This Bible study invites both new and long-time learners into an intimate and personal exploration of the Gospel of John. While the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke speak directly to the actions and teachings of Jesus, John speaks in more symbolic language that can take us to deeper levels in our reflection of who Jesus is. Because the Gospel of John appears at various places throughout the 3-year cycle, this book makes a good study any for lectionary study groups.
