Letters of John

God is love. For some people, that’s all they know about the Bible. But God’s love has a specific meaning, and it’s demonstrated most by God sending his Son, Jesus, to reconcile us to God. To learn more about God’s love for us, and how we should love him and love each other, join us as we look at the letters of the apostle John. John, one of Jesus’ original followers, tells us that he was an eyewitness to Jesus’ life, teachings, miracles, death, and resurrection. He tells us what it means to be a Christian and how we can know we’re children of God. And he tells us about God’s love.
