John the Apostle and friend of Jesus has a unique purpose in writing his Gospel. He states that purpose in John 20:30-31:
And truly Jesus did many other signs in the presence of His disciples, which are not written in this book; but these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing you may have life in His name.
He has a two-fold purpose. One, that you would believe and two, that by believing you would have eternal life in His name.
And this is just the beginning. Want to hear more? Then keep listening.
