Today as we finish Jn.1 we look at the calling of Philip and Nathanael.  In the midst of that we get to talk about omniscience!  God and Jesus KNOW you and LOVE you!

We are back in Jn.3 for the end of the year and John the Baptist returns.  Here we find an opportunity to talk about growth and competing ministries.  And a little New Year challenge mixed in.

Still in ch.4 we look at how many folks were just looking for entertainment, not the Truth - parallels to today?  Then, we see the patience and compassion of Jesus in the healing of the official's son.  Good lessons for us all.

We begin ch.5 this time as we continue to see the deity of Jesus in the healing of the man at the pool of Bethesda.  Of note... the power of a simple question!

We wrap up ch.5 as we see the deity of Jesus.

February 10, 2019 A very well known miracle is the subject as we move in to ch.6.  Are you settling for very little when Jesus is offering so much?

In Jn.8 Jesus shares that abiding in his word will set us FREE.  From what?  Let's find out.

Sorry we missed the beginning!  As we finish ch.8 Jesus continues to confront the religious leaders and ends the chapter with one of the greatest declarations of his deity.

Into Jn.9 this week... Is all suffering the result of sin?  What does "willful unbelief look like"?  What keeps you from embracing truth?

May 19, 2019
Today, Jesus seeks and finds the man born blind.  Thank God he has kept doing that!  Then Jesus speaks of the "bad shepherds" and goes on in ch.10 to present himself as the "good shepherd".

In Jn.10 Jesus talks about no one snatching his sheep (believers) out of his or the Father's hand.  Think we can teach about something here?  Ohhh yeah!  How about the subject of whether or not you can lose your salvation?

We finish Jn.10 as Jesus catches the Pharisees off guard twice.  Then we talk about ways that people come to salvation... some thoughts on sharing the gospel!

Into ch.11 this week and the account about Lazarus and his sisters Martha and Mary...  Jesus loved them so much that he let Lazarus die and his sisters suffer for 4 days.  Confused? There is an answer for this and it's one we all need to hear!

Today we delve into the question of what caused Jesus to cry in the account of Lazarus.  Some of the words we find there may not mean what you think they mean.  In a book about the deity of Jesus we get a strong view of his humanity.

As we wrap up the account of Lazarus, we focus on a stunning miracle, an unknown prophecy, and even spend a little time talking about where Lazarus was (and where we go) after death.

As we move into ch.12 we spend our time looking at Mary's extravagant gift of love to Jesus.  What can we learn about how we relate to God?

Today we see Jesus' profound determination to follow God's will rather than his own.  How much do WE pattern ourselves after Jesus in this area?

Jesus gives his take on what is about to happen as he talks about the defeat of Satan and the world and then we look at what Jesus means when he says he will draw all people to himself - will everyone get to heaven someday?
