John the apostle wrote his gospel many years after Matthew, Mark, and Luke had penned theirs. Already, the church was being plagued by error and by attacks upon the person and work of God’s beloved Son. So, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, John sought to give clear testimony to the deity of Jesus Christ. He concentrates on presenting the miracles and words of Jesus and then interpreting them for his readers. His goal? That you, the reader, “… may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name” (John 20:31).
This course covers the first 8 chapters of John’s gospel.

“This is my first time in prison and my eyes have been opened to 43 years of sin and waste of life. I will never be the man I was nor do I ever want to return to prison. I must continue my studies and relationship with God. I do not know what my future holds. I am learning to leave it in His hands. My release date is November, 2010. I deeply thank you for the ECS studies. These are tools that are helping to change my life. I enjoyedThe Gospel of John. Regardless of which course you send next, I will soak it up like a sponge.
