Gospel of John: The Gospel of John is a fundamental resource for Christian theology. Narrative encounters between Jesus and a variety of other characters provide an important means by which the Johannine author has created a unique portrait of Jesus and of the community for which this gospel was written. During these four days, we will study several passages in John’s Gospel with an eye to how the author portrays Jesus as well as the relationship between Jesus and his disciples and the type of community to which they are called.
