(Jehovah has graciously given)
The personal glory of the eternal Son of God the Creator, co-equal, co-eternal with the Father whom He revealed, and His love, as the sent One, becoming flesh, full of grace and truth, who ever glorified His Father as the doer of His will until He could cry out “It is finished.” Blessed Lamb of God who shed His precious blood that whosoever believeth on Him might have eternal life and the Holy Spirit, and be with Him in His glory.

At the outset (1:10, 11) He is rejected by the world and His own remnant of Judah! He deals especially with individuals (chapters 3, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11), no parables are given, and all occurs in Judea, thus differing widely from the other gospels.

The buddings of Christianity are especially found in John.
“The disciple whom Jesus loved,” perhaps the youngest and first disciple of the 12 apostles (1:35-40), as he was the last; miraculously escaped out of a caldron of boiling oil in AD. 94, (according to tradition), banished to Patmos but released A.D. 96 and the only apostle that escaped martyrdom; lived to the age of 100.
