The Gospel of John was written by John, one of Jesus' twelve disciples. Along with James, his brother, and Peter, John was one of the three disciples who were closest to Jesus even among the twelve; the Gospel of John is an eyewitness account written by someone who was very close to Jesus.
John actually never identifies himself as "John" in his Gospel, preferring instead to refer to himself simply as, "the disciple whom Jesus loved" (John 13:23, 19:26, 20:2, 21:7 and 21:20). But from the context of those and other references in this Gospel, John is clearly the writer.
John wrote this Gospel after the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke already had been written, and assumes the readers' familiarity with some of the details - e.g., the birth of Jesus - in the other Gospels. This study will draw from those Gospels, as well as the other books of the Bible as appropriate.
"Gospel" simply means "good news." Hopefully, you will enjoy the good news brought to you by a man whose reference to himself as someone Jesus loved made his name - "John" (English), "Juan" (Spanish), "Jean" (French), "Jan" (Dutch), "Giovanni" (Italian), "Johannes" (German), "Johan" (Swedish), etc. - the most popular name for sons in the Western world.
Please feel free to start with John chapter 1 or any of the other chapters above.
