The Gospel of John was written by John, one of Jesus’ twelve apostles. Even among the twelve, John was one of the three apostles (along with Peter and James) who were the closest to Jesus; The Gospel of John, also called "Book of John," is an eyewitness account written by someone very close to Jesus.

John the apostle never identifies himself as “John” in his gospel, preferring to refer to himself simply as “the disciple whom Jesus loved” (John 13:23, 19:26, 20:2, 21:7 and 21:20). From the context of these and other references in this gospel, however, it is clear that John is the writer.

John wrote this gospel, as inspired by God, 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 Bible study draws from those gospels, as well as from the other books of the Bible.

Why is Gospel of John the most popular book for a Bible study?


If the Bible were a mountain, the thirty-nine books of the Old Testament lead up to the top, where the cross of Jesus stands as described by the four gospels, and the remaining twenty-three books of the New Testament lead down from the top and look back at His cross. And even among the four gospels, the Gospel of John sheds perhaps the brightest spotlight on Jesus and His cross.

And “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 many countries around the world.
