If only we could have seen Jesus with our own eyes. How wonderful would that be! How much more faith we would have!
But we can see and hear Jesus. We see him and hear him by meditating on his word. The Bible is not just an ancient book to study but a living window into the very life of Jesus. One way we encounter the living Jesus in the Bible is through the time-tested method of "holy reading" or meditation. This commentary series provides a structure for that encounter with Jesus.
Holy reading involves listening closely to a brief passage of Scripture, reading it repeatedly, praying the words, letting them sink deeply into the heart. It can also be a communal exerience as we listen to God with other believers.
Through meditation on the Gospel of John, we experience the life of Jesus, the Word of God made flesh. Written by one who calls himself "the disciple whom Jesus loved", the Gospel of John paints an intimate portrait of Jesus as one who is intimate with God the Father, who calls disciples to follow him, and who gives signs that point his listeners to God.
