It’s the odd Gospel, John…
Posted on the , in Thoughts for the Week, by Ashley Hardingham
…the one which doesn’t follow the same rules as the others. John doesn’t just tell us the story of the life, death and resurrection of Jesus, but at regular points he stands back and takes the long view – bringing his readers face to face with challenging questions.
As we start our journey through this great book we will begin at chapter 3 and an account of a conversation, (John records many conversations in his book). A conversation about what it is to have faith and be a believer – and the answers Jesus give may well surprise us.
And of course we cannot talk about faith in Jesus without considering his death, so even at the start, week one, the shadow of the cross will affect and dominate what we are reading.
Brace yourselves, its going to get interesting.
