Archived Teaching with the Bible Topics  
The gospel of John is unique in its depiction of Jesus and his ministry. In this way, it differs significantly from the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. John is infused with theological perspective instead of biographical narrative. In this gospel, Jesus is presented as the true Messiah, even as the Word of God incarnate — the Christ, here and ever-present, then and now. John highlights only a few specific moments in Jesus’ life — times when Jesus more fully focused on and explained his relationship to God and the relationship of all of us to God so that his followers are prepared to carry his mission on — forever.

  Is there a discrepancy between the Gospel of John and the synoptics regarding the date Jesus died?
  Our little Bible study group is studying the Gospel of John. We struggled over 5:22 which says that "the Father judgeth no man, but hath committed all judgment unto the Son." Then 8:15 where Jesus says "I judge no man." What does it mean that the Father has committed all judgment unto the Son?
