Why Study the Gospel of John?

Studying the Gospel of John provides a unique lens through which we can deepen our understanding of Jesus' identity and purpose. John's Gospel emphasizes Jesus' divinity, showcasing him as the eternal Word made flesh, the light of the world, and the unique Son of God. Through careful examination of the text, we can explore the timeless wisdom, love, and grace that Jesus embodies.

Key Themes in the Gospel of John

2. I AM sayings: One of the distinctive features of John's Gospel is the use of the "I AM" statements by Jesus. These powerful declarations highlight his divine identity and purpose, revealing his role as the bread of life, the good shepherd, the resurrection and the life, and more.

3. Signs and Miracles: Throughout the Gospel of John, we encounter numerous signs and miracles performed by Jesus. These acts demonstrate his power and authority, inviting us to have faith in him.

4. Love and Belief: John's Gospel emphasizes the significance of love and belief in Jesus. The famous verse, John 3:16, encapsulates this theme perfectly, stating, "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
