The book of John reveals the broad extent of the roles that Christ fulfilled. He is shown as the Word, as Truth, as Light, as the Lamb of God, as the True Bread, as the Son of Man, and as the True Vine. Most of the events that are used to describe these roles surrounded the four Passovers during Christ's ministry.
