John & 1,2,3 John (BC-301)

About this course

Of the four Gospels that chronicle the life, teachings, ministry, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the Gospel of John is unique in content, form, and purpose. The Eternal Word became the Incarnate Word and walked as the Son of God. John unveils the special relationship between the Father and the Son. He reveals that the Son of God walked in such unison with the Father, that He spoke only what He heard and did only what He saw from the Father. Every step the Son of God took was aligned with the Father's timing. The healings and miracles were simply an expression of such a walk, abiding with the Father. The word 'abide' is a key word in all of John's writings. The believer is called to abide in Jesus, even as Jesus did with the Father. Later in his epistles, John declares that we walk as He walked. We live in Him, and our life on earth is the same as His! The Son of God unveiled to us the life that sons and daughters of God are called to live. This verse-by-verse study of the Gospel of John and his three epistles will unveil the Son of God to us like never before. It will also bring to our hearts a powerful revelation of the life we are called to live as we live in Him and He in us, by His Spirit. Get ready to fall in love with Jesus all over again and to be transformed to walk like Him!
