New Testament


1 : The Word, God, made flesh; John baptises "God's Lamb";
2 : Christ turns water to wine, Temple to bedlam;
3 : Nicodemus told "you must be born again!";
4 : woman by well shown living water, past, plain;
5 : Sabbath-healing, Bethsaida pool; public talks;
6 : 5000 fed by Life's Bread Who on sea walks;
7 : Christ teaches, men shocked by His "untrained" speech;
8 : an adulteress is, through Christ, not impeached;
9 : blind man Sabbath-healed, but those seeing are blind;
10 : Christ the door, Good Shepherd, His sheep know and find;
11 : Lazarus, dead, is raised, Bethany;
12 : Mary anoints Christ's feet; triumphal entry;
13 : last supper feet-washing; Judas departs;
14 : Christ reveals His glory to baffled hearts;
15 : we're to love, abide, in The Vine Who's True;
16 : persecution'll come, the Comforter too;
17 : Christ, to God, that we all be one, cries;
18 : Judas betrays Him, Peter thrice denies;
19 : He's beaten, mocked, crucified, in tomb placed,
20 : alive, Mary, and doubting Thomas, faced;
21 : appears to His men, who fish in vain;
   leads a huge catch; eats, and converses with the same.

John, who calls himself the "disciple whom Jesus loved" (John 13:23 20:2), and who leaned against Christ's bosom at His "last supper", was one of the original twelve disciples of Jesus. He was one of the two "sons of thunder" of his father Zebedee (Mark 3:17), the other being James, another of the disciples of Jesus. The purpose of the book is stated in John 20:30-31 - "And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book. 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's gospel focuses on the words of Jesus more than His deeds, and highlights the deity of Jesus.
