exploring the Man who is God
John was the last disciple left alive. Roughly 50 years had passed since Jesus and lived and died upon a cross. During that time Christianity had experienced explosive growth and merciless persecution. All of the other disciples had been killed and there were many strange ideas about who Jesus was that had started to arise. As a man who had walked, talked, and lived with Jesus, John picks up his pen. John writes to us with the express purpose that we may "believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing we may have life through his name".
