Study Notes for John Series

 

Who wrote the gospel?

 

The gospel of John is an eyewitness account, first hand testimony of Jesus Christ, written by the "disciple Jesus loved" whom many know as John the brother of James, the son of Zebedee and Salome. This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true” John 21:24. Though the gospels Matthew, Mark and Luke are symnotic the gospel of John is known to be spiritual in nature. 

 

Time frame when John was written is sometime between 90 AD and100 AD

 

Why is Jesus so important?

 

John's gospel develops the Christology that Jesus is the Son of God, the Messiah, and that to have salvation one must have Jesus.

What is the life application?

 

But Jesus’s life as the agent of change wasn’t without an ultimate purpose. Amid His hands-on ministry, Jesus constantly pointed to the definitive way in which He would serve humanity: His death on the cross and His resurrection from the dead. It is only through faith in these works of Jesus Christ that human beings find eternal redemption for their whole selves. Moreover, Jesus becomes our model for how to live our lives—serving others as He did.
