Editorial Reviews

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.

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.

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.

Foul Language Alert

For the most part, I have bought and enjoyed several book in this series by Dr. Creasy. As other reviewers have noted, he does sometimes go off on a tangent with personal stories that can drag on for several minutes but he does present an interesting takes on the various books of the Bible. I was floored though today, while he was discussing the disciples question of whose sin caused the man to be born blind, instead of quoting what Jesus actually said per the text, uttered an expletive...I assume as a joke. Extremely poor judgement by Dr. Creasy and even greater misjudgment by Logos to not edit it out. I will not be back. A real shame because I enjoyed them and learned a lot...but, if you are going to advertise a study as a way to grow in Christ, I will seek wholesome material, not crudeness.

these are all great

Any additional comments?

I learn something with every study. Dr Creasy has so much knowledge of the Bible, the region where each story takes place, and the historical events that take place at the same time; it's a pleasure to listen. I never knew the anguish that Peter went through for denying Christ until listening to this. Also, Dr Creasy explains why Christ asked Peter "do you love me..." three times. The whole thing was very enlightening and highly recommended.
