Summary: What happens when you pull John's Gospel out from the shadow of the other three and give its author a voice of his own? What will John have to say? Matthew grew up under Roman oppression, living with the dream of a conquering Messiah arriving soon on the clouds. John the Apostle had promised this in a letter, the book of Revelation. However, as a adult fifteen years later, Matthew meets up with John and Hears another story, a different story-a story that must be told. John is dying, and wishes to dictate a new Gospel. A Gospel of universal love, returning once more to the inspired message of his beloved Teacher from so Many Years ago. The Bible, author Lee Harmon explains, is a collection of individual writings, compiled over a thousands years, with the author of each one expressing his unique opinion. Harmon reminds us that the book of John is the "one gospel claiming eyewitness testimony," and so if John seems to contradict the earlier gospels, perhaps that's because he is "determined to steer us in the proper direction."

What happens if we pull John's Gospel out from the shadow of the other three, and grant John a mind of his own? What will he have to say? Why does this gospel deviate so drastically from the theology of the others? Could this really be the reminiscing of an original apostle, sixty years after the death of Jesus? Were Christians finally being made privy to the direct teachings and miracles of the Son of God?
Listen in as John finally dictates his version of the Jesus story to a Gentile scribe and a disheartened fellow Jew.
In this astonishing and controversial verse-by-verse examination of the Fourth Gospel, you'll learn to appreciate John's contribution to Christianity in a surprising new way. I guarantee, you've never read John's Gospel like this before!
