    Audience To determine the audience of the Gospel of John, it is easier to determine what the purpose of John was first. The author of John is blunt about what the purpose of writing his gospel was, and John 20:31 most clearly states that “But these are written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through believing you may have life in his name.” This verse can further be supported by John 8:24 and John 3:16, all of which collectively describe the…
