Location(s): Sacred Heart Church, 3905 Hickox Rd., Rowlett 75089, Main Building Rooms 3 & 4

607. The Gospel of John.  The book of John is the most theological of the four gospels. It presents a different narrative about Jesus’ person, life, ministry, death, and resurrection than the synoptic gospels. John emphasizes Jesus’ divinity, presenting him as Israel’s long awaited promised Messiah, themiracle worker, the savior of the world, the preexistent and incarnate Word of God who has revealed the Father to us. In this inspiring gospel, filled with symbolism and poetry, John reveals the plan of salvation of the Father, who sends his beloved Son to show the world hislove, a love so great, that he gave his life on the cross for humanity, and through his majestic resurrection, proved his divinity. The writer’s purpose is that you may come to believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that through this belief you may have life in his name
