BT0212 Gospel of John– 3CDs
This course takes a detailed look into the Gospel of John. Particular attention is given to both significance and uniqueness in its position among the other Gospels in the New Testament. The Gospel draws on the vast array of Old Testament imagery and Jewish context to communicate the significance of the person of Jesus in the story of Israel and his impact on the 1st century Roman world. Seeing the drama that unfolds in John gives important clues as to the profound effect of the life of Jesus on his contemporaries through the eyes of the Gospel writer. Application will be made to how the message of John contributes to our ongoing view of Jesus as the central figure for Christian faith and community.
