Mixed adults 50-90, married couples, widows, widowers, warm, loving and supportive with a caring attitude that goes beyond words to action.
We began a study of the Gospel of John beginning in September. We will mostly likely take 4-6 months to go through this wonderful gospel as it has much depth to dig into. John unlike the other gospels wanted to focus primarily on who Jesus Christ is both as man and the Son of God. John calls Christ the Word in the first verse of his gospel. Arthur Pink explains the use of this title to so aptly set the tone for his journey into our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ and how He tells us who God is more fully than anyone or anything.
"Christ, as the Word, reveals the attributes and perfections of God. How fully has Christ revealed God! He displayed His power, He manifested His wisdom, He exhibited His holiness, He made known His grace, He unveiled His heart. In Christ, and nowhere else, is God fully and finally told out".
