THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN
The author of John states the purpose of his Gospel in John 20:30–31: “Now Jesus did many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. But these are written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through believing you may have life in his name.
The seven units of this study will focus on Encounters with Jesus. It was crucial for John’s readers to encounter the living Jesus Christ; it remains crucial for the modern church. Without that encounter we are but a mere organization. Without that, we’re on our own.
Our guides for this study will be Nicodemus and a man who had been ill for 38 years, 5,000 hungry people and a woman caught in the act of adultery, the eleven disciples, Pontius Pilate, and Mary Magdalene. Quite a host of characters! Wont’ you join us?
