2013 DISCIPLESHIP EMPHASIS: ABIDING IN CHRIST
THEME: SEEING THE UNSEEN
VERSE: 2 CORINTHIANS 4:18
The Gospel of John is unique. Although it is one of the four New Testament Gospels, its account of Jesus’ life and ministry stands apart from the others in both style and content. John’s Gospel is a unique combination of simple language (those learning Greek often do their first translating in John) and profound doctrine (the theology in John is rivaled only by that in Romans.) John tells us clearly why he wrote his Gospel:
But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name. (John 20:31)
John’s purpose is to lead people to experience abundant and eternal life by believing in Jesus, who alone is the true way to life.
This Week's Sermon:
"An Unusual Nativity Story" (John 1:6-18)
As in the rest of his Gospel, John’s perspective on the “nativity” is unique, focusing largely on the important theology of the Incarnation.
