The Gospel of John is a truly wonderful book to read. The Apostle john, doesn’t mince words or make it hard for anyone to understand. The precise statement he is making is that Jesus is The Christ, The Son of God. The precise statement, believing that Jesus is The Christ, The Son of God, we may have life in His Name.
John wants people to know what he believes with all his heart, and wants his readers to believe in Christ Jesus as God and Savior. In fact John gets so precise, he uses the term ‘believe’ about 100 times to get the message across.
Genesis begins with man being created in ‘The Image of God’, while The Gospel of John begins with God made in the image of man, and the way John describes it, ‘The Word became Flesh’ .
John 1 verse 14: ” The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed His Glory, the glory as the One and Only Son from The Father”.
John 3 verse 16: “For God so loved….”
Which we build our faith on, John goes further to make The Precise statement, to help his readers of the truth of Christ Jesus’ identity, John organizes his entire Gospel around eight miracles. Theses miracles are signs and proof and only God could perform these miracles. And only Christ Jesus the God-man, could die as the Perfect Sacrifice, for the sins of the world.
