PREFACE

I.

This little book aims to be a help to the study of the Gospel of John. It endeavors to combine two things, a study of the Gospel as a drama of unfolding faith and unbelief and a personal meditation on its spiritual lessons for life. After two or three introductory questions and an outline of the argument of the Gospel, the text is taken up section by section. These sections are numbered. There are one hundred in all. If a class desires to cover the book in ten lessons, each lesson should cover approximately ten sections; if in twenty lessons, each should cover five; if in fifty lessons, each lesson should cover two.

In each section the text of the American Standard Revised version is given first, then some suggestive comment which should be enlarged and supplemented, and then follow some questions for personal reflection and for discussion in the class. These questions are not at all meant to be exhaustive. They are merely suggestive. The student should master the content of each paragraph of the Gospel so that at the end he can review in his memory the whole story of the Gospel. To this end each lesson should include a quick review of the substance of the Gospel from the beginning. 2. Each section should be viewed and grasped in its relation to the whole scheme and argument of the Gospel. The student should refer constantly to the analysis of the Gospel on pages 19–22, and to the fuller analysis of each section on the half-title pages preceding it. 3. The lessons of each section should be taken home into our hearts.

The two best books on the Gospel from which help has been constantly drawn and freely used are Westcott's Commentary on the Gospel of John and Dods' volumes on John in the Expositor's Bible.

All references, except where otherwise indicated, are to the Gospel of John. In the Bible text the exact typog.
