3 fun facts about the gospel of John! Here goes!
1. Did you know that John is the only gospel that does not contain a parable?
2. Did you know that there are 7 metaphors in the form of “I AM” statements that Jesus used in the gospel of John to describe Himself?
3. Did you know that over one-third of the gospel of John was solely dedicated to covering the last week of Jesus’ life?
The gospel of John is unique from the “synoptic gospels” of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. While the other 3 mainly covered what Jesus said and did during His life, John’s message draws on one powerful theme: To illustrate clearly Jesus’ deity, His identity and His personal claims. It was not by chance that the book of John was written this way, but by unmistakable intentions.
Therefore, the purpose of the gospel of John is clear: “These are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” – (John 20:31) It is obvious that John wrote this in his book to help everyone come to saving faith in Jesus. This is further supported by the word “believe” or “believed” appearing almost 100 times in this book alone!
So who is Jesus? And what does the gospel of John say about Him? Come join us as we journey through this gospel in our Sunday services and discover the identity of Jesus throughout the month of July! Stay tuned!
