Invitation To John: A Short-Term Disciple Bible Study
In its wisdom, the early church chose to keep four Gospel accounts of the life, ministry, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Three of these Gospels are very similar to each other in both what they tell about the story of Jesus and how they tell it. However, the Gospel of John stands apart. In it we find Jesus speaking not in parables but in lengthy discourses. We overhear Jesus speaking with Nicodemus, a Samaritan woman, and Mary Magdalene. We marvel at Jesus turning water into wine, calling Lazarus from the tomb, and washing his disciples’ feet. You are hereby issued an invitation to come and see this Jesus—to hear him speak, to see his sign—and to consider anew what it means to be one of his followers.
