    I really enjoyed the gospel of John. It had some parts in it that I didn't remember reading before! So much good stuff. I liked the parts where it said no one could seize Jesus because it was not yet His time. Also, John 15, where it talks about the Vine and the branches; very lovely! I loved the parts in chapter 17 where Jesus prays for His disciples, and us! <3 So much beauty and tenderness in this book. And power! How awesome is our God! "Do not let your hearts be troubled.

    In an attempt to get the Nick Cave introduced book from this series I thought I was doing something sly and ordering the whole set for nine bucks, instead of paying the eighty something dollars that the Nick Cave book alone is going for. I didn't realize it, but they have different authors doing the introduction for the US versions than the UK versions, so now I have the US version with a bunch of authors I'm not so excited about, compared at least to the UK versions.

I didn't realize it, but they have different authors doing the introduction for the US versions than the UK versions, so now I have the US version with a bunch of authors I'm not so excited about, compared at least to the UK versions. But since I'm now the proud owner of the whole first set of these books I figured I could bring one of them with me to do laundry today. I like brining little books with me to do laundry so I can shove them into my pocket when I have to do things besides sitting around waiting. These books are put out by Grove Press, as opposed to one of the big bible conglomerates, and they are presented as literature, with the line numbering still there, but reformatted into paragraphs. This is only important because I choose to read this today as a novella. From the outset the reader knows he's in trouble, the Word is thrown out there, and it's there at the beginning and it's God and he was there at the beginning and more logical relations are made and you have to wonder if you're in for one of those psuedo-philosophical novellas of ideas, but one where the author, some guy named John, is going to pull some sophistry on you. But the author gets all of the Word stuff out of him pretty quickly, and really doesn't return to it too much, which makes one think the author was just trying to dazzle with the first few lines, seriously there is so much more that could have been done with the Word, since it was originally the Greek word Logos, that has such a rich amount of connotations to it, but maybe the author never went to grad school and took seminars on pre-Socratic philosophers. So the story gets going, and there quite a few characters, and I think in the future the author may want to try giving more of them different names, multiple John's, Mary's, Peter's and Judas's get really confusing sometimes, especially when the author also insists on not naming himself in the story until the very end. This is the kind of cheap literary trick that just isn't that cool. Instead of 'some other disciple', just say me, no need to be coy. And who is this second Judas guy who comes out of nowhere? But the main character is this guy named Jesus, who is sort of an angry young guy who yells at people a lot, does some magic tricks and speaks in riddles. He gets kind of angry at his Mom when he's trying to just hang with his friends at a wedding and she starts nagging him about there not being enough wine. He throws a few temper tantrums along the way, and anytime anyone tries to get to the bottom of what he's talking about he just acts like a sullen teenager who no one understands, talks in riddles and then runs off to hide someplace. In the end he stages an elaborate entrance into a city, and sets things in motion so that all the signs of some ancient prophecy are fulfilled with him, and he gets killed. Then things start to get a little strange. He comes back from the dead, and freaks the fuck out when a whore tries to touch him, and goes on about not ascending yet, but a few days later has no problem with one of his old buddies fingering his wounds; a kind of creepy scene (paraphrase: Tommy: Dude, I don't believe JC is back. You know what dudes, I won't fucking believe it until I stick my finger right into that holes in his hands and in his stomach." flash forward a few days. JC (barging into a locked room where his buddies are all sitting around): Hey Guys I'm back, Tommy get up here and finger me."). There is also something weird about the whole back from the dead thing because no one seems to recognize him, maybe the three days he was dead caused him to start decomposing, I don't know. They aren't too clear on why his buddies can't seem to recognize him until he tells them who he is. I get it the first time, because they all think he's dead, but the second and third times? C'mon, realize who the lurking guy with the wounds is already. The story ends with JC going back to his father, which is a nice ending because he was kind of a broken record about his Dad for most of the story. I think he might need some kind of therapy.

    And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written. Amen. (‭John‬ ‭21‬:‭25‬ KJV)

    The Gospel of John has been called the "spiritual gospel" and the "Gospel of Life." It tells the saving story of Jesus as the Son of God dwelling among humans. This Gospel focuses on Jesus' encounters with individuals and his summary of his identity and mission. I really enjoy how each of the Gospels sees things a little differently and helps make us aware of all the nuances of Jesus' perfect character and as the man who could save us from eternal death.

    I love the book of John! It is definitely my favourite Gospel with Luke being a close second. John delivers the Gospel of Jesus Christ in a intimate and relational way. I love that you find a few nuggets in this gospel that you do not find in the other three. This time around two key things stood out to me. John's passion that we must follow the commandments especially to "Love one another" and the sacrifice of Christ (Chapters 18-21).

Recommend for those who want to experience the Gospel intimately :).

    I once heard from a homeschooling mother that she used the Gospel of John to help teach her children how to read. It was an excellent idea. John's Gospel is very readable and this reader's edition from Crossway is a great tool. It is small so easy to handle, it has 12-point font and without chapter and verse numbers it makes the flow of reading easy for a young reader. I highly recommend it.

    Though one can't really give a preference over any of the gospels, since they are all amazing, and all integrally compliment each other, I think I enjoyed John (followed closely by Luke) the most for his different, more reflective account of Jesus Christ, His life, His ministry, His death and His resurrection. Written by one of the actual disciples, one who stood there and watch the suffering and the glorious resurrection of Our Lord, this beautiful gospel truly is an intimate experience, where Though one can't really give a preference over any of the gospels, since they are all amazing, and all integrally compliment each other, I think I enjoyed John (followed closely by Luke) the most for his different, more reflective account of Jesus Christ, His life, His ministry, His death and His resurrection. Written by one of the actual disciples, one who stood there and watch the suffering and the glorious resurrection of Our Lord, this beautiful gospel truly is an intimate experience, where our kind and merciful saviour gently reprimands and educates us about God the Father, the Holy Spirit, the Son of Man, and the salvation of our souls which are all so precious to Him.

    The book is a miracle in itself, especially in its original language of Koine Greek. I don't believe there is any book- including others in the bible - that expresses such deep truths in such simple language.

The level of detail and the nuances of the recollections point to the obvious fact that John was there when Jesus did and said all these things. In his first letter in the bible, he describes how he personally heard, saw, gazed upon and handled Jesus (1 John 1:1). The wonder of this book is that it enables us, with the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, to do the same.

    It is a great book out of the Bible. This book and the book of Luke happened to be my daily reading books. I really enjoyed reading this. I feel like I really got to see how Jesus' time on Earth was as I finished the last Gospel. I certainly recommend this book to any Christian or any person who wants to know more about Jesus in a historical aspect. The book really has many moral teachings for us to read and live by.

    It's weird and mentally stimulating. I'm excited about the Jesus of The Gospel According to John but also annoyed. Is this right? He is a divine being made out of the sounds of god's words, and he came to the Earth to bring light into the darkness? If so, wow! That is an image to impress! He's quite an intense man who says continuously that "I am the Son of God; I am God." If I ever met some man radiating like that, I would follow him too.

He's quite an intense man who says continuously that "I am the Son of God; I am God." If I ever met some man radiating like that, I would follow him too. Here are some highlights with commentary: "Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood have eternal life, and I will raise them up on the last day; for my flesh is true food and my blood is true drink. Those who eat my flesh and drink my blood abide in me, and I in them." I love this image of eating him and becoming one with him. He is inside me, literally inside my body because I ate him. He is still alive, and has taken some of me into him as well. 103 in the shade! This is Dracula-Sexy! "In a little while the world will no longer see me, but you will see me; because I live, you also will live. On that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you." Whoa!!! I am in my father, you are in me, I am inside you. It's a perpetual chain. "I am the good shepherd. I know my own and my own know me, just as the Father knows me and I know the Father. And I lay down my life for the sheep. I have other sheep that do not belong to this fold. I must bring them also, and they will listen to my voice. So there will be one flock, one shepherd." I LOVE this description of the good shepherd, but it is one small part of a much longer talk which made no sense, but just this part is magnificent. "I give you a new commandment, that you love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another." This is Jesus' only advice for living in the whole of John. Everything else He says is only about His divinity, and that was boring. What I like about the other Gospels is that He has a lot more guidance for being a good person. According to John, you just have to have faith that He is God and to love one another. So that's actually two things. "If the world hates you, be aware that it hated me before it hated you. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own. Because you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world—therefore the world hates you." Honestly, John's Jesus goes on and on saying so often that He is God that I would get sick of Him as well. In fact, at one point a bunch of His followers do give up on Him. I would probably not like His followers any more than I do Him. I mean, I know that I do not like them today because they do not follow His one and only real good commandment to love. This is from the Crucifixion: When Jesus saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved standing beside her, he said to his mother, “Woman, here is your son.” Then he said to the disciple, “Here is your mother.” And from that hour the disciple took her into his own home. I think this is very beautiful, but who is "the disciple whom he loved"? This anonymous person is mentioned three or four times but never named. At the end it is said the Beloved is the one testifying, and early Christians identified him as the disciple John because that particular disciple is never named in the book. And one more thing about which I want to comment: When he hears his friend Lazarus is ill and at the point of death, Jesus specifically delays going to so that Lazarus will die so He can prove His divinity by resurrecting him. Is that sick? I mean, I think there's some twisted tragic story that can be made of this.

    It's hard to give a rating for a book of the Bible but I will do it from a literary perspective. It's an interesting Gospel, I know I have read it before but I had not added it to Goodreads so I reread it and  am adding it now. Some of the language gets confusing and repetitive and the whole John referring to himself as "the disciple Jesus loved" is confusing, not sure why he singles himself out in such a way, maybe that's just how he decided to refer to himself in the book, instead of by name.

    Out of the first four with the same timeline, I think John is my favorite. The style of writing and how Jesus speaking "Verily, verily" is quoted because I feel like John captured more of the "voice" of Jesus by writing the way in which He spoke. Again we had some things expanded on and some not as much, but Ipersonally really liked the focus on after the resurrection at the end of this book quite a bit!

    The Gospel of John has always been my favorite gospel, if not my favorite book of the Bible. It is so clear, beautiful and spiritual. So elegant in its writing and carries a lot of quotes by Jesus worth pondering for a lifetime.

    I think I'm starting to get an understanding of the Gospels now, this one was definitely more detailed than Mark's. It was nice reading some stories, others got a bit repetitive but overall this is definitely one of the better Bible books I've read so far.

    Harder to read than Matthew. It seems more written in defense against prosecution, than to give an image of Jesus deeds. Interestingly, it mentions 'the disciple Jesus loved most'.
