Although there is no Lectionary year entirely focused on the Gospel of John, substantial portions of it can be found in Years A, B, and C, which are devoted to Matthew, Mark and Luke. Readings from John are used for major occasions such as Christmas and Easter, and to enable us to reflect on the meaning of Jesus’ life and teaching. John also includes several miracles that are not mentioned in the other Gospels, such as the “sign” that Jesus performed during the wedding at Cana.
The Journeying With series’ unique slant is that it helps you use your imagination to bring the Gospel readings to life. Journeying with John invites you to visualize yourself in the scenes that John describes in order to see the Gospel in a fresh and exciting way. No series on the Lectionary Gospels would be complete without a volume on John.

Mark Pryce encourages 'imagining the text,' a sort of theology distilled in poetry and prose—very effective . . .Maybe you already have Tom Wright’s very useful Mark for Everyone. This is a good companion to it. This encouragement to 'journey with mark' . . .brings us alongside the three groups with whom Jesus engaged—the authorities, the crowd and the disciples.
