    E.g. in our hymn book there is a 7th century Latin hymn translated by John Dryden in the 17th century,which has the lines: “O source of uncreated light/The Father’s promised Paraclete”. In the NT the word ‘Paraclete’ is found only five times: four times in John’s Gospel, and once in John.   From the outset, then, John’s Gospel presents Jesus as God’s Son—in fact, as God in the flesh. After this brief prologue, the largest section of the Gospel, the “Book of Signs,” begins (–).

      The Gospel of John was written to prove that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. As an eyewitness to the love and power displayed in the miracles of Jesus, John gives us an up-close and personal look at Christ's shows us that Jesus, though fully God, came in the flesh to distinctly and accurately reveal God, and that Christ is the source of eternal life to all . John 1 - NIV: In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

      The Gospel of John was shown in a special presentation at the Toronto Film Festival. The Gospel of John was written two generations after the crucifixion of Jesus Christ. It is set in a time.   John’s gospel confirmed that Jesus was YHVH of the Jews (John ). He is light (John , ) and life (John , , ). As a vehicle to demonstrate that Jesus was the Messiah and Son of God, John crafted his gospel with eight signs–seven pre-resurrection and one post-resurrection and seven “I Ams.”.

The Greek term paraklētos appears in the Bible only in these passages in John and in 1 John   Outside the book of Revelation, no other New Testament book compares with the mystery contained within its pages. What seems clear on the surface is not quite so plain.

John’s gospel overflows with mystifying symbolism, anomalies and codes, hidden levels of meaning that go well beneath the surface of the text, clues to a powerful truth. "The Paraclete represents the Spirit as manifested in a particular way, as a pneumatic Christian speech charisma.

Every verb describing the ministry of the Paraclete is directly related to his speech function." The early church identified the Paraclete as the Holy Spirit. These passages are located primarily in John's Gospel: John the Paraclete passages that speak of the Spirit as a Counselor, Helper, Comforter.

John Jesus declares that the Spirit will become like a river flowing out of a person. We'll examine this in Lesson 4. John. The Gospel of John, the fourth of the gospels, is a highly schematic account of the ministry of Jesus, with seven "signs" culminating in the raising of Lazarus (foreshadowing the resurrection of Jesus) and seven "I am" discourses culminating in Thomas's proclamation of the risen Jesus as "my Lord and my God"; the concluding verses set out its purpose, "that you may believe that.

The Gospel of John is probably the book that has been written last of all the books of the Bible. The contents and the structure of this Gospel presuppose the reader's familiarity with the three synoptic gospels.
