Dr. Bill Creasy presents the gospel according to John with insight and warmth. This gospel gives a personal account of the life of Jesus, from his works of public ministry, to his death, burial, and resurrection. Dr. Creasy, a professor of English literature, gives a nuanced and smart interpretation of the text. With his great stage presence, Dr. Creasy's lecture makes for easy listening. Because it is live, though, a few moments apply only to the audience present. Still, Dr. Creasy is so engaging that curious listeners will benefit from this series as much as devoted Christians.
Written considerably later that the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke), John takes a very different approach to the Gospel story. Traditionally attributed to the "Beloved Apostle" John, this Gospel doesn’t give us yet another version of the events in Jesus’ public ministry; John illustrates what those events mean in light of 60 years of reflection upon them. The Gospel according to John is a brilliant book, and it offers us a profoundly intimate glimpse into the person and work of Jesus Christ. Listen closely as Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy reveals the nuances of this amazing work. This book is a must have for your audio library.

I also posted this on Amazon.com. This series contains the audio from class lectures by Dr. Bill Creasy.
Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.
As explained in the opening lesson on Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.
According to the syllabus I received from Dr. Creasy (he sometimes deviates from this in class), John is the ninth in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by Deuteronomy and followed by Joshua. John has 21 chapters, and the study is comprised of 17 lessons. Total time - 11 hours, 43 minutes.
Note: Dr. Creasy does give a little introduction to Joshua in the last lesson.
Yes, DR. Creasy's skill and knowledge of the text
The geography lesson within the bible study
Dr. Bill s an expert the history, the archaeology ,and what it was like to live and different times. There is enough gravitas there for senior Christians and newbies. Hetakes teaching the word of God seriously and approaches it with humor!
Dr. Bill states what the Lord says,, and then might go off into various interpretations but iin the end he is word-based always word based!
He makes the Bible fun!
Dr. Bill has opened up the Bible to me and thousands of others! He is a gem if I did not get to meet him on earth than I will certainly meet him in heaven in which I will give him a big hug!
That not only goes for Daniel but for other books of the Bible! I originally started listening to his series in preparation of precepts upon precepts studying revelation! and it made it a whole lot easier on me! I am ones and those who actually understands revelation!
I wish there were more people out there like Dr. Bill and there would be more Christians without a doubt!
