The Gospel of John

John 1:1-2. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

The author of the Gospel of John, is the apostle John, ‘the disciple whom Jesus loved’. The words of this fourth book of the New Testament flow from the pages of the Bible directly into my heart.

‘Read the New Testament’, is #21 on my list of 65+ things to do after turning 65.

I decided to start with the book of John. It is my favourite book in the Bible. Now I will go back and start at the beginning of the New Testament, with the book of Matthew.

John 3:16. For God so loved the world that he gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.

I am writing these lines while watching Jesus Christ Superstar on TV, and the words I read earlier today come flowing back into my brain.

Today has been a very quiet, and peaceful, Easter Sunday. Easter dinner, with just my husband and I, was somehow just as rewarding and special as a large family gathering.

And the easter bunny didn’t stop by.

John 21:29. Then Jesus told him, Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.
