The Gospel of John

Gospel of John

In the Gospel of John, Jesus’ closest friend wrote down a record of Jesus’ life, ministry, teaching, death, and resurrection. We’ll make our way through this entire book, from beginning to end following Easter. Palm Sunday and Easter served as introductions to this powerful book.

  • 9/8 – Jesus is the Resurrection and the Life – John 11

    Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead confirming He is the resurrection and the life. He also demonstrates He truly is the Son of God, shows us that He has the power to dissipate all darkness, and can fix all that is wrong with our world.

  • 9/1 – The Good Shepherd – John 10

    The religious leaders of the day did not care for the people but rather wanted to steal, kill, and destroy them. In contrast to these “shepherds,” Jesus is the good shepherd who lays his life down for us sheep. When we follow the Good Shepherd, we find a life abundant with meaning and significance in the midst of an evil and broken world.

  • 8/25 – Spiritual Blindness – John 9

    Jesus gives sight to a man blind from birth but the religious leaders refuse to see their need of Jesus. We’ll be plagued by blindspots until we open our eyes to Jesus.

  • 8/18 – The Truth Will Set You Free – John 8

    When we follow Jesus, we abide in His truth and this truth sets us free from the brokenness and sin of this world and our hearts.

  • 8/11 – I am the Light of the World – John 8

    Jesus once again claims to be what we’ve been looking for, but this time it’s in the middle of an important feast and right after demonstrating He doesn’t judge like we judge. He came to save, not condemn.

  • 8/4 – Genuine Jesus – John 7

    There are no genuine disciples without a genuine Jesus.

  • 7/28 – I AM the Bread of Life – John 6:21-71

    In the 2nd part of John 6, Jesus explains that He is the source of true life and offers His followers something far greater than what they’re craving.

  • 7/21 – The Son in all His Glory – John 6:1-20

    Pastor Eric helps us understand the meaning and importance of Jesus’ “glory.”

  • 7/14 – Equality with God – John 5:19-36

    Jesus not only claimed to be equal with God, He claimed to be God giving him the power over life, death, and judgement. To give greater credibility to his claim, he gave 4 witnesses to His status as God’s son

  • 7/7 – Do You Want to be Well? – John 5:1-18

    Jesus demonstrates once again that he has power over the physical and authority above the law, so that we might know that He can heal what is wrong with us at our core… sin.

  • 6/31 – Jesus in His hometown – John 4:43-54

    When Jesus ministered in his hometown, the people didn’t respond like others had in other places. Jesus would say that prophets have no honor in their hometown. No matter how familiar you are with Jesus, He demands a response to His power and message.

  • 6/24 – The Samaritan Woman – John 4:1-42

    As a part of our VBS Program we focused on this important and powerful verse. There’s no wonder this verse is one of the most famous Bible passages.

  • 6/17 – He Must Increase – John 3:17-36

    As a part of our VBS Program we focused on this important and powerful verse. There’s no wonder this verse is one of the most famous Bible passages.

  • 6/10 – For God So Loved – John 3:16

    As a part of our VBS Program we focused on this important and powerful verse. There’s no wonder this verse is one of the most famous Bible passages.

  • 6/3 – Born Again – John 3:1-15

    When the leading teacher of the Pharisees come to ask Jesus some questions he’s astonished to learn that to enter the kingdom he must be born again. Jesus explains what this means and why it’s possible.

  • 5/26 – Savage Jesus – John 2:13-25

    John goes from telling us the story of Jesus converting water into wine at a wedding to Jesus flipping over tables inside the temple. These extremes show us that John wants us to see who Jesus is- all of Him.

  • 5/19 – Generous Jesus – John 2:1-12

    John goes from telling us the story of Jesus converting water into wine at a wedding to Jesus flipping over tables inside the temple. These extremes show us that John wants us to see who Jesus is- all of Him.

  • 5/12 –The Call of Discipleship – John 1:35-49

    The first chapter closes with the origin story of the very first core group, the disciples. Jesus could see their past and knew their potential. He invited them to follow Him because He knew His own power to lead them into their calling.

  • 5/5 –John the Baptist – John 1:14-34

    John the Baptist is extraordinary because of the location, the manner, and the substance of his testimony.

  • 4/28 –Before the Beginning – John 1:1-13

    Jesus was no man sent from God, He was God as a man.
    He created all that we see, including us. He made us and then came to buy us back.

  • 4/21 – Easter – Easter Changes Everything – John 20 & 21

    Jesus appears to the terrified disciples and His first words are, Peace be with you. He then empowers them to carry the good news to the world. This is the beginning of the transformation of all things, of all things being made new, of everything receiving new life.

  • 4/14 – Palm Sunday – Crown Him – John 12

    Easter changes everything, but Palm Sunday shows us HOW.
    The throne was His, but He walked past it to the cross. He deserved a crown but He wore the thorns. However, did not die as a mere martyr or a fallen King. Rather, He died as the ultimate, cosmic, and final payment for the sin of mankind. No man, martyr, or king could do that- only the Son God could.
