John the Author. John wrote 5 books in the New Testament. He wrote The Gospel According to John, First, Second and Third John, and he was the penman of the Book of the Revelation of Jesus Christ.

This book can serve as a basic Bible study guide for working through the Gospel of John, helping the student plumb the depths of St. John’s marvelous and deeply spiritual Gospel. It is excellent for use by individuals or groups, for families or schools/5(44).

This begins the study in the most spiritual book in the entire Bible, the Book of John. This is one of my own personal favorites of all the sixty-six books of the Bible. The Book of John is not like the Book of Matthew, Mark, or Luke which cover the same period of time.

The literary structure of St. John’s Gospel is like that of many biblical writings, including the Synoptic Gospels (from which it greatly differs in content, language, style, and purpose). In this scriptural structure a book’s opening and closing are closely interrelated. Its “high point” is in the middle of the work.

The Gospel of John was written by John, one of Jesus’ twelve apostles. Even among the twelve, John was one of the three apostles (along with Peter and James) who were the closest to Jesus; The Gospel of John, also called "Book of John," is an eyewitness account written by someone very close to Jesus.

When we study the Sources of Spiritual Theology, we consider St John's writings amongst the most important ones. Leaning on the results of modern exegesis and biblical theology, we will go deeper, to perceive and receive the spiritual and practical teachings of St John's Gospel.

The Prologue of John is a sublime piece of world literature. In the Prologue, John identifies Jesus as the logos - λóγος, the Word or reason, the philosophical concept of God's unifying principle for all of creation. The Gospel of John calls Jesus the Messiah - Μεσσίας.

Watchfulness: Recovering a Lost Spiritual Discipline is one of those books. The funny thing is, I could have written it. But it’s a very good thing I didn’t, because it wouldn’t have been nearly as thorough or helpful. The Center for Biblical Spirituality. Painting of St. John the Evangelist by Reni - Introduction to The Gospel of John.

The Word fourth book of the New Testament is the Gospel of John. John is the fourth of the four gospel writings, yet there is only one gospel about Jesus Christ and there are four different writers: Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

The Gospel according to John (Greek: Εὐαγγέλιον κατὰ Ἰωάννην, romanized: Euangélion katà Iōánnēn, also known as the Gospel of John, or simply John) is the fourth of the four canonical contains a highly schematic account of the ministry of Jesus, with seven "signs" culminating in the raising of Lazarus (foreshadowing the resurrection of Jesus) and seven.

The Gospels, the first four books of the New Testament, tell the story of the life of only one—the Gospel of John—claims to be an eyewitness account, the testimony of the unnamed “disciple whom Jesus loved.” (“This is the disciple who is testifying to these things and wrote these things, and we know that his testimony is true” [John ]).

It proclaims Jesus in a mighty way. I’ll start this article out with those 5 verses. Here are 20 inspiring verses from the book of John in the order they appear in the book. Jesus Is The Word. John – “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

He was in the beginning with God. Author: John –24 describes the author of the gospel of John as “the disciple whom Jesus loved,” and for both historical and internal reasons this is understood to be John the Apostle, one of the sons of Zebedee (Luke ).

hon. emanuel swedenborg, together with. notes & observations of the translator annexed to each chapter. by the rev. clowes, m.a. rector of st. It feels like a natural thing to be reflecting on the spirituality of St John’s gospel; after all, it has been referred to as ‘the spiritual gospel’ since the early church.

Mark’s driving narrative presents us with Jesus as a man of action, making clear who he is through what he does. The New International Version of the Bible states: "The earliest and most reliable manuscripts and other ancient witnesses do not have John - " The "Interpreter's One Volume Commentary on the Bible" states: 1 " This passage is omitted or set off in modern editions of the gospel since it does not appear in the oldest and best manuscripts and is apparently a later interpolation.

John's gospel is different from the other three in the New Testament. That fact has been recognized since the early church itself. Already by the yearJohn's gospel was called the spiritual. The Bible and spirituality are closely related, each dependent on the other.

The Bible springs from the spiritual experiences of the people of God, while a concern for spiritual connection with God is intrinsic to the biblical writings, an essential part of their message. Spirituality, therefore, is an aspect of biblical theology.

It is highly literary and symbolic. It does not follow the same order or reproduce the same stories as the synoptic gospels. To a much greater degree, it is the product of a developed theological reflection and grows out of a different circle and tradition. The Catholic for a Reason series presents the biblical foundation of Church teaching through the wisdom and experience of today’s best apologists and ial matters of faith—God’s plan of salvation, the Church, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mass, the Sacrament of Matrimony, and Catholic identity—are examined through the lens of Scripture to provide fresh insight.

The Dark Night of the Soul is a spiritually moving and mystical book. In it, St. John continues his description of the soul’s journey: “the dark night” to “the divine union of the love of God.” A poet at heart, St.

John describes the journey and the union with beautifully rich and deeply symbolic language. The Word Became Flesh. 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning() 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made() 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.

Crossroad/Herder & Herder, ISBN. Summary. The Gospel of John is the latest-written of the four biographies of Jesus that have been preserved in the New Testament.

Written by a Christian named John, the contents of the book indicate quite clearly that the author was not the John who was one of the twelve disciples of Jesus, for it contains no direct personal references of the type that one would expect from an intimate.

This week we are joined by Don Whitney, the Professor of Biblical Spirituality and Associate Dean of the School of Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville. He is well known for writing his classic book, Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life, which was originally published inand then revised and.There can be little doubt that the main object of St.

John, who wrote after the other evangelists, is to supplement their narratives, which were almost confined to our Lords life in Galilee. (It was the Gospel for the Church, to cultivate and cherish the spiritual life of Christians, and bring them into the closest relations to the divine Saviour.1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
