ABOUT THIS MESSAGE SERIES

In this series we will look at the Gospel of John through the framework John offers his readers in John 20:30-31: “Jesus did many other miraculous signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.” Here, just before the epilogue to the Fourth Gospel, John gives us a clue as to how he has organized his gospel. He declares that he wrote down specific signs. He calls us to pay attention to these signs, for they will lead us to faith and life. Faith in Jesus is another way to describe following Jesus. Life, then, is the result of following Jesus. Where will following lead? Following Jesus will lead to an experience of true life, or as John puts it in 10:10, “Life to the full.” We should not be surprised when we get to this statement about “life in his name” at the end of the gospel, for John told us right up front in the fourth verse of his presentation, “In him was life….” Taking John’s advice seriously that the signs will point us to faith and life, we will examine the seven signs around which he organizes the first half of his gospel and discuss the characteristics of life in Christ to which they point. As we ponder each sign, we will be learning more clearly where following Jesus will lead.
