John the apostle, the last of the original twelve, writes the final and most spiritual of the four Gospels. His intention is to clearly announce that Jesus is the eternal Son of God who has come in the flesh to redeem the world. This volume unpacks and explains the beautiful and rich signs and symbols that John used so that "you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name."
