Today's reading: John 1-17
For the past several weeks, we've been working our way through the first seventeen chapters of John. With the approach of Easter in just a couple of months, we're going to take a break from the Book of John until we reach mid-April, where we'll pick back up with Jesus's arrest. But before we move to a new book on Monday, let's take today to think back over what we've read and considered so far in John, identifying at least one significant lesson or passage.
What I find attractive about John (and the other Gospels) is the real life look it gives us of Jesus--fully man and fully God--interacting with people. I particularly like the many passages where Jesus tells those around Him who He is and why He has come. My favorite passage is John 6:35, 39-40.
"Jesus said to them, 'I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst. . . And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day. For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who looks on the Son and believes in him should have eternal life, and I will raise him up on the last day'" (John 6:35, 39-40).
What one lesson or passage stood out to you most from your reading of John 1-17, and why? Tami
