Before we start our reading in John’s Gospel on 1/10, let’s look at some helpful information that will make the journey through John easier!
➡️John’s Gospel is often called the “Theological Gospel”

➡️John gives the purpose of his book (John 20:31)
1.) Jesus is the Christ, The Son of God,
2.)By believing THIS TRUTH of Jesus you may have LIFE through His Name.
➡️Comparison to the other Gospels:
1.)John’s focus areas of ministry in his book is around Judea and Jerusalem. Not in Galilee like the others.
2.)John records 3 Passover visits to the temple; the others only report one.
3.) John focuses more on his teachings and less on his doings. (The Last Supper is three chapters.)
🚨Repetitive theological terms (light, word, darkness, belief, unbelief, faith, born, Son of God, life, glory)
“The Apostle of Love”
➡️John’s writings were meant to reveal God’s Love for us
-Also our love for others as believers
➡️John’s transformation- From Volatile to sensitive
-Wanted chief places in the Kingdom (Matthew 20:20-28)
-Sought to call down fire from heaven (Luke 9:51-55)
➡️Helpful Reading Tip: John’s writings follow a pattern;
1.)Someone asks Jesus a question, he answers brief.
2.)The listeners misunderstand and Jesus breaks down his response and teaches them.
