John's Gospel

John's Gospel

This study was started on June 14, 2020 and the intent is to recognize the different perspective this gospel book has verses Matthew, Mark and Luke.  John is clearly written to the Gentiles and it represents the highway ministry that is going on along side the Mystery.  In this study, you will find the calling of John 3:16 KJV is always active and will provide salvation to the one who may never understand The Mystery.

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.

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 going on between these two signs is the ministry to his disciples with the goal being expressed in chapter 17.  There is this parenthesis in this chapter 13-16 of John are preparatory and foundational explaining the goal of chapter 17 similar to what PAul did in Ephesians when he prayed with an imbeded parenthesis of detail in Ephesians 3:1-13.  The scripture reading was from John 17:4-8 KJV

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 Scripture reading was from John 17:24-26 KJV
