The Gospel of John, the so-called ‘spiritual gospel,’ at once intrigues and baffles. Its simple and poetic language belies its rich complexity. This course offers a thematic introduction to John, where each week we will read the Gospel through the lens of one or two themes. The overall aim is to be equipped with knowledge and skills to read with greater literary and theological sophistication, so that by the end of the five weeks each of us will have a deepened personal appreciation of the Gospel of John as Christian Scripture. 

This course can be taken as part of the Certificate in Theology, or Certificate in Theology Plus. Essay information will be provided once the course has started.
