The Gospel of John presents Christ, right from the beginning, as the tangible reality of God's plan for the world. John's gospel, written between 90 and 100 AD, speaks about God, creation, and the meaning and message of Jesus Christ.
This gospel focuses on Jesus as the Word Became Flesh, existing before creation. The prologue found in the gospel of John echoes the creation story in Genesis: "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." Additionally, the role of the Holy Spirit is frequently spoken of in the Gospel of John.
As you read familiar scripture passages, reflecting on them with Fr. Anderson's narrative and applying the spiritual practice of lectio divina, they will enkindle in you a deeper insight into the love of God for us.
