The gospel of John
Delbert Enns www.EasTview.org
The gospel of John was written later to supplement the other gospels.
John was a fisherman and one of the first disciples. He called himself the disciple whom Jesus loved.
Not much difference from our society
John explains the gospel. Jesus was before all creation.
Logos - The Word among us. Not a far away deity
Unity in the Trinity.
He is the Greatest. Greater than Abraham
In him there are no hierarchies
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and God was the Word. He was with God in the beginning. All things were made through Him, and nothing that was made was made without Him.
John 1:1-3 CPDV
The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!
John 1:29 ESV
Jesus is the son of eternal God.
Read John 1
How is justice done?
We have an innate sense of justice and fairness. How do we do justice?
A child cries when a toy is taken away.
When do we know when to fight for justice?
Do you make things right?
Adam and Eve were willfully disobedient. Genesis 3
We want to make things right. 10 Commandments were given as a guide for justice.
Putting things right. Unless a grain of rice dies it can't bear fruit.
Life is greater out there. We are only here for a minute.
