Biblical Nuggets: Significance of the Gospel of John


The Gospel of John is the most beloved gospel which is both simple to read and easy to understand enough as well as profoundly rich in contents.

“The Gospel of John is like a swimming pool: shallow enough that a child may wade and deep enough that an elephant can swim.” – Leon Morris.

The Gospel of John records some of Jesus’ memorable actions those are very unique materials than the Synoptic Gospels. John reveals Jesus’ private and intimate discussion with his disciples; raising Lazarus from death.

The Gospel of John is one of the greatest pieces of Christian literature written by an eyewitness of Jesus Christ.

“I am in the habit of saying that this gospel is the key which opens the door to the understanding of the other gospels.” – John Calvin

 “By this Calvin meant that John interlocks with the others and leads us to spiritual truth unreached in any other New Testaments writing. These are indeed the genuine words of Jesus; if they are not, then a greater than Jesus is here.” – F. F. Bruce

This is the unique, tender, genuine, chief gospel. Should a tyrant succeed in destroying the Holy Scripture and only a single copy of the Epistle to the Romans and the Gospel of John escape him, Christianity would be saved.” – Martin Luther.
