  3. Background • The Gospel of John was written for Jewish Christians who were expelled from synagogues in AD 90 and 100. • These Jews were not welcome in Jewish communities and John accepted them.

  4. The Gospel • John wrote the Gospel to: • Combat false ideas of Jesus’ divinity • To show how Jesus is superior to John, because many people believed that John was the Messiah, and not Jesus. • Many Theologians like Bruce, believed that the Gospel of John was based off of the fabled “beloved disciple”.

  5. Themes • There are 3 themes that go on throughout the Gospel • Christology from Above • Major Conflicts • Who is Jesus?

  6. Christology from Above • Christology- Study of Jesus Christ • John focuses on how Jesus was human, not divine. • John wrote that God became human through Jesus Christ, and through Jesus shines Gods glory, power, radiance, and love.

  7. Major Conflicts • Johns Gospel goes over • How the “light of Christ” shines over the darkness over the world • We are the children of God • Truth versus Untruth • These were the major conflicts at the time, and John addresses them.

  8. Who is Jesus? • Because Jesus is God, no one can describe him • John attempts to describe Jesus as: • Word of God • Son of God • Christ • Prophet • Lamb of God • Teacher • King of Israel • Son of Man

  9. Book of Signs • Johns accounts of these stories display signs and symbols of Jesus’ life. • The Changing of Water to Wine • Cure of the Officials Son • Cure of the Paralytic at the Pool • Feeding of the 5,000 and the Walking on the Water • Cure of The Blind Man • Raising of Lazarus

  10. Changing the Water to Wine • John 2:1 – 12 • Catholics have interpreted the water in this miracle as a symbol of baptismal waters. • Jesus providing the wine for the wedding symbolizes the wisdom and richness God brings. • This story helps demonstrate Jesus’ power over nature and being in touch with people by acting with authority.

  11. Curing of the Blind Man • John 9:1-41 • This sign contrasts a blind man who was given sight, and those who are spiritually blind. • The man who was cured did not criticize Jesus when in the presence of the authorities, and his faith deepened • Many men denied that Jesus cured him, and remain ignorant without the light of God.

  12. Book of Glory • The second part of Johns Gospel is the Book of Glory • It consists of Jesus’ Death and Resurrection • In these books, John prepares his fellow Apostles for Jesus’ “Hour of Glory”, which is his death. • John then instructs them on how to live after his Resurrection, and his Passion, Death, and Resurrection reveal Gods love for us.
