Gospel has long been a favorite among Christians. In it we encounter
the living Jesus in his glory and his humanity, portrayed with both simplicity
and depth. Through the eyes of faith John retells the story of the Word, drawing
out its meaning for his readers so that they "may believe that Jesus is the
Messiah, the Son of God" and "have life in his name."
this Bible Speaks Today volume, longtime pastor Bruce Milne provides a
thoughtful exposition of John well-suited to preachers and anyone who seeks a
deeper appreciation of the text. He sets the stage with introductory material on
the authorship of John, how it compares to the other three Gospels, and its
purpose and theology. Then Milne guides readers passage-by-passage through the
text, paying attention to practical application as well as interpretation. A
study guide at the end of the book will help you to further ponder and apply the
riches of this Gospel. This completely redesigned new edition includes updated
language and Scripture quotations throughout.
Milne puts it, "The mystery of Jesus Christ is the theme of this gospel; always
beyond us, yet always summoning us to explore it more fully." With The
Message of John, you have an accessible and reliable guide as you explore
John's powerful portrait of Christ.
Milne was pastor of First Baptist Church in Vancouver, Canada, for many years.
Today he travels the globe, preaching, teaching and encouraging pastoral
leaders. He is the author of Know
and The Bible Speaks Today volume The
Message of John.
