In the Spring of 2020, our church began a new sermon series on the Gospel of John. Little did we know that things would get really weird in March of that year, when the onslaught of Covid-19 led us to stop gathering for eight weeks. During that time and after, we looked Psalm 90–106 and Joel. Thereafter, our church studied Daniel, 1 Peter, and Proverbs 1–9, to name a few. Yet, it has always been the hope to resume our sermon series in John.
Thankfully, and under the Lord’s providence, we plan to restart this series next Sunday. In that sermon, I will give an overview of the whole Gospel. The following week, I will (Lord willing) restart a verse-by-verse exposition of John’s Gospel. That first message will begin where we left off in John 3 with the incredible encounter between Jesus and Nicodemus. Today, for those in our church or others who might benefit from a sermon series on John’s Gospel, I share the five messages that we preached in 2020.
- The First Word about the Eternal Word (John 1:1–18)
- Who is Jesus? Learning from John the Baptist how to answer the most important question in the world. (John 1:19–34)
- Who Do You See When You Look at Jesus? (John 1:35–51)
- We Have Seen His Glory (John 2:1–12)
- The True Temple (John 2:13–25)
In addition to the sermon audio, you can see more of the John’s Gospel in these three ’10 Things about John’ posts.
- That You May Believe That Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God: 10 Things about John’s Gospel
- Behold, the Lamb of God: 10 Things about John 1:19–34
- Do You See Jesus? Does Jesus See You? 10 Things about John 1:35–51
Finally, for those joining us in this study of John, and for anyone who wants to know more about John’s Gospel, you will find help with these two introductory videos.
I am excited to restart this series again. I am grateful to God for sustaining our church since the Spring of 2020. And equally grateful for the chance to return to this glorious book. In the weeks ahead, I plan to offer more content from John’s Gospel. In the meantime, pray for our church, Occoquan Bible Church, that the Gospel of John will shine the light of the grace and truth of God’s Son upon us, so that Christ would be formed in us. In John’s Gospel, seeing is believing. And we long to see the glory of God in the face of Christ, so that we would believe and be transformed by him. To that end, we return to John’s Gospel.
Soli Deo Gloria, ds
