DAY 266: JOURNEY THROGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR
Today, we conclude our journey through the Gospel of John, with Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection.
Before reading John 19-21, pray for understanding of today’s reading. Read John 19-21. Let’s journey!
The Gospel of John was written by the Apostle John, a beloved disciple of Jesus. The purpose of John’s Gospel is stated in chapter 20. John wrote his Gospel to show that Jesus is the Messiah, and that through that belief, we may come to have life in the name of Jesus.
John 19-21: Today’s reading concludes not only the Gospel of John, but the Gospels of the New Testament, the first four books. Jesus is sentenced to death by cruxifixction by Pilate, as insisted upon by the Jewish leaders. Jesus is crucified and dies. Joseph of Arimathea provides the site where Jesus is to be buried. Jesus’ empty tomb is discovered and Jesus appears to many people, including Simon Peter, who received forgiveness for his earlier denial of Christ. (John 19:1-21:25)
After concluding today’s reading, take some time and consider the following: In today’s reading, how is John showing Jesus as the Messiah? What have you learned about Jesus from today’s reading?
