The Gospel of John
John the Evangelist, from Ethiopian Gospel Book. Artist unknown. c. 1540
The Gospel According to John is valuable because it differs so completely from Matthew, Mark and Luke.It is also difficult because it differs so completely from Matthew, Mark and Luke. The value and the problems of John will be part of our discussion on four Sundays in November and all of the Sundays in Lent. John has a unique and important understanding of who Jesus Christ was and is. Much of what we assume we know about Christ is derived from John. Additionally it is the most sacramental of the Gospels, and yet it never records the institution of either Baptism or the Eucharist. This will be a provocative and iconoclastic look at John. The goal of this series of classes is to deepen our faith as we learn to appreciate and understand The Fourth Gospel. A particular focus will be on what this gospel can teach us about discipleship.
This series is led by Father Pete Powell.
