Firsthand Experience. Time-tested wisdom.
Experience Jesus' life firsthand, the way John did as a young man, and benefit from his deep wisdom, gleaned from decades of following in Jesus' footsteps.
John was in his late teens or early twenties, wondering what his life would amount to, when he met Jesus. Within a few short years, he experienced the unforgettable events described in this book and considered what his life could be. When he finally wrote those events down, some sixty years later, he knew from experience the transformative power of Jesus' Message, and he wanted to share it.
As you read the Gospel of John, you'll begin to see what Jesus could do in your own life. And as you hear Jesus' words and see what he did, you'll encounter the extravagant dimensions of God's love.
