The book of John was written to create faith in unbelievers - faith that Jesus is the Christ and that, through that faith, eternal life could be had. This study digs deep into the text of John's gospel, including the seven signs John used to show the world that Jesus is the Son of God, and thus deity.

Course Description: 

This class will begin with an introduction of the background material on the Gospel of John and continue with a study of the entire text.  Each section will focus on the purpose of John's Gospel as stated in John 20: 30-31 and the witnesses presented to establish that purpose.

Course Objectives:

  1. To see clearly the claims of Jesus as revealed in John's Gospel.
  2. To note both the real humanity and the absolute deity of Jesus Christ.
  3. To understand the signs Jesus performed and their relationship to John's purpose and Jesus' claims. 
  4. To provide material and incentives to grow in our faith that Jesus is indeed the Christ, the Son of God.
