John's Gospel - Part 10

The lesson on August 23, 2020 was part 10 of "John's Gospel" study.  This week, Wayne proceed to answer these questions from the text "Life Through His Name" by Charles Welch: 1. Who are the “witnesses” (noun) in John’s gospel and why is this important? (Review).  2. What is the purpose and method of the seventh sign? 3. What Jewish tradition informs us of 3 days and 4 days? 4. What significance does the Lord’s groaning have concerning life and death? 5. What is the significance of 11:51 – “being high priest that year”? (see also 11:49 “ same year”).  The scripture reading was from John 11...

John's Gospel - Part 11

The lesson on August 30, 2020 was part 11 of "John's Gospel" study.  This lesson was prepared in quarantine for corona virus precautions.  Wayne takes us through chapter 11 of "Life Through His Name".  This chapter covers John 11:47 thru 20:31 KJV, which is a large portion of John's Gospel.  One of the two basic questions that we need to answer from John's gospel are 1. How does it impact our life today? and 2. What other callings are active today?  There are eight signs in John's Gospel and in todays lesson we are covering the linking portion between 11:47 and 20:31 which is a large...

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). We have all this joy of faith because Christ was raised from the dead.  One of the big things that are...

John's Gospel - Part 13

The lesson on September 13, 2020 was part 13 of "John's Gospel" study.  In this lesson, Wayne answers the questions of why was Jesus troubled? (in John 11:33, 12:27, 13:21)  Also, what are these “mansions”? How are we to understand the “temple”?  The scripture reading was from John 14:1-7 KJV

"14 Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me. 2 In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself...

John's Gospel - Part 14

The lesson on September 20, 2020 was part 14 of "John's Gospel" study. This week, Wayne takes us through the prayer the Jesus makes to the Father in chapter 17 of John.  We have learned that there is a parenthesis between chapter 13 and 17, where in 13:1-3 the theme is commenced the "hour has come". Then in John 13:4 thru 16:33 the parenthesis consists of the disciples being instructed, encouraged and prepared and then in 17:1 the "hour has come" theme is resumed.  We has seen a similar parenthesis in Ephesians 3:1-13 is a parenthesis of thought between the prayer of the Apostle PAul.  The...

John's Gospel - Part 15

The lesson on September 27, 2020 was part 15 of "John's Gospel" study. In this lesson, we learn of the three trials of Jesus and how they broke all the laws of the time, Jewish and Roman for the sake of "expediency". The lamb of God must be without blemish as he paid for our sins. The Chief Priests Annas and Caiaphas with Pilate felt it was expedient to kill Jesus for the sake of keeping the peace even though Pilate declared him an innocent man. The trial of Christ under Hebrew and Roman law was full of illegalities with high irregularities. The critical aspect of these fake trials was the...

John's Gospel - Part 15 - 8th Sign

The lesson on October 4, 2020 was part 15 covering the 8th sign of "John's Gospel" study.  The focus in today's lesson was on the 8th sign in John's gospel which corresponds with the first sign.  The structure of John has taken us through seven signs which corresponds to the number of completion and the number 8 reflects the new beginning. John chapter 21 is the second end of this book and it represents a manifestation of himself after the resurrection.  The structure of chapter 21 is the eighth sign in verses 21:1-14, then questions and commands to Peter from verses 21:15-19, then it goes...

John's Gospel - Summary - Part 1

The lesson on October 11, 2020 was part 1 of the summary of "John's Gospel" study.  Today's lesson started the summary of what we have learned by going through John's Gospel.  Wayne provided a summary of last weeks lesson where there are two closings to John, chapter 20 and chapter 21 being a post script where Jesus addressed certain issues with Peter because of his three denials.  Wayne spent some time explaining why Jesus took time to address Peter but then started to summarize how John's Gospel is addressed to the world since Israel was considered Lo-Ammi (not my people).   These people...

John's Gospel - Summary - Part 2

The lesson on October 18, 2020 was part 2 of the summary on "John's Gospel" study.  In part two of this summary Wayne continues to share what we learned through this study in John's Gospel and it included some clarity Wayne had not seen before. He wants to clarify what are the big take away from this study.  One of which is the adoption not found in John! We learned of these adoptions and how it is different than the way it is used in scripture.  It means the Father has the right to declare how one might be placed to be  a chief inheritor. John does not generally refer to the believer as “...
