John 7–9: Jesus & God the Father

Read the Bible in 2011Week 34: Saturday

Jesus said to them, “Truly, truly, I say to you, before Abraham was born I am.”
John 8:58

Saturday’s Bible reading is John 7–9. In my post on the first two chapters of John I gave you an introduction to the book and below is a table of things to look for as you read. Other than that, in light of John’s purpose for writing, if you’ve never read John’s Gospel about Jesus Christ, I want you to discover it on your own.

“Therefore many other signs Jesus also performed in the presence of the disciples, which are not written in this book; but these have been written so that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing you may have life in His name.”
John 20:31–32
