Introduction to John 约翰福音简介

Updated: Apr 8, 2018

John20:31 says “But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.”

约翰福音20:31“但记这些事要叫你们信耶稣是基督,是神的儿子,并且叫你们信了他,就可以因他的名得生命。”

John states very plainly that he wrote to prove that Jesus is the Christ, the promised Messiah (for the Jews), and the Son of God (for the Gentiles), and to lead believers into a life of fellowship with Him. The theme of John’s gospel is the deity of Jesus Christ, the “one and only Son of God”. This was indicated from the opening eighteen verses, the prologue, that although all things were made through Him, and in Him was life, yet He became flesh and dwelt among us. No man could see God;therefore, Christ came to declare Him. Unlike the synoptic Gospels, no genealogy is recorded here (as given by reflecting Matthew and Luke) ;and no Prayer account of His birth because He was “in the beginning”; nothing about His boyhood; nothing about His temptation. Jesus is here presented as Christ the Lord –He is called “the Word”, the Creator, the One and Only Son of God, the Lamb of God, the “I Am”, born to die as God’s sacrifice for human sin. As we read the book of John, we can look out for the witnesses, miracles and “I Am” declarations that affirms the deity of Jesus Christ. Let us also be encouraged by His answers for a life beyond (14:2-3) and the promise of the Holy Spirit (chapters 14-16). And let us be inspired to serve in love (chapter 20-21) as we prepare the way of the Lord in 2018.


约翰很清楚表明他写作的目的是要证明耶稣是基督—

—是那应许的弥赛亚(为犹太人),是神的儿子(为外邦人),是引导信徒进入与祂相交的生命。

约翰福音的主题是耶稣基督的神性,祂是“神的独生子”。在前18节的序文里表露无疑——万物是借着他造的;生命在他里头;道成了肉身,住在我们中间;从来没有人看见神,只有在父怀里的独生子将他表明出来。

与其他福音书(符类福音)不同,这里没有家谱记录(Reflections如马太福音及and路加Prayer福音)反;没思有祷耶告稣诞生的记录,因为祂从“起初”就已经存在了;没有祂的童年记录;没有祂受试探记录。在这里耶稣是主基督;是“道”;是创造者;是上帝的独生子;是神的羔羊;是“我是”,并且为世人的罪受死赎罪。

当我们阅读约翰福音时,我们要特别留意“见证”、

“神迹”、“我是”的字眼,它们声明及肯定了耶稣

基督的神性。让我们同时也被祂对生命的答案(14:2-3)

及圣灵的应许(14-16章)所鼓舞。最后,也让我们在

2018年“为主预备道路”时,不断被启迪在爱中服事

(20-21章)。
