Brief Description

Sessions with John is a twelve-session study unit designed to provide a compelling look at the Gospel of John. Each session is followed by a thought-provoking page of questions that allow for a deeper experience of the scriptural passages. These resource pages can be used by seminar leaders during preparation and group discussion, as well as in individual Bible study.

Immersing us in the Gospel of John, this study explores themes that point to transformation, that is, to becoming a new person by trusting in and following Jesus. These studies offer Jesus’ “words of life” to a new generation of believers. Those who prayerfully ponder and strive to live these words will discover that they still have the power to breathe God’s peace and presence into every believing heart.
