Zeal - The Book of John

The Gospel according to John was written for those asking the question, ‘Who is Jesus?’ As the last of four gospel accounts, John knew there was still more to say. This disciple knew the transformative power of Jesus’ love and His zealousness for us to experience it. These words were written so that we would believe that Jesus is the Saviour of the world, the Son of the Living God, and that by believing we would step into full, abundant, and transformed life in His name.
