John
Speaker's Picture
Sunday School,  February 2, 2014

Stories always have a beginning, middle, and climax, and the storytellers structure their stories to achieve their desired effect. Likewise, the biblical authors also arrange their material so that their true stories have the maximum impact. John is probably the most familiar, and perhaps the most loved of all of the Gospels. But do we really understand what John is doing through the way he organizes his material in order to highlight his message? We begin our study of John’s Gospel by examining John’s “narrative structure,” or the way he organizes and arranges the content of his gospel. By doing this, we discover the author’s purpose and God’s message for us in John.
