A Journal of Love

Meditations on John's Gospel and Letters

To enter into the Gospel of John and John's three letters is to embark on an adventure, the story of a great and unsurpassable love, the Love that John discovered was God's name. In following Jesus, John discovers that there is indeed an edge and urgency to what Jesus says and does. The edge is this: we, too, can be light. We can believe. We can drink the living water. And the urgency is present as well: we are also called to follow and serve. We are called to receive the Spirit. A Journal of Love is meant to be an encounter, a felt sense of what it must have been--and can be now--to live that love.

The first of von Speyr's scriptural commentaries, focusing on her reflections on the first five chapters of John and the beginning of the public life of Our Lord. She shares moving meditations on such profound and dramatic scenes as the witness of John the Baptist, the call of the disciples, the wedding at Cana, the cleansing of the money-changers in the temple, the Samaritan woman, etc. The combination of the Scripture verses and her meditations provide rich nourishment for prayer and spiritual reading. This series is particularly important because the spirituality of St. John, the Apostle of Divine Love, was the central source of von Speyr's own inspiration and spiritual life.

Meditations on According to John

Exercises in Biblical Theology

The gospel of John, titled simply "According to John" in ancient manuscripts, contains some of the simplest language in the New Testament. The Greek of this book is so simple that it is often used in teaching beginning students to read New Testament Greek. Pastors and teachers often recommend the book as a good starting point for new Chrustians reading the Bible for the first time. But the simple vocabulary and structure belies an extraordinary spiritual depth. While there are lessons to be learned from an initial surface reading, diligent seekers will find incredible depths. Understanding these deeper lessons requires one to see the book as a whole and understand the intricate pattern of connections between the various parts. Verse by verse and even passage by passage study can be misleading. New Testament scholar Herold Weiss spent a considerable amount of time searching for the best way to open up the treasures of this gospel to non-scholars and settled on a series of meditations on various phrases or events related in the book. In each meditation he ties the specific theme to related passages and imagery throughout the gospel. His masterful presentation will open your eyes and mind to new insights into the fourth gospel, early Christianity, and its application to 21st century Christianity.

And in the midst the Lamb was standing His work was finest to the end. With trumpet sounds of praise ascending to Him who to the earth was sent His work was done. The only Son, He paid the price, so men could rise from chains of sin, and enter in the Holy place, by saving grace. Lets join in heavens celebration, Lets all present our loud ovation.

As it was true in the day of the Apostle Paul, so it is true today; we have many instructors, but NOT MANY FATHERS. As a people we are hungry for the kind and gentle leadership of a Christian father. At the same time, we are in need of the spiritual wisdom and power of an apostolic leader. This is true not only for Gods people in general, but especially for His pastors and ministers. We have been given such a man in John Dean. He is a man of extraordinary gifting, extensive experience, and most especially - a fathers heart.

The God Who Kneels is a meditative journey in John 13. The Apostle John opens the door and invites us into the upper room to relive the words and actions of Jesus. He writes us into the scene and gives us a seat at the table. On Thursday night, Jesus gave his followers two simple object lessons during the evening meal. He washed their feet and he broke bread. These two enduring acts go a long way in defining the mission of God and the body of Christ. They merge real hospitality and deep sacrament. The towel and the basin, and the bread and the cup, signify the essence of Jesus's kingdom strategy. The disciples missed the meaning of Jesus's message the first time around. Like them we need a fresh experience of the upper room to grasp the Savior's humility and glory. Less than twenty-four hours before the crucifixion Jesus offered his disciples a vivid parable of the atonement and a true picture of discipleship. This forty-day Lenten series is a close reading of the biblical text revealing the significance of the God who kneels for today's discipleship.
