John's Gospel is an invitation to you to find life. John tells us himself what his purpose is in writing: "Jesus performed many... signs... These are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name" (John 20 v 30-31). This Good Book Guide will show you those "signs"-the acts of Jesus that enable you to believe confidently in who he is. But the key in some ways is not so much the word "believe" but "life." This Gospel shows us how to have "life to the full" (10 v 10)-"fullness of Life" or "life abundant" - as followers of the Messiah. So these eight studies will not simply give you a deeper understanding of this first twelve chapters of this Gospel, nor a list of practical "to do's' in your life. They will also enable you to encounter more and more deeply Jesus the Messiah, the Son of God. It is as you do so that you will find in him "life"-in all the ramifications that John's Gospel intends.
