Themes and Teachings
Within the Gospel of John, numerous themes and teachings emerge that deserve our attention and reflection. From the foundational concept of the divine Word becoming flesh to the intimate relationship between Jesus and his disciples, John's Gospel offers profound insights into the nature of God and the way of discipleship.
We explore the concept of light and darkness, examining how Jesus embodies the light that illuminates our spiritual paths and liberates us from the darkness of sin and separation. Additionally, we delve into the "I am" statements found in John, shedding light on the various metaphors Jesus uses to describe himself and his mission.
