PRESENTER: Prophetess Diane Grimble
This book was written by the apostle John (the beloved of Jesus). He was very close to Jesus. He knew more about Him than anyone else.
When three were chosen to be with Jesus at specific times, such as at the transfiguration, John was always one of the three. John is the only apostle specifically mentioned at the crucifixion of Jesus. Jesus loved and trusted John so much that He entrusted His own mother to him.
There is such a love oozing from every word in this book. We see a young man so devoted that he laid his head on Jesus'breast. John was the very first of the men to realize that Jesus had truly risen from the grave.
The name of John translated is Jehovah is merciful or the grace of Jehovah. This John was the brother of James; they were the sons of Zebedee, the sons of thunder. John was one of the first apostles chosen by Jesus.
This same John wrote First, Second, and Third John and the Book of Revelation. John remained loyal to Jesus and preached so boldly in Jesus' name that he was banished to the Isle of Patmos to get him quieted. That didn't work either, because this just gave John more time to pray and be with Jesus.
He received the information for the Book of Revelation while he was banished to this island. He loved Jesus so much that even though he was alone, he was in the spirit on the Lord's Day. I could write this whole series about this penman, but we are not looking at John, but at his work.
The Book of John a beautiful relationship between Jesus and the Father. In the Book of John, Christ speaks of God as the Father over 100 times. In the Book of John, we find that Jesus' ministry altogether was approximately 3 1/2 years.
