The Gospel is divided in to two major parts in which John unfolds the purpose for which he composed the Gospel. As clear as it is demonstrated in the fourth Gospel.

    to support that He is God Man. This is backed up by the Trilemma Argument along with the John’s Gospel in the New Testament, the fulfillment of the Old Testament prophecies. Primarily, the Trilemma argues that Jesus did claim to be divine. If Jesus was not divine, he cannot be a good man because that would make Him either a liar or lunatic. Now, due to Jesus’ teachings and Holy life as depicted in John the reader can clearly see that Jesus is not only a good man, but the best man to ever live,…

    The end of the fourth gospel sets the scene with Peter turning and looking at the one whom Jesus loved. Peter ask Jesus why he has not asked this person to follow him, as he has Peter. Jesus replies with “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is it to you?” The ‘he’ that Jesus is referring to is the beloved disciple.

    The Gospel of John portrays the divinity of Jesus. The Gospel of John was written for the world to show that Jesus was the "Son of God." When he was hung on the cross there were several women close enough that Jesus could talk to his mother, and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene. ‘When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, ‘Woman, here is your son.’”(John 19:25-26). Jesus told Mary, his mother, that the…

When you cross-examine (pun intended) Psalm 22 with what happened to Jesus in the gospels' crucifixion narratives, the similarities are shocking! I'll let you compare them yourself. 3: Jesus Was Called "The King Of The Jews" Plaque nailed above Jesus' head read "King Of The Jews". Recorded in Mark…

    assertion in Chapter 6 of his Gospel would have led to a much better outcome for Dido. He writes the words of Jesus, "Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps you on one cheek, turn to them the other also. Do to others as you would have them do to you" (Luke 6;27-31). In Chapter 13, John reasserts this notion of love, in the words of Jesus Christ, "love one another: just as I have loved you" (John 13; 34).…

    enjoying their last meal together. After the meal Jesus proceeds to tell the disciples that he is going to prepare a place for them in his fathers house. Jesus tells them that he will lead them there, which is also a recurring theme throughout the book of John.

    The prologue of John differentiates itself from the synoptic gospels. It does not start with the story of Mary and Joseph and the birth of a baby in Bethlehem. Instead it starts with a story of creation. A story readers have heard a similar version of. This unique poetic opening gives us the readers the idea of the limitless power this word has.
