    The Gospel of John is one of the four Gospels written to tell the story of Jesus’ life. Just as Matthew, Mark, and Luke have given their accounts of Jesus’ miracles so has John. Though these accounts may have their own way of telling what is important to them, the main fact is that these Gospels were recorded so that we may learn more of the word of God. “In order to understand John’s approach to the story of Jesus, the reader must recognize the centrality of the incarnation of the Gospel”…

    A significant aspect of Jesus’ portraits has to do with the titles used to describe him and point to his humanness or divinity. The diction used in Mark is less suggestive of Jesus’ divine nature than in John. The most common title for Jesus in Mark’s gospel is “Teacher” or “Master,” plain human terms that emphasize the idea of serving others. Jesus is portrayed as the servant of God, but he is nonetheless the leader of the people on earth by virtue of his status as a prophet. Jesus being…

    Analytical Gospel Review The book of John is one of the four synoptic gospels that essentially chronicle the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. There are several conflicting stories about the authorship of this gospel. One writer, Kenneth Barksdale, suggests that the author is the Apostle John, otherwise known as “the disciple whom Jesus loved” (1499). Barksdale rationalizes his assumption that John is the writer by many facts recorded in the Gospel, the most logical is the fact that…

    semester due to my study of the Gospel of John. The stories in the gospel are so important for modern Christianity because the obstacles to a strong faith were generally the same in the time of Jesus as they are now. The most evident issue to me is the need for people to see the work of God with their own eyes. Therefore, their faith is contingent upon them being able to see the works of God which defeats the whole purpose of Faith. There are two books within the Gospel of John that display this…

    God’s Hesed in the Gospel of John In the Prologue to the Gospel of John, John explains who the Word is, as well as what he embodies for God. John does this by making reference to the book of Genesis, as well as the book of Exodus. From his references, John reveals that the Word is Jesus Christ and he has existed from the beginning with God, and is a part of God. According to John, Jesus re-creates the world and gives it life. By his re-creation, God and the Word, being one in the same, continue…

    through Jesus Christ and it includes the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Matthew, the tax collector, is the most important Gospel of all because it contains all the elements important to the early church: the story of Jesus’s miraculous conception; and explanation of the importance of liturgy, law, discipleship, and teaching; and an account of Jesus’s life and death. The Gospel of Mark, the fisherman, was the least popular of the gospels. His Gospel comes to us through his own personal…

    movie, The Gospel of John, follows just one gospel: The Gospel of John. The Gospel of John (film) follows exactly what the scripture says. When I looked up the movie on Netflix, I found that there are also several versions of the movie to accompany different versions of the Bible, including the New International Version, and the New King James Version. However, even though the narration of the movie follows the scripture directly, there were some scenes that were added in. For example, John is…

    The theme of love lies at the heart of the Fourth Gospel, pervading every aspect of the book. The Synoptic Gospels focus on the theme as well, but in John’s Gospel Jesus directs his disciples to love God and their neighbor, based on Deuteronomy 6:4–5 and Leviticus 19:18. In John’s Gospel, Jesus’s only command for his disciples is to love one another (15:12), and he assures the reader that God loves those who keep his commandments (14:21, 23). John points to Jesus’s death as an example of the…

    Jesus then tells John to write down everything he sees and hears and to give it to the Seven Churches of Asia. Each church would get a special gift if they follow what John tells them. What John then describes afterwards is extremely confusing. Most likely it is a depiction of the end of the world. It could also be the depiction of events that took place before or after the time of this books publication. To continue with the description of the book, John opens seven seals. The first four seals…
