Our fourth apostle is up this week, John, the younger brother of James, who we studied last week. John is often described as the “great author” of the group, as the human author of the gospel that bears his name as well as three epistles.
John shares the temperament of his brother, the dynamic duo of “sons of thunder”. But there is some uniqueness about his personality that you’ll learn from reading this week’s chapter. John outlives all the others, which is one aspect that makes him unique. More importantly, perhaps, is that to John, things were very much “black and white”. He was very passionate about his ministry, his calling, and therefore has little tolerance for the “gray areas” of our lives.
Focus your reading on Chapter 5: John-The Apostle of Love.
