Our summer Bible Study will focus on the Gospel of John. The Gospel of John is one of four Gospels in the Holy Bible and is the fourth book in chronological order presented in the New Testament. The Gospel of John is a unique perspective of the life of Jesus Christ. It varies from the other three Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke (also known as the synoptic Gospels); by focusing more on the spiritual themes rather than historical events. The author of this Gospel was the disciple John, one of the twelve disciples that followed Jesus Christ during his earthly ministry. The author identifies himself in the last chapter of the Gospel: "This is the disciple who testifies to these things and who wrote them down. We know that his testimony is true." John was also known as "the disciple whom Jesus loved."
Our Bible Study will have 15 sessions, incorporating an Introductory session and 14 lessons.
The study set includes a Study Guide by Little Rock Scripture Study staff and the New Collegeville Bible Commentary, The Gospel According to John and the Johannine Letters, by Scott M. Lewis (Liturgical Press).
Sessions begin on Thursday, June 20th at 6 pm in the Parish Hall, Rm 113
