    In Life Abounding, Brendan Byrne, SJ, facilitates a reading of John for readers today so that it may move them from mere existence to a conscious sense of sharing the divine eternal life-and the joy that goes with reading of the Fourth Gospel offered here remains conscious of the difficulties John presents on several fronts for. The fourth gospel addresses the thirst for life that lies at the depth of every human heart. The life in question is not just physical life but the 'more abundant life' (John ) that is nothing less than a share in the 'eternal life' of the divine communion of love.

Gospel According to John - Audio Bible Reading (New Testament / NASB) Audio Bible / New Testament Playlist: ?p=8B The Gospel of John begins with a magnificent prologue, which states many of the major themes and motifs of the gospel, much as an overture does for a musical work.

The prologue proclaims Jesus as the preexistent and incarnate Word of God who has revealed the Father to us. The rest of the first chapter forms the introduction to the gospel proper.

out of 5 stars Helpful reflections on Johns Gospel Reviewed in the United States on J William Temple, former Archbishop of Canterbury, offers /5(11). He is the author of Romans () from the Reading Johns Gospel today book Pagina series, Galatians and Romans (), Reading Johns Gospel today book Costly Freedom: A Theological Reading of Mark's Gospel (), Lifting the Burden: Reading Matthew's Gospel in the Church Today (), and Life Abounding: A Reading of John's Gospel (), published by Liturgical Press.5/5(7).

This is the New King James Version of the New Testament book of John. John had a deep personal relationship with Jesus that changed his life, and he writes to help you enjoy the same kind of relationship with his best friend and God.

Today is a great day to start reading John. Since the book is 21 chapters long, perhaps it is easiest to read 3 chapters every day in the next week. A looong, slow read but worth every minute. Yes, it's old school, and sometimes you have to read a sentence a few times to get what he's trying to say in today's English, but the depth of study in this book is amazing, and there are some passages of John's gospel where working through Temple's commentary takes days - but days well spent/5.

The Gospel of John was written to prove that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. As an eyewitness to the love and power displayed in the miracles of Jesus, John gives us an up-close and personal look at Christ's shows us that Jesus, though fully God, came in the flesh to distinctly and accurately reveal God, and that Christ is the source of eternal life to all who believe in him.

The Gospel of John presents a marvelous testimony of Jesus Christ, and the purest and most elevated views of God to be found anywhere, far exceeding the speculations of philosophers. John's Gospel contains the record of the Savior’s most profound discourses, His most convincing arguments with the Jews, and of His declarations respecting.

4 What has come into being in him was life, life that was the light of men. 5 and light shines in darkness, and darkness could not overpower it.

6 A man came, sent by God. His name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to bear witness to the light, so that everyone might believe through him.

8 He was not the light, he was to bear witness to the light. 9 The Word was the real light that gives. John 4 New International Version (NIV) Jesus Talks With a Samaritan Woman. 4 Now Jesus learned that the Pharisees had heard that he was gaining and baptizing more disciples than John — 2 although in fact it was not Jesus who baptized, but his disciples.

3 So he left Judea and went back once more to Galilee. 4 Now he had to go through Samaria. 5 So he came to a town in Samaria called Sychar. The Book of John is all about Jesus explaining His own nature and purpose in the world. One of John's major purposes and themes was to correctly portray Jesus as the divine Word (or Logos) -- the pre-existent Son who is One with God (John ) and yet took on flesh in order to "tabernacle" Himself among us ().Author: Sam O'neal.

A Six Lesson Audio Bible Study CourseMany people have called the Gospel of John, the Mystical Gospel; others have named it the Spiritual Gospel. The Church traditionally depicted John as an Eagle soaring above the other Evangelists (depicted as a man, an ox, and a lion).

All of this is contained i. Reading Kostenberger really help me break down the gospel of John and understand the different point of views relating to the purpose behind his writings. One of the point of views Kostenberger mentions is that Johns purpose for writing his Gospel was to recognize that Jesus was the son of God (Kostenberger, 33).

He also wrote the book of Revelation while he was imprisoned on the isle of Patmos. John’s Gospel discusses many foundational and deep subjects the other Gospels don’t. He was the only writer to explain who the Word was and why His sacrifice should inspire us forever.

No Gospel writer describes the God Family vision as John does. Summary. The Gospel of John is the latest-written of the four biographies of Jesus that have been preserved in the New Testament. Written by a Christian named John, the contents of the book indicate quite clearly that the author was not the John who was one of the twelve disciples of Jesus, for it contains no direct personal references of the type that one would expect from an intimate.The Gospel of John is the fourth of the canonical gospels.

Like the other gospels it is anonymous, although it identifies an unnamed "disciple whom Jesus loved" as the source of its reached its final form around AD 90–, most likely within a "Johannine community", but the reconstruction of this community, and therefore the social, religious and historical context of the.John wrote his gospel to convince people that Jesus is the Messiah, but his gospel also strengthens the faith of those who already know that Jesus is the Messiah.

We read and study John—and the rest of the Bible—all the days of our lives so that we will be kept in the faith and become more confident that we have found the very truth of God.
