Source of Life (The Gospel of John)

“In Him was life . . .” With grand simplicity, the apostle John begins his account of the earthly life of Jesus Christ by boldly stating one of its most significant themes—that Christ is the Creator and Source of all life, both physical and spiritual. Among the nearly 40 uses of the word in the book is one where Christ Himself declares, “The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.” May your study of John’s gospel help you grow in appreciation of the Lord Jesus Christ, whom to know is life eternal (John 17:3).

We learn how to respond to God’s grace and mercy in our daily lives, and we gain insights into God’s future plan for His earthly people, Israel.

The Gospel of Mark

The Gospel of Mark follows Jesus moving from one event to another, submitting to the Father’s will at every turn. We see Him healing the sick, opening the eyes of the blind, forgiving sinners and eating with the outcasts of society. Mark tightly weaves these stories together culminating with the ultimate sacrifice of Jesus’s own life, showing us that Jesus “came not to be served but to serve, and give his life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45). As you work your way through this course, we hope it will challenge you to follow Jesus’s example in how He lived among people --- as a humble Servant.
