John 11-12 Jul 2008
John tells us that he wrote his Gospel "that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name" (John 20:31).
In John's Gospel, we come face to face with Jesus Christ, God's eternal Son, the one who was God and who was with God in the beginning, yet who became one of us so that we might have life. In an account of exquisite beauty and profound insight, John guides us through the story of Jesus' life as he reveals his glory and prepares his disciples for his upcoming death and resurrection. John gives us a unique opportunity to "listen in" on Jesus' intimate conversations with his Heavenly Father and with his own disciples.
Along the way we learn what it means to be God's children, and about sin, life, death, judgement, resurrection and worship. Readers of the Gospel come to trust and follow Jesus as the good shepherd, the bread of life, the light of the world.
John's language is simple, but the truths he teaches are profound. Each sentence and phrase is weighted with meaning, for (as John tells us in chapter 1) it comes from the lips of the Lord of the Universe.
The aim of these 2 days is to help us to get a grasp of the overall structure and some of the key ideas in the Gospel. Participants will practice reading and interpreting sections of the Gospel themselves in the light of these key themes, so that those whom they teach will also know Jesus personally, and may have life in him.
