in the Gospel of John

Seeing is believing. If we want to know who Jesus is and why he is important to our lives, we need to take a closer look at what he said about himself. Jesus describes himself as the bread of life, the light of the world, the good shepherd, and more. His bold words invite us to behold him—and then to trust him.

Whether you’ve never read the Bible, have followed Jesus for years, or find yourself somewhere in between, this 7-week Bible study will help you explore the question, Who is Jesus? Using the “I Am” statements in the Gospel of John, authors Courtney Doctor and Joanna Kimbrel demonstrate how to observe, interpret, apply, and reflect on key Bible verses about Jesus’s identity. Weekly prayers, memory verses, brief commentaries, and discussion questions help women to see Jesus, trust him alone for salvation, and proclaim his goodness to others.

  • Inductive Bible Study: This 7-week study teaches individuals and groups how to observe, interpret, and apply key Bible passages about Jesus’s identity

“In Behold and Believe, Courtney Doctor and Joanna Kimbrel have put together a study that helps us immerse ourselves in the fullness of all that Jesus meant in his ‘I am’ statements so that we can not only understand them but also find in them more reasons to love him.”
Nancy Guthrie, Bible teacher; author, Even Better than Eden

“If we become what we behold, there’s no better focus for our gaze than Christ himself! Behold and Believe is a helpful resource for anyone who wants to understand (or remember anew!) who Jesus really is.”
Ruth Chou Simons, Wall Street Journal bestselling author; artist; Founder,

“We often go to Scripture looking for ourselves, but we will better understand who we are and how we are to live when we have first looked long at Jesus. Behold and Believe lifts our gaze to Christ with deep, thoughtful study that helps us see that all of Scripture points to a Savior who is exactly who he said he was.”
Glenna Marshall, author, The Promise Is His PresenceEveryday Faithfulness; and Memorizing Scripture 

“Do you need an invitation to come and sit under the word and hear Jesus introduce himself to you? This study is just that! It’s filled with rich truth wrapped in a helpful format that will cause you to see the Lord more clearly. To behold him with this kind of clarity is to believe that he is exactly who he says he is. I highly recommend this study!”
Vanessa K. Hawkins, Director of Community Life, Redeemer Lincoln Square, New York City

“This seven-week Bible study is true nourishment for the soul. Each week and each ‘I am’ statement of Jesus allows the reader to know her Savior better. This is a feast—whether you’re seeing Jesus for the first time or have known him for most of your life. I cannot wait to do this study with the women from my local church.”
Jen Oshman, author, Enough about Me and Cultural Counterfeits; Host, All Things podcast; Women’s Ministry Director, Redemption Parker, Colorado
