"When the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all the truth." - John 16:13 "He who saw this has testified so that you also may believe. His testimony is true, and he knows he is telling the truth." - John 19:35 With time and experience comes wisdom. John, the longest-surviving of the apostles, recorded in his Gospel a portrait of Jesus that displays the depth of years of reflection on who Jesus is and what he means to the world. Writing in light of the philosophies of his day, John describes Jesus as the incarnate Word, the divine Logos, the embodiment of all truth and wisdom. In this last volume of the Biblical Imagination Series, Michael Card completes his work on the four Gospels. He shows how John stands alongside the other Gospel writers to fill out the picture of Jesus' divine identity, with stories and sayings of Jesus not recorded by the others. This Jesus reorients our understanding of ourselves and the world around us, offering us nothing less than the way, the truth and the life. Like John before him, Card has written these words so that we may better believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing we have life in his name.

Review quote

"Card's historical scene-setting, rich descriptions, biblical cross-connections, and personal reflections invite us into the book in a fresh and unexpected way. Scripture and people and meaning come to life to intrigue, inspire, and transform. It's like having a personal Bible study accompanied by a trusted pastor who anticipates your questions and both answers them and encourages you to step into the narrative and experience the story as a participant versus simply a listener/reader. . . . As with all books in the series, John: The Gospel of Wisdom is highly recommended for both personal, group, or team study."--Worship Leader, September/October 2014
