The Book of John

When we read the gospel of John, it doesn’t take long for us to see that as a “gospel” it is markedly different from the other three Synoptic accounts.  John wrote about sixty years after Jesus had returned to heaven.  John was concerned about the conduct of his readers.  He desired that they put their salvation to work.  The Spirit directed John to record events of the earthly life of Jesus which would encourage these believers to direct faith at Jesus Christ.  John built his text on the structure of nine signs which Jesus performed: changing water to wine, healing the official’s son, healing the lame man, feeding five thousand, walking upon the water, healing the blind man, raising Lazarus, His own resurrection, and the net full of fish.  These signs were “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).  The gospel is a very simple, and concise message (cf 1 Corinthians 15:1-4).  It does not take a text as large as John to bring one to salvation.  The faith John was encouraging was the faith of believers, not the unsaved.  Believers have eternal life (1 John 5:11-12), but not all believers live out their eternal life.  Eternal life refers to a "quality" of life, rather than just a quantity (ie. everlasting life) as some might think.  For believers to live out their eternal life, they must live by faith in the Son on a moment by moment basis.  God has given us promises related to His Son. We are to believe those promises.  The foundation for some of those promises is seen in these signs which Jesus performed, and elaborated on in His accompanying words.  Directly related to these promises is our receiving from His fullness “the grace” and “the truth” (John 1:17).  As we study John’s account, we will see these two demonstrated in Jesus’ earthly life.  These encourage us to go on believing and to have life in His character.
 

PLEASE NOTE:  When you are listening to these audio files, keep in mind that you might hear the sound of children or of people asking questions during the teaching.  The atmosphere at First Baptist Church is one which encourages families to be together (hence the sounds of children in recordings), and Tim also encourages people to ask questions if something is unclear to them.  You will not find a strict, formal, religious ceremony atmosphere in these Bible teachings.  Also note that due to technical difficulties, some earlier recordings might be more difficult to hear.   We apologize for this; however, newer recordings should have much better sound quality.

OPTION #1 - DOWNLOAD AUDIO:  If you have a slower dial up internet connection, then you might want to consider downloading the audio file to your computer first before listening to it.  Be aware that downloading an audio file of a Bible Study might take 20 minutes or more if you have a slower internet connection.  If you want to download the audio recording onto your computer to listen to later, then follow the following instructions:  Put the onscreen mouse pointer over the "Download Audio" link, click your right mouse button, click on "Save Target As", and then proceed to save the audio file to your computer.

 

OPTION # 2 - LISTEN ONLINE:  You can also listening to streaming audio (without having to download the whole file first) by using this option.  This will allow you to start listening to the audio file right away.  Once you click on the "Listen Online" link, allow your computer a minute or so to initialize the media player and begin playing the streaming audio.  If this option does not work well (because the audio starts and stops frequently), then most likely that means that your internet connection is not fast enough to keep up with the streaming audio.  In that case, you will probably need to consider Option #1, and first download the file completely to your computer before listening.     

 

If you try to listen using Options #1 & #2 and neither one works, then you might need to download a media player capable of playing MP3 audio files.  It is recommended that you first try to play the audio files, since many computers will already have some sort of media player installed.  If for some reason your computer does not already have a media player, then see the notes below for installing one.  In addition, in order to view outlines and notes, you will need to have Adobe Reader on your computer.  Many computers will already have this loaded.  Just click on the link to view notes or outlines and wait for a few minutes while they load (might take longer than a few minutes for a dial up internet users).  If you need to download the Adobe Reader software to your computer, then see the link below.

       

Both Windows PC and Mac users can download Windows Media Player.

 For Mac users that want to use a Macintosh product, then iTunes is another possible choice.

 To view study outlines and notes, you will need to have Adobe Reader.
