True Light: A Series in the gospel of John
Wednesday nights // 6:30PM
"But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name." John 20:31
This is John's clearly stated purpose for writing. However, there is a secondary purpose. The Gospel refutes almost any heresy that might arise in any generation.
1. John is The Gospel of Simplicity. John used the simplest language and the most pure Greek possible.
2. John is The Gospel of Revelation. The stress and compulsion of John is to show that Jesus Christ is the very revelation of God Himself.
3. John is The Gospel of the Messiah. John shows time and again that the Old Testament prophecies find their fulfillment in Jesus. However, there is a unique point in this that differs somewhat from the Synoptic Gospels. John shows that the salvation brought by Jesus is the very climax of Jewish religion. Jesus Himself is the fulfillment of the blessings promised Israel, the substance and truth, the symbolic meaning of the great Jewish festivals.
Join us on Wednesdays at 6:30PM as we enjoy a teaching series in this beautiful book of God's Word.
