Gospel of John

Bible Study

The purpose of this study: This brief Bible study is designed to bring a person through God’s simple plan of salvation using only the Gospel of John. When a Gospel of John is handed out to a person, it is a good idea to give the person this study along with it. The study was written in such a way (question/answer format) that the person can see for themselves what the Bible really says about who Jesus Christ is, what He has done for us and the necessity of putting our faith in Him.

For the person doing this study: Please answer the following questions by looking up the Bible verses which are given, all of which can be found in the Gospel of John. It is best to use the King James Version. If you wish you may send this study to us and we would be happy to correct it for you and send you additional Bible study materials. Our address:
