Studying John using "John:That You May Believe" by Kathleen Buswell Nielson
John: That You May Believe guides you through what many consider to be the most artful and poetic of the gospels. Opening with a remarkably beautiful, mind-stretching statement of who Jesus is, John clearly reveals Jesus' identity as the promised Christ, the Son of God, come to bring life to those who believe in His name. Its portrait of the Word made flaesh rewards careful study so "that you may believe."
Living Word Bible Studies offer a guide into deeper study of God's Word, one whole book at a time. Five days of questions in each lesson lead the way to careeful textual study, with helpful context and commentary woven throughout. The aim is to read the Scriptures - and to learn to read the Scriptures - with ever increasing discernment, delight, and conviction.
The study of John will continue in the Spring of 2018. Dates will be announced in December.
