  2. Can you think of another example within the gospels which also testifies to the divinity of Jesus?
     
  3. Look at John 14:5-14. How does Jesus himself testify that he is God?
     
  4. What connections can you make between Exodus 33.7-11 and John 1:14?
     
  5. Look at Matthew 17: 2-8. Why is Jesus described by theologians as the ‘Tabernacle of God’?
     
  6. Look at 1 Cor. 6:1-9. How can we as the body of Christ be the Tabernacle or the meeting place between God and man?
