Free Printable Bible Study On The Book Of John

The gospel of John is a very different kind of book from the other gospels. It’s more personal, with fewer miracles and no resurrection appearances. Perhaps this is because it was written later, after Jesus had already been crucified and risen from the dead. This free Bible study looks at who wrote this gospel, how it relates to the others and why it’s so powerful.

The book of John is the perfect introduction to Christian belief and practice. In this Bible study, you’ll learn how Christianity arose as a counterculture movement in first-century Israel, and how it spread through the Roman Empire, changing the lives of countless people.

John’s Gospel

This series of studies on the Gospel of John will challenge you with John’s high view of Christ and confront you, possibly even offend you, with John’s presentation of the exclusive and absolute claims made by Jesus Christ about his real identity and about his essential and indispensible role in spiritual life and salvation. As far as John is concerned, as far as Jesus Christ is concerned, not only is there no other way to God but Jesus Christ, but also there is no other true truth about God but that knowledge of God that stands before us here in his Son, Jesus Christ. He, Jesus Christ, is ‘the Light’; everything else is ‘the darkness’.

John’s Gospel puts before us the ultimate spiritual challenge, the ultimate spiritual choice: if we do not see God here, in Jesus Christ, we will not find the real God anywhere. If we reject Jesus Christ we are rejecting God. If we receive Jesus Christ we are receiving God.

John presents Jesus Christ as God’s final self-revelation, God’s final word. Here God says to us: this is who I am; look at me; believe in me, here in human flesh, here in this man, my eternal Son, Jesus Christ.

There is no other way. There is no other God.
