The Book of John and Your Prosperity

Most scholars will agree the Gospel of John is a quite important document on Christian theology – typically occasions, far more so than the synoptics, which are the operates of Matthew, Mark, and Luke!

Why? Almost certainly simply because the way John the Disciple portrays Jesus Christ! John discusses two essential particulars in His Gospel:

1. In the starting was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God!

two. The Word was created flesh, and dwelt amongst us!

Only John’s Gospel presents the concept of the eternal Word of God being created flesh and living in this globe amongst us!

About the Book of John

The Book of John is filled with very first hand accounts of John’s experiences with Jesus that occurred during His 33 years on earth…

John explains issues in considerably far more detail than the Synoptic Gospels! Since of His special partnership with Jesus, John is able to give us a broader viewpoint into some of the events that occurred for the duration of Jesus time on earth, such as…

~ When the disciples crossed the lake in the storm, John records they had rowed amongst 3 and four miles
~ The loaves of bread the boy brought to Jesus were truly barley loaves
~ John records the precise weight of the myrrh and aloe utilized to anoint Jesus’ body

But, it really is fascinating to note that the parables Jesus told, which are so valuable to the Synoptic Gospels… John omits!

What You Will NOT Uncover in the Book of John

~ Jesus’ baptism
~ Jesus’ final supper with His disciples
~ Jesus’ struggle in Gethsemane

What You WILL Locate in the Book of John

Even although John omits significantly of what the Synoptic Gospels inform us, He tells us significantly of what the other three omit!

It is only in John’s Gospel that some of Jesus’ disciples genuinely come to life! John shows us some of Andrew’s personality and some of Phillip’s character… we also get to hear Thomas speak, and we get to hear the protest of Judas at Bethany!

The following is a list of some of the other essential issues we will study only in the Gospel of John…

~ The miracle Jesus performed at the marriage feast at Cana of Galilee
~ The coming of Nicodemus to Jesus at the midnight hour
~ Jesus’ meeting with the Samaritan woman at Jacob’s nicely

About John the Disciple

It’s interesting that John the Disciple’s mother was the sister of Jesus’ mother, Mary, which would make John and Jesus very first cousins! This could clarify the special favor Jesus showed John (John records himself as the disciple whom Jesus loved, recorded in John 13:23, 19:26, and 21:7)! This could also clarify the uniqueness of his record of the life of Jesus…

Also, John the Disciple identifies himself as “The disciple which testifies of these items, and writes these items and we know that his testimony is accurate” (John 21:24)!

Conclusion

The Gospel of John is truly a facinating point of view on the life of Jesus, and I definitely encourage you to absorb it to completely expand your Christian stroll and super-charge your life!
