The Fourth Gospel calls on the faithful to believe that Jesus achieved ‘the mystical oneness with the God who is the source of life.’” (Publishers Weekly) “In his 24th book, The Fourth Gospel: Tales of a Jewish Mystic, the always provocative Bishop John Shelby Spong takes on the Gospel of John, opening new windows of insight and challenging the ways the fourth gospel has usually been understood.”/5().

3) Belief in the Word: Reading the Fourth Gospel book one of the signs (the Fourth Gospel's word for miracles) recorded in this book was, in all probability, something that actually happened. This means that Jesus never changed water into wine, fed a multitude with five loaves and two fish or raised Lazarus from the dead.

Gospel According to John, fourth of the four New Testament narratives recounting the life and death of Jesus ’s is the only one of the four not considered among the Synoptic Gospels (i.e., those presenting a common view).

Although the Gospel is ostensibly written by St. John the Apostle, “the beloved disciple” of Jesus, there has been considerable discussion of the actual.

Gospel Of John. Gospel of John: A Biblical History The Gospel of John is one of four gospels in the Holy Bible and is the fourth book in chronological order presented in the New Testament.

The Gospel of John portrays Jesus as the preexistent Word (, logos) descended from heaven (; ; ) to bring light and life into a world trapped in darkness ().

By tradition, the Fourth Gospel was written by John, the son of Zebedee, often thought to be the mysterious "Beloved Disciple. The Subdeacon, with the chanting of the Gospel complete and having said the words: Doxa soi, Kyrie, doxa soi, takes the Gospel Book, and positions himself to the left of the Apostolic Subdeacon.

The Greek Deacon, flanked by two Acolytes, returns to the Epistle side near the column of the altar. In our perspective the gospel is a literary unity, and John does indeed set forth the purpose of the gospel, which in turn highlights the theology of the signs.

However, a clear reading of the Fourth Gospel denotes that the one named the beloved disciple, or the disciple whom Jesus loved, is also the author of the book. The phrase “the disciple whom Jesus loved” appears 5 times in the Fourth Gospel.

Hearing the Word of God "When the Sacred Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself speaks to his people, and Christ, present in his word, proclaims the Gospel" (GIRM, no. 29). These words from the General Instruction of the Roman Missal (GIRM) set before us a profound truth that we need to ponder and make our own.

The gospel of John is one of the most beloved books of the Bible. It is read, studied, analyzed, dissected, and commented upon as much as any other New Testament book. Yet, the student of the book is confronted and often confused by the great diversity.

Summary. The Gospel of John is the latest-written of the four biographies of Jesus that have been preserved in the New Testament.
