Sunday Evening: “John”

John may be the final Gospel in the Bible, but John’s narrative begins far, far earlier than the other three. While Mark begins with Jesus’ adult ministry, and Matthew and Luke begin with His physical birth, John opens with the beginning of all creation: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”


Jesus presents Himself as God incarnate throughout the Gospel of John, often using the phrase “I am” (the name of God revealed in Exodus). John records several “I am” statements from Jesus throughout this book:


“I am the bread of life” (Jn 6:35, 41, 48, 51)

“I am from [God], and He sent Me” (Jn 7:29)

“I am the Light of the world” (Jn 8:12; 9:5)

“I am [God]” (Jn 8:58)

“I am the door” (Jn 10:7, 9)

“I am the good shepherd” (Jn 10:11, 14)

“I am the Son of God” (Jn 10:36)

“I am the resurrection and the life” (Jn 11:25)

“I am the way and the truth and the life” (Jn 14:6)

“I am the vine” (Jn 15:1, 5)

The Gospel of John is so unique that 90 percent of the material it contains regarding Jesus’ life cannot be found in the other Gospels.  Therefore, to complement and complete our mourning studies of the life of Christ, we will be continuing our study of the gospel of John on Sunday nights during this summer.

 Join us Sunday nights at 6:00 pm  as we study the Gospel of John
