Guide to the Gospel of John
"The Word Became Flesh"
John 1:1-14 - In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. All things came through Him, and there was not one thing that came into being without His participation. What had come in Him was life, and the life was the Light of mankind: and the Light shines in the darkness, nevertheless the darkness has not appropriated it (John 3:19). There was a man who was sent from God, his name was John: he came in witness so that he could testify concerning the Light, so that all would believe through him. He was not that Light, but he came so that he would bear witness concerning the Light. When He came into the world, He was the true Light, He gave light to all mankind. He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, but the world did not know Him. He came among His own people, but His own did not take3 Him. And so many as did take Him, He gave them authority to become children of God, to those who believed4 in His name, they are not from blood5 and not from the desire of flesh and not from the will of man but were begotten from God. And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we saw His glory, glory in the same manner as the only child of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Miracles! The Supernatural Miracle Signs in the Gospel of John - By Brian Simmons - A fisherman turned apostle has penned a book that will endure for all time. It is perhaps the best known of the four gospels, for it reveals the Father's love and Jesus's miracle power. Reading the gospel of John is like passing through the torn veil and coming into the Holy of Holies! Where would we be without the gospel of John. The New Testament would be somewhat limited without the fresh, vibrant message John brings to the world. The Gospel of John is all about this beautiful Christ. John tells us why he wrote this amazing book: "Jesus went on to do many more miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not even included in this book. But all that is written here is given to you so that you will fully believe that Jesus is the Anointed One, the Son of God, and through faith in him you will experience eternal life by the power of his name!" -- John 20:30-31 The Passion Translation
