In this series on the book of John, taught by scholar and professor Gary M. Burge, you’ll learn about the text itself, explore issues in John’s culture and in ours that help us understand the ultimate meaning of each passage, and discover ways in which the eternal theology of John can be understood and lived out in our modern culture.
This series explains not only what the book of John meant to its original audience but also how it can speak powerfully today.
Our culture does not encourage thoughtful reflection on truth. Yet living the gospel in a postmodern culture demands that Christians understand and internalize the truth about God and his plan for the world.
The book of John has been known as the beloved gospel because John probes the depth of Christ’s character with a simplicity and majesty that cannot be forgotten. When the earliest theological councils in the fourth and fifth centuries worked to define Christian beliefs, it was John’s gospel that gave critical guidance.
