Bible Reading Plan | June 4, 2023



The Book of John is generally considered that last of the four Gospels to be written down. As such, it has the most theological reflection. The Apostle John is an old man at this point. He has had time to think about the purpose of all that Jesus was and is. The other Gospels record the “content” of what Jesus did and said. John attempts to explain the “meaning” of His actions and teachings. With this in mind, notice the difference in the way John introduces Jesus in His Gospel:


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God—children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:1-14)
