The fourth Gospel was written by John, who the Scriptures call “the beloved disciple.” His passionate love for the Savior shows up on every page of this book of the Bible. He had a close relationship with Jesus Christ, and he wanted his readers to become intimate with Jesus as well. To only focus on the coming joy of heaven would be to miss the joy of heaven on earth in a growing, living relationship with Christ today.
 
John shows that Jesus is the divine Messiah—God dwelling among us—who has a kingdom that is not of this world.
 
John shows that Jesus is the divine Messiah—God dwelling among us—who has a kingdom that is not of this world. Therefore, he records eight miracles that show that Jesus was no ordinary man. He was a man, but so much more. He was the divine Word who became flesh.
 
John also records seven “I am” statements of Jesus, showing Him to be the one who revealed Himself to Moses at the burning bush, but also, among other things, the Door, the Good Shepherd, and the Way, the Truth, and the Life. John wants us to understand who He is because believing in Him is the path to eternal life (John 20:31).
 
As we await that eternal life, John also wants us to experience the abundant life that Jesus brings today—right now (John 10:10); the fruitful, fulfilling, kingdom life that Jesus offers those who follow Him.
