John Study

Bible Study - Book of John


Upon completion of the Bible study of the book of John you should understand why John (presents Christ as the Son of God). The Gospel of John is different from the Synoptic Gospels, not only in content, but in focus. John's focus is that Jesus the great "I AM" of the Old Testament come in the flesh.

Our outline and study concentrates upon the subject of the seven "I AM" statements of Christ starting with the thought "before abraham was I AM" and Abraham saw my day and rejoiced."

Just as Paul said his focus was upon the message "Jesus Christ and Him crucified", John's is focuses upon the purpose "But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name."(John 20:31)

The purpose of Bible study and specificly the study of Gospel of John is first of all that we might believe and receive eternal life and then the Holy Spirit use the Scripture "to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. The "Word of God" straightens us out and teaches us to do what is right. The "Word of God" is God's way of preparing us in every way, fully equipping us for every good thing God wants us to do.

In Psalms we find that the "Word of God" says that if we will study (hide in our hearts) the word of God, we will not sin against God. It also says that the "Word of God" should be a lamp to our feet and a light to our paths. Both these verses imply that if we meditate upon the "Word of God" we will not stumble into sin.

As we study the book of John our faith in God and His word should been strengthened since the Bible states "faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."

During this Bible study of John you will be exposed to many of the key Christian doctrines and the basic tools of Biblical interpretation and presentation. Each student should become a more thoughtful interpreter of the Bible as they meditate upon God's Holy Word.

Bottom line for the Bible study course on the Gospel of is that the student should increase their knowledge of Christ, of the Bible as a whole, and of God, while they are developing a stronger Biblical Worldview.
