Since it first appeared, the Gospel of John has gripped the hearts of Christians. John presents a compelling and distinctive portrait of Jesus and his mission. Now you can explore this powerful portrayal of Jesus along with the philosophical and theological understanding it inspired with one of the world's top biblical scholars as your personal teacher.
John's Gospel is just as authentically "historical" as the Gospels of Mark, Matthew and Luke. John, however, reflects a different style and a unique way of portraying Jesus himself.
Throughout the centuries, mystics and ordinary Christian disciples have all been drawn to this Gospel. In these talks, you will come to understand and enjoy the Gospel of John as never before.
