John's Gospel - Introduction

The lesson taught on June 14, 2020 was an introduction to the new study on "John's Gospel".  Wayne takes time to explain why he is motivated to study the Gospel of John, particularly how it is of a unique context verses Matthew, Mark and Luke.  John is written for the Gentile.  We were given homework to download a book in PDF form and study for the next lesson.  Of the many signs that were given, there are only 8 miracles identified in John and they were for the Gentiles.  The unique aspect of John is that it will describe the "highways" ministry to whosoever will come to the wedding. ...

The lesson taught on June 21, 2020 was part 1 of "John's Gospel" study.  Wayne reviewed the materials he would like us to use to support our study of John's gospel which are attached to this lesson so you may download them.  Matthew 22 laid the foundation to talk about the three invitations that God used appealing to Israel using the wedding analogy.  The first calling was when Christ came.  The second calling was after his crucifixion during the Acts period.  The third calling was after the destruction of the temple in AD. 70 and this was called the highways ministry. The highways...
