Most Christians have read all or part of John’s gospel, but while it may seem familiar to us, it presents a world of ideas radically different from our own. We read about “the one who comes from above” and who is “above all.” We hear word pictures like “the living water,” “the bread of life,” and “the light of the world," and then we read about “the Son of Man” being “lifted up from the earth.” Such concepts are naturally unfamiliar to us.

Robert A. Peterson helps you to become better adjusted to the new world of ideas in the gospel of John, enabling you to grow in your faith as you grow in your understanding of this part of God’s Word.


"Easy enough to help young Christians get oriented, yet meaty enough for mature Christians. Pastors and theologians will also find insights and approaches to strengthen their Bible study. Especially suitable to adult Sunday school classes."

—Robert C Newman

"Shows a strong familiarity with the text of John. This book will fill a real need and edify anyone who reads it."

—Moises Silva

"Aimed at real people where they live. . . . adult Sunday school classes, home Bible study groups, and individual Christians who want to grow in knowledge and faith."

—John P. Sartelle
