John 20:30-31

Continuing our journey through the gospel of John

30 Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, carcasa iphone 6 negro which are not recorded in this book.31 But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, telefon samsung carcasa metalica the Son of God, ugg classic mini and that by believing you may have life in his name

Two huge truths in this passage.

First, adidas superstar soldes there is so much more to Christ than what is recorded in the Scriptures.

The gospel of John also ends with this statement

21:25 Jesus did many other things as well. adidas ultra boost If every one of them were written down, carcasa galaxy a5 2016 I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written.

Even in Christ’s short physical life on earth the world cannot contain all that Christ accomplished (though I wonder how that would apply in a digital age)

How much more would there be to the God of all eternity that is not recorded in the Scriptures alone?

Secondly, without taking one bit of the Scriptures importance away, carcasa spate samsung j5 2015 John says that what is written in this book is that you may believe that Jesus is the Son of God, carcasa iphone 7 superman and that you might have life in his name.

The Gospel of John is a story of the life of Christ so that you might believe and in turn find unending abundant life. * note this doesn’t refer to life some time later only,
