Book Study: The Gospel of John (NT323) is an application-based study of John’s Gospel. It encourages the student to read the Gospel as an ancient text written to a group of Jewish Christians in the Diaspora. The study reflects on the purpose of the book, which is to inspire and build faith that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and to demonstrate that committing to this faith will bring eternal life.
