I had the fun of opening a series of sermons on John’s Gospel for St Mary’s, Sileby last Sunday, 5 March, and they’ve made the sermon available on their Youtube channel. So I thought I’d share it with my blog readers. I begin by looking at John’s purpose in writing, focusing on John 20:30-31, and then turn to look at how John opens his Gospel in a way which prepares for an anticipates what he will say in the whole book. Comments most welcome.
