We have been studying the book of John on Wednesday nights and this past Wednesday we looked at the events leading up to the crucifixion and the prophecy Jesus fulfilled in almost every step. Remember John wrote after the other gospels had been written. He tells us less of what and more of why! John’s purpose centers on,
1) Who Jesus is
2) Why we should believe on Him.
John focuses on the central fact of our Christian faith: Christianity is not a philosophy, it is about a Person, and that Person is fundamental to our faith. To remove Jesus from Christianity is like taking numbers out of math, or the sun out of daylight. It is to strip Christianity of its most essential component. Other world religions focus on teachings, ideas, and philosophies of founders and teachers, but Christianity is about a personal relationship with a Person and His death on the cross, is essential for our redemption, and His singular purpose in coming!
