Gospel of John

Perhaps the most beloved of the accounts of Jesus' life, the gospel of John gives us a unique perspective on the life, identity, and work of Christ. University students distribute copies of this gospel to friends as a way of introducing them to the Saviour. The elderly ask to have it read to them. Children learn key passages from the gospel of John (John 3:16). And theologians write extended essays on the key themes that emerge from this book. What makes the gospel of John so special? Its author - the apostle John - had up close and personal access to Jesus: not only one was he one of the twelve, but he was part of the inner circle of Jesus' followers who had special access to key events like the transfiguration (Matthew 17:1-13). He was with Jesus from the beginning of his public ministry (John 1:29-34), and he was the only one of the twelve disciples with Jesus at his crucifixion (John 19:26-27). Beyond his personal access to Jesus, the uniqueness of John's gospel derives from its purpose. In chapter 20, John explains exactly why he wrote this book: "these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name" (John 20:31). As we study this book, God will build our faith so that we can have life.
