John's Gospel - Part 12

The lesson on September 6, 2020 was part 12 of "John's Gospel".  This lesson was prepared in quarantine for corona virus precautions.  Chapter 12 still covers the enormous gap between the 7th and 8th signs in the gospel of John.  Wayne reflected on John 2:22  that said "When therefore he was risen from the dead, his disciples remembered".  With remembrance comes joy, comfort and service that we can take note of this within our family (Philippians. 1:4, 25; 2:2, 17-18; 4:1; John 15:11).
