An edition of John's wonderful gospel () John's wonderful n: I and the Father are one” (John ). Book of John - The Wonderful Good News The Book of John proclaims the wonderful Good News of Jesus Christ. John declares, "But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name" (John ). Summary. The Gospel of John is the latest-written of the four biographies of Jesus that have been preserved in the New Testament. Written by a Christian named John, the contents of the book indicate quite clearly that the author was not the John who was one of the twelve disciples of Jesus, for it contains no direct personal references of the type that one would expect from an intimate. The book of John is a Gospel that contains Narrative History, Sermons, Parables, and a few Prophetic Oracles. It was written by the Disciple/Apostle John around A.D. The key personalities of this book are Jesus Christ, His Twelve Disciples, Mary Magdalene, John the Baptist, Lazarus, his sisters Mary and Martha, Jewish religious leaders.

"Gospel" or "gospels" is the standard term for the four New Testament books carrying the names of Matthew, Mark, Luke and John, each telling of the life and teachings of Jesus of Nazareth (including his dealings with John the Baptist, his trial and execution, the discovery of his empty tomb, and, at least for three of them, his appearances to. The Gospel begins with John the Baptist calling Jesus the Lamb of God (). Just as Moses in the Book of Exodus prescribed the sacrificial Lamb must be eaten for the first-born son to have life at the Passover, so we must partake of Jesus, the Lamb of God, at the Eucharistic Sacrifice to have eternal life.

THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO JOHN The Gospel according to John is quite different in character from the three synoptic gospels. It is highly literary and symbolic. It does not follow the same order or reproduce the same stories as the synoptic gospels. To a much greater degree, it is the product of a developed theological reflection and grows out of a different circle and tradition. The Holy Gospel Of Jesus Christ, According to John. 23 John baptizeth, 27 and teacheth his, that he is not Christ. 1 There was now a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou. The Book of Matthew is thought to be the fundamental, most important Gospel, which Black says was most likely written first. Black refers to early church fathers to find the claim that the Book of Matthew was the first of the four Gospels to be written and that it was first written in a Hebrew s:   The Book of John is all about Jesus explaining His own nature and purpose in the world. One of John's major purposes and themes was to correctly portray Jesus as the divine Word (or Logos) -- the pre-existent Son who is One with God (John ) and yet took on flesh in order to "tabernacle" Himself among us ().
