"The Gospel of John" Spoken Word (2020)
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God..."
This is a narration project through the entire Gospel of John. The Apostle Paul commanded Timothy, “Until I come, devote yourself to the public reading of Scripture, to exhortation, to teaching (1 Timothy 4:13). We hope this reading of God’s Word can be a blessing to you!
The Apostle John stated his purpose in writing this Gospel: “But these are written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name” (John 20:31).
This Gospel, in the simplest and most beautiful manner, displays the glory of God in the man Jesus and his obedient servitude—leading to the cross—where He died for our sins, and was then raised on the third day for our justification. It is in this Gospel where we hear Jesus’ seven “I Am” declarations, like: “I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger, and whoever believes in me shall never thirst” (John 6:35), or, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live” (John 11:25). We discover the Deity of Jesus as the Word of God who was with God—and who was God—who was made flesh to live among us as the manifestation of God’s love to the world. We see Jesus in the following light: the True Light, the Only Son from the Father, the Only God who is at the Father’s side, the Prophet who was to come into the world, the Savior of the world, the Light of the world, the Good Shepherd, the Door, the Way the Truth and the Life, the Resurrection, the Lamb of God, and the King of the Jews.
“The Gospel of John” is underlaid with piano melodies for praise and honor to God. “Give thanks to the Lord with the lyre; make melody to him with the harp of ten strings! Sing to him a new song; play skillfully on the strings, with loud shouts. For the Word of the Lord is upright, and all his work is done in faithfulness” (Psalm 33:3-4). Indeed the Word of the Lord is upright; and we praise God for His powerful and lifechanging Word! Who can declare it better that God? “So shall my word be that goes out from my mouth; it shall not return to me empty, but it shall accomplish that which I purpose, and shall succeed in the thing for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11). For we learn that “the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart” (Hebrews 4:12). May His words, which are Spirit and Life (John 6:63) fill your heart and refresh your soul, as you listen through “The Gospel of John.”
