Answer: Yes, it is explicitly mentioned that Jesus loved someone. In John 13:23, it is written, Now there was one of his disciples reclining on Jesus' bosom, whom Jesus loved. ἦν δέ ἀνακείμενος εἷς τῶν μαθητῶν αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ κόλπῳ τοῦ Ἰησοῦ ὃν ἠγάπα ὁ Ἰησοῦς TR, 1550 This particular disciple is often referred to as "the beloved disciple." However, ...

It's talking about salvation.. There is an opinion that "Light" refers to creation, however people forget Christ is Light. So anything in the New Testament dealing with light, refers to Christ and Salvation. Added: If you look at 1 John 1:5 its says This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declared unto you, that God is light, and in ...

There is a big difference between 'believe in him' and 'believe in his name'. To 'believe in him' is the foundation to salvation. To 'believe in his name' is the basis for taking your authority in Christ Jesus. In John 14 it says: 12"Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he ...

The phrase is definitively Johannine, occurring five times in four verses, all in Johannine texts. The Greek syntax, at a minimum, consists of a conjugation of the verb πιστεύω, the preposition εἰς, and the noun τὸ ὄνομα.1 John 1:12 But as many as received him, he gave power to them to become sons of God, [even] to those who believe in his name. ...

In the languages of the Scriptures, the words for "name" had a concrete meaning of that by which a person was called (e.g. Matthew 1:21), and also a figurative meaning of the renown, reputation, and character of the person (e.g. Matthew 20:22). From Strong's lexicon, (figuratively) the manifestation or revelation of someone's character, i.e. as ...

Search on YouTube 'David Pawson John Part 1 (20min video)' and you will find the truth. In brief (forgive me I'm not an eloquent writer!) John was most loved by Jesus of all the disciples. He wrote the gospel of John but when you read that book he humbly omits his name because the focus is on Jesus' character. John was the only apostle who wasn't killed and ...

The text of John 19:28-29 does not state that Christ asked for a drink. It says: "I thirst." Because there is no record of Christ asking for help or complaining of pain while scourged and crucified, and because his other statements on the cross are about his purpose/a future time/prophecy, I don't think it's accurate to assume that he said "I thirst" ...

In "The Science of Crucifixion", Dr Cathleen Shrier, professor of Biology at Azusa Pacific University explains the biological mechanism driving Jesus thirst, stating: "...flogging leaves the skin on Jesus’ back in long ribbons. By this point, He has lost a great volume of blood which causes His blood pressure to fall and puts Him into shock. The human ...

The oldest manuscript we have of John is in the Codex Sinaiticus. In both verses, it says, “life eternal.” It’s in Koine Greek, on papyrus, dated 350 AD. I photographed the two passages from the Codex Sinaiticus. John 4:36 is here: (pdf) John 6:40 is here: (pdf) Scroll down to see the actual, handwritten manuscript. For John 4:36, go to the second ...

Because the question asked the original author's intent it seemed that only the author himself could provide an authoritative answer so I took the liberty of writing to the author and asking him to respond. Here is his response: Writing on John 12.41 it seemed to me clear that the language about seeing his glory and speaking of him was a reference to ...

I have read a few sermons that I believe may be a sound reason as to why Malchus name was mentioned in the book of John. I believe that the 4 Gospels of the New Testament correlate to the depth of our relationship with Christ. Our spiritual walk, with John being the level in which we walk in the love and revelation that God desires we walk in. With the story ...
