Lesson Welcome and Introduction
The Gospel of John is considered to be the most metaphysical of the 4 Gospels. Scholars believe that it came from a different source called the Book of Signs, because each of the 7 miracles are “signs” that Jesus was the Messiah.
Performing miracles was one of Jesus’ four main teaching methods in an attempt to convey spiritual Truth to twelve ragged disciples who had absolutely no way to relate to that experience.
For beginners, this class is a good introduction metaphysical Bible study, and for those who are already well versed in the Bible, it is an opportunity to deepen your understanding.
