The Gospel of John: In the Beginning

Episode Notes:

Focus Scripture: John 1:1-5

While many people look forward to celebrating Easter Sunday and Jesus’ conquering victory over death, it is the journey in the weeks leading up to the crucifixion, burial, and resurrection that we learn about God and His teaches through Jesus’ ministry. Therefore, as we make our way through the ongoing Lenten season of prayer and fasting that leads into Holy Week, we are going to study and focus on Apostle John’s unique account of Jesus’s ministry, His teachings, and the love He expressed towards humanity in so many ways, up to and including His death on the cross.

Today, we examine John’s preamble and the poetic prowess he used to captivate his readers attention while at the same time he reveals the true nature of Jesus, the Messiah.

As always, my prayer is that God will speak to your heart through today’s message to help you grow and walk closer to Him.

I invite you to check out our weekly Bible study podcast each Wednesday at 11 a.m. eastern. Next week, we will explore the gospel according to John throughout the season of Lent and into Holy Week.



“God never leaves you nor forsakes you.” I’ve heard that before.  “Jesus will leave the 99 to come after you.” I’ve heard that one too.  Meanwhile, fear creeps up when life hurls a season of loneliness our way, and poof! Churchy sayings hold as much weight as thin air.  Believe it or not, God is cheering us on and inviting us to thrive amidst the loneliness. Yes, it’s weird and scary, but this emptiness is a safe space where you get to hear the God of everything speak the loudest. You’re safe because God is so good at owning goodness amidst our dank, confused, lonely seasons, and because of Him, you aren’t so by yourself.”
