This study has 15 sessions, incorporating an introductory session and 14 lessons. The last 3 sessions cover the Johannine letters, making it possible to adapt the study to 12 sessions by concentrating the study only on the Gospel of John. The Study Set includes a Study Guide by Little Rock Scripture Study Staff and the New Collegeville Bible Commentary, The Gospel According to John and the Johannine Letters, by Scott M. Lewis (Liturgical Press).

Scott M. Lewis, SJ, STD, is associate professor of New Testament at Regis College, Toronto, Ontario, and is engaged in retreat ministry. He is the author of What Are They Saying About New Testament Apocalyptic (Paulist Press).

Written in a poetic and symbolic style, John's Gospel tells the life story of Jesus, the incarnate Word of God. It begins with his heavenly existence and his descent into the world. It follows Jesus through his public ministry of 'signs' that lead to his passion, death, resurrection, and ultimate ascent to the 'glory' of his heavenly Father. Many of Jesus' miracles and teachings in John appear in no other gospel and what is common to John and any of the synoptic gospels (Matthew, Mark and Luke) is always told in a distinctive fashion by John. John places a special emphasis on Jesus' commandment to 'Love one another as I love you' (John 15:12).
