The 2018 series is A Tour Through John.

  • Length: 50 days. Units average about 20 minutes, just right if you have to go to work early, or want to listen as you commute. (Each lesson can be downloaded.)
  • Content
    • The scripture (every verse)
    • Commentary
    • Structure of John (the 7 confessions, 7 signs, 7 "I Am" Sayings, the Book of Signs, etc).
    • Prayer (based on the day's reading)
    • Memory verses (from John 1-11, and again from 12-21) -- so we can have them ready on our lips!
  • Ideas for group Bible discussions
  • Optional quiz at end of our study of John 21 -- see how well you know the Word!
  • Insight into difficult topics, like the Trinity, predestination, OT prophecy, and more.
  • This is a great book, as John continually calls us to think and act on the spiritual channel, not the worldly channel. (Even his own disciples often drift into worldly thinking.)
  • Why commit to this?
    • It keeps us focused!
    • It keeps us out of sin!
    • Lets us renew our minds – to gain the mind of Christ (Rom 12:1-2; 1 Cor 2:15).
    • It makes us more evangelistic (Jer 20:7)
    • Because God commands us to meditate on his word daily (Ps 1; Josh 1).
  • Start the year off in a great way, walking with the Lord and letting his word dwell in you (Col 3:16).
