Monday, November 4: John 1 – 2
Tuesday, November 5: John 3 – 4
We are now four chapters into the Gospel of John. What a beautiful read! The flow, the elegance, the art of story telling, and all of the energy that comes in reading the Good News of Jesus Christ! As you can tell John is a bit different than the other three Gospels. I’ll get into some of those details in another post, for now I just want you to sit back and fall in love with the God of Love as you take John’s words . . . “In the beginning”
I won’t dwell there long, instead, I’d like to jump to the third chapter, where we encounter Nicodemus. Pay attention to this individual. Ask yourself, will I encounter Nicodemus again? As we do, or do not, will there be any progression in his faith story. While we have several more chapters to read before we have a complete character study, pay attention to the details. Details such as time, place, setting, and the wonderful foreshadowing that John places before us as Jesus speaks, “Those who do what is true come to the light, so that it may be clearly seen, that their deeds have been don in God.” (John 3:21) Also, if you are so eager, turn to chapter 19 to see what happens next.
Reading for the next few days:
