The Good Book Club: Introducing the Gospel of John (Online)

WEBINAR

Monday, January 13th, 2020

7 PM to 8.30PM EST

The Gospel of John is beautifully written and compelling. It tells complex and wonderful stories, alludes frequently to other passages of Scripture, and contains many structural elements that highlight repeated themes of the good news it has to share. But it also unlike any other part of Scripture and can be challenging to understand. This 90 minute online webinar provides a foundation for students to read the Gospel of John for themselves by offering an overview of the gospel’s content, structure, and key themes. Join us to learn about the gospel and then read it throughout the season of Epiphany to come to a deeper appreciation of the text and hear it speak to your lives in new ways.
