Today’s bible hero is John because he shows us the gift of The Word

Essential Teachers notes:
The introduction to Johns gospel can read a little abstract and symbolic for many. who is this ‘Word’ that John is referring to? What knowledge is he building on and why does he use this convoluted tone as an introduction to a book about a man who talked of sparrows, sheep and stone. This retelling looks at the reasons why John started the book with these now famous lines.
