The Epilogue
Amazed?
What about now?
John's gospel offers us this "wow" factor:
Christ's Divinity

Uses higher theology that reminds us how amazing Christ is!
Different perspective
John differs from the
Synoptics
in 3 primary ways:
Christology
"the study of Christ"
Language and tone
Emphasis and main purpose
Descending Christology
John's approach: "Christology from above"
John begins gospel with Jesus'
Divinity
(Ex. John 1: 1-18 vs. Matthew 1: 1-17)
Human & Divine
Language
John uses
irony
,
allegory
, and
metaphors

What does the "photograph" represent?
"For God so loved the world that He gave us His only Son..." John 3:16
This represents the
heart
of John's Gospel
The Bridge
Pod Share:
What are some of your initial thoughts/reactions to the video?
Who do the people on the train represent? Father? Son?
Who do you think the lady (and child) at the end represent?
How did this change your perspective on John 3:16?

(3 Theological Themes)
Revelation
Wisdom
#drama
John's Gospel reveals
many
titles of Jesus to help us better understand who He is
Ex. Jesus is
not
John the Baptist
(Ex. Parable of the Sower vs. "I AM the vine...")
Do you know what to look for?
Jesus demonstrates for us a model of humble service
Why does Jesus wash Peter's feet first?
(Humility & Priesthood)
“Father, the
hour
has come.
Glorify
your Son, that your Son may glorify you." John 17: 1
Jesus' moment of
greatest
glory is the moment that his death conquered sin and opened up the gate of Heaven
Glorified through humble sacrifice
No greater glory exists than to love
perfectly

This is why
marriage
is the most fitting analogy for Christ's love for the Church
“Simon son of John, do you love me?” John 21:16
John's focus on the Resurrection:
commissioning

Jesus commissions Peter as the head of the Church
1. Forgives first (Simon to Peter)
2. Deeper love (
agape
to
phileo
)
