The Gospel of John

John's gospel is unique in many ways. John records very few individual incidents (unlike the other gospels), but instead uses each one as a springboard to describe the unique teaching of Jesus. He uses simple words very repetitively, but he makes them convey the deepest realities - the spiritual meaning of things and the divine perspective upon the world. John emphasises the closeness between Jesus and his Father, and the fact that Jesus is the perfect revelation of God and His purpose - the Word made flesh. And he challenges his readers to confront Jesus for themselves, and through belief in him to have the hope of true freedom and eternal life.
