The purpose of this gospel, as stated by John himself, is to show that Jesus of Nazareth was Christ, the Son of God, and that believers in him might have eternal life… In the Gospel of John, the central theme is the divine Logos, the word that was with God and that was God.

What was the purpose of the Gospel of John?

  • The faith necessary for salvation during Jesus’ ministry was to believe Jesus was the Christ, the Son of God. John declared Jesus performed many signs (σημεῖον) that he did not record in his gospel. The eight signs he recorded were to prove that Jesus was the Christ and that his readers might have life through Him.
  • Other distinctive themes (and there are more of these in John's gospel than in any of the other three) include a strong emphasis on the benefits of eternal life through following Jesus. Accepting His free gift of salvation is something that begins now in this life already, even if only in part.
