His vision sees far into the mysteries of heaven, opening the gospel with a radiant poem "The Word became Flesh."
John speaks the most about Jesus as the Christ, the divine Son of God.
John sees Jesus as "The Word through whom all things were created, coming down from heaven to dwell on earth."
It is John who speaks of Jesus as God's temple on earth, God's Holy of Holies, the presence of God among us.
John's gospel contains a soaring message that helps humanity share in that presence and rise to heaven in and with Jesus.
John gives us a strongly transcendence Jesus with an emphasis on the pre-existent Word and the incarnation of that Word in human flesh.
John also devotes many chapters showing the fellowship and relationships between Jesus and His disciples.
John emphasises the gift of eternal life through Christ, a gift that begins now to those who respond to Jesus as the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
A striking feature in this gospel is the symbolic use of common things from everyday life to point to spiritual realities, such as the use of water, bread, light, the shepherd and his flock, and the grape and the vine.
