The Gospel of John is the intimate Gospel, says Earl Palmer, because it is the most personal and revealing of all the portraits of Jesus in the New Testament. It is "an intimate journal" of a man who knew Jesus personally, who can tell us not only what Jesus did, but also what he thought and felt. It is the intimate Gospel, as well, because John's aim is to produce in the reader the same faith and trust Jesus called forth in his lifetime. In this stimulating study, Earl Palmer takes us on a fascinating journey through this most personal of narratives, seeking to intepret its historical and theological significance but also to confront the really vital and costly questions it raises for the believer: What does John's narrative about Jesus mean for my life here and now? Included is a study guide to facilitate both individual reading and group discussion.
