In the Beginning Was the Word

Series: The Gospel of John Year-Long Series – Published: Sunday, 20 Jan 2019

Hosted by Adriel Sanchez Craig Marshall Craig Parton Shane Rosenthal

Why does the Gospel of John begin with this strange concept of the Word of God who was “with God” and yet somehow also “was God”? Some have tried to argue that the author of this text attempted to borrow concepts from Greek philosophy in order to appeal to his largely Gentile readers. Others push back against this idea, saying that John’s approach is entirely consistent with Jewish beliefs and expectations. On this program the hosts will discuss the opening of John’s Gospel and will seek to interpret it in the light of its early first century Jewish context.
