Signs of Life

The Gospel of John pulsates with life. Jesus is presented as the source of life. “In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.” (John 1:4) His mission is that we might “have life and have it to the full.” (John 10:10) Jesus declares to his disciples, “Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you sent.” (John 17:3) The Gospel of John is written so that we might believe and have “life in his name.” (John 20:30-31) Like a skillful artist John paints images throughout the book that highlight the kind of life Jesus offers. These images appear and then fade into the background only to reappear later in different ways. John also emphasizes the miracles of Jesus. He calls them “signs.” A sign points beyond itself to something or someone more. This fall, as we work though the first half of the Gospel of John, we will pay particular attention to the images John paints as they ultimately lead us to Christ who offers abundant and meaningful life both now and for eternity.
