The Gospel of John VIII
Many Christians have a special love for the Gospel of John and certainly we should. This book presents our Saviour as the Word, the Light of the World, the Lamb of God, the True Vine, the Good Shepherd, and much more. But mostly, He is our Saviour—the one sent by the Father to die on the cross and offer us eternal salvation.
In John, God uses a great simplicity of language to convey the richest treasures. Much of what God has to say to us in John is indeed simple. But this plain garment is wrapped around deep and wonderful truths. To say “grace and truth came by Jesus Christ” (John 1:17) sounds simple, but what a world of goodness lies behind this statement. This is only one of many statements that will be studied in depth in this course.
This course on John is not a Sunday School lesson; it is an in-depth look at the wonders of what God has in this book. This study of John covers most of the major Bible doctrines and many of the subjects that we must deal with in this life. Through it all, the Father and the Son are glorified and you learn to understand to some extent that glory.
One pastor who took the class locally said that he almost did not take it since he already felt comfortable with the Book of John. After a few weeks, he said that he was glad he took it because there is so much more to the book than he ever thought. This could be your experience as well. Why not begin this course and see what the Lord will open up for you?
