John's gospel is clear in its purpose: that you may believe that Jesus is the Son of God and you might find life in Him. This spring, as we continue to navigate these difficult days, we will be working our way through John's gospel. Focusing on the signs Jesus performs and the way He does not focus on the cause of problems but instead looks forward to what God was going to do about them.

John | Overview
John's gospel has a very clear message which he makes know in John 20: “Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book. But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”
