The purpose of the Gospel of John is “that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” Central to the Apostle John’s message is the idea of believing. Author Joe Dongell establishes that this believing does not call simply for optimism about life, nor a belief that God exists, but for faith and confidence in the truth that Jesus is indeed the Son of God.

His insights as a teacher and scholar of the Bible enable Dongell to expertly unfold the truths of Scripture and to draw readers into a more earnest study of the Word. He shows us that the relevance of Scripture is unsurpassed. It gives us more than help for daily living, more than “one source of truth among many.” It reveals that “believing” can lead to the redemption of souls and the transformation of lives. This foremost need of humankind is met by God’s grace through Christ—the Christ we see in the fourth Gospel as God in the flesh.

Dongell demonstrates that the Gospel of John is about a pilgrimage of growth for the weak in faith and a journey of discovery for the faithless, that they may know the Son of God.

His doctoral dissertation focused on the literary structure of Luke’s Gospel, a particular interest that has more recently extended into the Gospels of Mark and John.
