The Curtain Lifted: Bible Studies in the Gospel of John Chapters 12 to 17


Faithlife 2009

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


John’s Gospel is a fascinating book. Who can forget the first memorable meeting between Jesus and some of his future disciples? Or the late-night interview with Nicodemus? Or the poignant story of the woman at the well? Or the moving account of the unexpectedly courageous man who had been born blind?

The unique block of teaching between John 12 and John 17 is suitably introduced by the supper at Bethany, the Lord’s triumphal entrance into Jerusalem, the inquiry of the Greeks, and a summary of Jewish attitudes to Jesus. It is equally appropriately followed by Jesus’ prayer in John 17. The climax of the Gospel is explained clearly and succinctly in this accessible and useful study guide.
