This Bible Study has 20 Lessons

Proven resources for deeper exploration of Scripture, Living Word Bible Studies provide effective guidance for groups and individuals alike. Each lesson includes questions for five days, plus helpful context and commentary, to lead to ever-increasing satisfaction, discernment, and delight in God’s Word.

John guides you through what many consider to be the most artful and poetic of the gospels. Its portrait of the Word made flesh rewards careful study so “that you may believe.”


“Because Kathleen Nielson understands the structure and theology of John’s gospel as it relates to its mastering theme, and because she—a poet herself—is sensitive to John’s use of metaphor and nuanced expression, and because she is committed to letting the text speak for itself, she provides a sure-footed guide through the fourth gospel. An experienced Bible study teacher, her work on John is easy to follow and full of engaging application.”

—R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois

 “Our office frequently is asked for solid, Word-based studies for women. And we are delighted to have the Living Word Bible Study series to recommend. Kathleen’s love for and high view of Scripture result in careful treatment of the text that equips believers to be diligent Bible students. Her expertise in literature helps us unwrap the rich imagery of John’s gospel. The probing questions that dig below the surface—more than merely ‘What do you think?’—challenge God’s people to grow in grace and encounter the Word who became flesh and dwelt among us.”

—Jane Patete, Former Women’s Ministries Coordinator, Presbyterian Church in America

 “Pastors and Christian educators are always on the lookout for rich, well-researched, reliable, helpful, clear teaching material that will get our people into the Word together, helping us to understand its meaning, to see its implications for us in all of life, and to pray it back to God. These studies supply us with precisely that.”

—Ligon Duncan, Chancellor and CEO, Reformed Theological Seminary
