John 1-4


  • Read John 1-4

Consider these questions as you read:

  1. In traditional translations, John’s Gospel begins with a majestic statement about Jesus and his mission (1.1-18). Did anything strike you differently as you read it in this version?
  2. Did anything stand out to you in the narratives about John the Baptizer (passages featuring him include 1.6, 15, 19-39; 3.22-30; and the very beginning of chapter 4)?
  3. Which of these familiar stories seemed to capture your attention more in this reading: Jesus’ interaction with Nicodemus (3.1-21) or Jesus’ interaction with the woman at the well (4.1-42)? Why do you think that is?
