Encounter the Heart of God! The Word is not just dead letters; it is the Living Expression of God, Jesus Christ. The Word came with skin on as the Perfect Man and the living manifestation of the glory of God.
The Gospel of John is all about this beautiful Christ and believing! This book reveals that Jesus Christ is the Light of the World, the Savior, the King, the true Anointed One, the Living Bread, and the Loving Shepherd. Matthew, Mark, and Luke give us the history of Christ, but John writes to unveil the mystery of Christ. Here, Jesus is seen as the Lamb of God, the Good Shepherd, the Kind Forgiver, the Tender Healer, the Compassionate Intercessor, and the Great I Am.
Who can resist this Man when He tugs on hearts to come to Him? To read the gospel of John is to encounter Jesus.
This is a book to discover Folks. It is a very simple fact for me to point out that John's Gospel is all about believing of course but you already know that.
With the New Testament comes the message that He came, He died for us on the Cross, rose on the third day and saved us. Christ: a healer and compassionate man who loves us sinners.
Always a fascinating writer, Brian Simmons introduces us to John, Eternal Love and explains how the first four books are biographies portraying the four main aspects of the ministry of the Man from Nazareth.
This translation brings yet another dimension to understanding the truth about the Gospel, the life and miracles which highlighted Jesus' life on earth. And miracles are everywhere in John's Gospel! If the other three gospels are truly historical, his unveils the mystery of Jesus, the Shepherd.
Best of all, Dr. Simmons' translation of the original text tells us how he perceives Jesus' gathering His disciples and how each event of His life lead in fact to His love for us.
It will not come as a surprise I am certain if I tell you this is once again a great addition to any one's library and certainly any church's.
