The Gospel of John is one of the earliest accounts of Jesus’s ministry. the beginning of John states that in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God and the word was God, then John later describes Jesus as the word made flesh basically saying Jesus was God. This is very important because many will claim that Jesus was just a prophet but the gospel of Luke overtly states that Jesus is messiah and God . the purpose of the Book of John is stated in the end, the story is written so that you may come to believe that Jesus is the messiah and that by believing you may have life in his name. The Claim of John is that Jesus and the Father are one, and goes on to support it with the words of Jesus’s and miracles He performed throughout the gospel of John.
