The Gospel of John is one of the most famous books in the Bible. You could do whole sermons on literally hundreds of individual verses. It will be hard not to over-comment on this series! Most people have heard of John 3:16 but there is so much more to it than that.
I used to not care for this book very much. But the more I’ve studied it the more I like it. It has so much great content and is beautifully written. It has a different style than the synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) but no contradictions to them.
Some liberal scholars insist that this Gospel wasn’t written by John and was written 100 years after the resurrection, but the evidence does not support that view. It was already being quoted by church leaders before that time.
Nearly half of the book covers the week before the crucifixion and resurrection.
John weaves in accounts of 8 miracles that highlight different aspects of Jesus’ deity and ministry, starting with turning water to wine at the Cana wedding feast. It includes the raising of Lazarus from the dead, many direct claims to Jesus being God, extended and heating confrontations of the Pharisees, and much more.
See The Gospel of John Movie for an overview of my favorite Bible movie. It is a word-for-word presentation of this book. It has excellent acting and production values.
