When someone first comes to explore Christianity or right after they become a Christian, one is often encouraged to pick up and read the Gospel of John. For it is within these pages the life and ministry of Jesus are put on display. In twenty-one chapters, one can get a good grasp of who Jesus is and what exactly he came to do.
For the next twelve weeks, we at Summit View will be concluding our study on the Gospel of John. In our study, we will be picking up where we left off last year. We will start in chapter twelve and continue through the rest of the book. This section of the gospel is often referred to as Jesus’ private ministry. We will see direct words to his disciples and further examine his passion week, where He laid down his life for his friends. It is our hope and prayer that through our time in this book together, those who know Christ will have their relationship strengthened, and those who are seeking would come to a point of believing that He is who He says He is.
