Series: Reading the Old Testament Through the Gospel of John


More than perhaps any other Gospel, the Gospel of John takes many roads found through the history and instructions of the Old Testament, converging them in the life of Jesus Christ.

John is a marvelous book for reading through and getting to know Jesus.  But it is also a book worthy of a deep dive, seeking the nuggets that are often overlooked. Diligent study, an intimacy with the Old Testament, an understanding of 1stcentury Judaism, and awareness of the issues of the early church, are all tools that can bring greater clarity, light, and appreciation for the Gospel of John.  That is the goal of this study.

The prophecies continue throughout the Old Testament revealing the Messiah is coming, and He will have the words of God in His mouth. The question is who is the promised Messiah? John answers this in his Gospel.Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing in Him, we may have life. (John 20:31) Mark further explains how all scriptural roads lead to Jesus.
