Publisher's Summary

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.

Excellent Bible Study

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.

Fantastic In-Depth Study of John

(Suggestion: listen to Mathew, Mark, and Luke before listening to John)
This is a fantastic study of John. Dr. Creasy is very entertaining and knowledgeable about the Bible. He seamlessly weaves in Old Testament references to help you understand John. He also uses topography, geography, and personal anecdotes to really make the story come to life. Since this a lecture, there is audience laughter which makes this even more enjoyable.
Two side notes: 1. Since this is a seminar, there are references to maps which you can't see. This did not detract from my experience. 2. He does say the "s word" in a joke, which did not offend me at all. If you are offended by that word, please do not throw the baby out with the bathwater (for you sake :). You will miss something special if you do throw the baby out with the bathwater.

it's the details

I've listened to several Dr Creasy's Bible books. John was the best. Details that put me there beside the Jordan river, inside the upper room at Martha's and and in the synagogue with Jesus teaching - these windows into that time helped me collate the facts into a cohesive record. Dr Creasy's best lesson is the Gospel of John.

Through John, His favorite!

Through John, you learn so much more about the human side of Jesus. I never saw Him in this intimate a way... Jesus has always seemed too high to reach or understand in all His glory. Too much out of my league to even truly pray too as I figured my words would be just gibberish to His highly developed mind. Through John, you can become friends with Jesus as well as glorify His name. And as always, Bill Creasy teaches The Book in a way all minds can enjoy and understand it.

Not accurate on at least one opinion

The Doctor repeatedly says The Christ did to trust people who believed in His miracles. However John 10:38 indicates otherwise:
New Living Translation
"But if I do his work, believe in the evidence of the miraculous works I have done, even if you don’t believe me. Then you will know and understand that the Father is in me, and I am in the Father.”
He seems to add some insight into scriptures that are often read over; This is appreciated and worthy of "consideration".

I'll be listening to his other Bible studies

Dr Creasy does a great job and really brought the words to life! I used this as a complement while I read through John to get a fuller understanding.

Glorious Bible Study

I love Dr Creasy’s lectures, the words of the Bible, people, places and events really come to life and his expertise as an English Literature professor adds a unique perspective and ability to wrestle with the text when phrases/meaning/translation are in issue. I started listening to these lectures as a non-Christian, but along the way found that my prejudices against the Bible, and the historical people and writers of the Bible were dismantled through education. The stronghold of ignorance collapsed and I became fascinated by the overarching story of this incredible book. I absolutely and thoroughly recommend Dr Creasy as a Bible teacher. As a busy person I listen while I work, and when I return to reading the Bible, it has historical and geographical context and has been expertly linked together by Dr Creasy’s lectures.
