John Chapter 1 (B)

The Gospel According to John - Ch. 1-B

Perhaps you've wondered, "God, what are You like?  Are You there?  Do You know that I exist? Do You care?" You can make pilgrimages to Tibet or Tupelo.  Only one resource reliably answers life's biggest questions -- it's God's love letter to us, the Bible.

John was born into a comfortable life as the son of Zebedee the fisherman.  Zeb's wife was Salome, a sincere follower of Christ who, may have been a sister of Mary, Jesus’ mother.  We know she was present at Christ's crucifixion.  John’s brother was James, also one of Christ's twelve disciples and a fellow member of Jesus' inner circle.
