The importance of understanding proper doctrine and theology is not for the sole purpose of learning more about God but it also serves the purpose to learn more about you and what your life is to reflect and represent as a follower of Christ. This study of the Gospel of John will open your eyes and mind to see the full meaning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Taking this walk through this book at a reasonable pace (verse by verse) will allow us to paint a picture in our minds of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Please meditate on these verses as you study them and pray the verses daily and finally submit to the working of the Holy Spirit and allow him to illuminate the Word of God in a way you can understand it.
Gospel of John: Different vantage point of the life of Christ.
Matt Mark Luke were the Synoptic Gospels. Included accounts of healing, miracles, eschatology discourse, exorcising of demons and Narrative Parables. John did not.
4 accounts do present Christ as the Son of Man and the Messiah (Mark 2:10; Jn. 1:51)
Son of God, God in human Flesh (Jn. 1:34; Mark 1:1)
Four refer to Christ as the Savior who came to save his people from their sins (Matt. 1:21; cf Jn. 3:16)
The author was the apostle John. Never mentioning his name in his writing, John did however made mention of himself as “the disciple whom Jesus loved” (Jn. 21:20).
John was the only author of the Gospels to state his purpose: “But these things have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name” (Jn. 20:31).
The Gospel of John, was written to convince the readers of the true identity of Jesus Christ and present Him as God incarnate (vs. 1:1, 14; 8:23, 58; 10:30; 20:28).
John also was the author of the epistles of John and Revelation. He was also nick named the apostle of Love since he used that word 80 times in his writings.
The New Testament allows us to see the fulfillment of what was spoken of in the Old Testament.
God’s sovereign plan of redemption which was promised in the books of the Old Testament had fulfilled these prophecies to the exact precise manner which were recorded in the New Testament.
Jesus, fully God and fully human incarnate in human flesh, was the necessary sacrifice that saves those who believe and repent.
It is in this book that John wrote, by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, that God lowered Himself to our level to give us the truth by which man can be saved.
