    funny and yet a miracle to me. I looked up Book of John and halfway down the first chapter I saw Philip found Nathanael or Bartholomew the Apostle. That's my nickname on facebook. Nathanael. blessings from Panda Express chef.

    To become a true Believer we must receive God as the Light of all Life in Jesus Christ by Faith. To understand and convey His real nature, office, and character of that Divine Teacher, who came to instruct and to redeem mankind. This is our most important argument in following and in invitations of souls to Christ. Jesus was in this world and they knew Him not!!! Amen

    Jesus mission laid out perfectly by John! Yes He was sent to the Jew first and then the gentile everyone else v. 31. He came to take away the sin of the WORLD. The Jewish nation failed in taking the gospel message of Messiah to the world, but God isn't finished with the nation yet.

    THE GOSPEL JOHN OF IS ONE THE MOST PROFOUND BOOK OF THE BIBLE. JOHN ALLOW US TO SEE THE THREE GODHEAD IN OPERATION. THE FATHER THE SON AND THE HOLY GHOST
  • John Purdie
    Each time I read John, the Lord Jesus Christ is revealed to me, as it were, for the first time, and I see with spiritual eyes Behold "The Lamb of God, Who taketh away the sin of the world".
    Also, that the Word of God, is new every morning. It is the Living Word. Genesis 1:1 tells us "In the beginning GOD" . 1 John 1"In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the Word was GOD. "
