First Word & Final Answer

If you compare the four gospels–cut, paste and harmonize every account–you might have the most complete picture of Jesus’ life.  But is it the best picture? Maybe it’s the difference between the multi-angle camera shots from today’s televised athletic events, and a helmet cam worn by your favorite player. Of the four, John’s Gospel is the one that is dramatically different in its content and personal in its presentation.  There is no better Gospel to read when you’re anxious to meet Jesus. And it may even serve the purpose better than a compilation. John’s Gospel begins “In the beginning was the Word.”  Toward the end, he clearly states his purpose:  “. . . written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that be believing you may have life in his name.” Let’s read John.  Let’s consider Jesus:  First Word and Final Answer.
