John 1

Today we begin the Gospel of John.  This Gospel differs somewhat from the first three, as it was written later and used by John to fill in some gaps in the life of Jesus that the others had not included in their stories.  While all four Gospels tell of the miracles Christ performed, John spends more time on the teaching or events that took place in conjunction with the miracles.  In so doing he fills the miracles with meaning.

Jesus is introduced to us as the Word, who was with God and was God from the beginning – a testimony to the deity of Christ.  We’ll also meet John the Baptist, Christ’s relative, who declares Him to be “the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”  Both John the Baptist and Nathanael, an early follower of Jesus, quickly conclude that He is the “Son of God.”

Today’s notes and a recording of the message can be found on the Notes & mp3s page.
