    John knew very well the physical person, Jesus, who was also God in the flesh. The remaining portions of the Gospel of John record incidents closely related to the closing days of Jesus' earthly ministry. Scholars see the signs as being connected to particular and significant 'sayings' of Jesus — Christological statements that he makes about himself — that are themselves contained in and explained by 'discourses' with other characters in the gospel. By believing these things, a person obtains eternal life For example, the story of Jesus' turning water into wine is interpreted to mean the contrast between the old and the new dispensations.

    As John interprets the story, its deeper meaning is disclosed in a statement that Jesus makes: "I am the resurrection and the life. On the contrary, it presents an interpretation of Jesus that reflects ideas and situations that prevailed in the Christian community toward the end of the first century of the Christian era, a time when Christianity was under attack from several different quarters, including Jews, Romans, skeptics, and others making charges against it. He describes Himself as the vine and His disciples as the branches that sprout from the vine. Beyond this, the emphasis on the individual's relationship with Jesus in the Gospel has suggested its usefulness for contemplation on the life of Christ. John knew very well the physical person, Jesus, who was also God in the flesh. Unlike the synoptic gospels, Jesus' death is seen as something that glorifies him.

    These are helpful keys to appreciating and understanding the living Christ in His ministry to us today. We may be sure that the language used is that of John rather than of Jesus, for it contains the same type of statements used throughout the Gospels, and there are places where Jesus is referred to in the third person, but this is a relatively unimportant item. A disciple of Christ is a "learner" of Christ; on this blog I intend to share what I'm learning in my relationship with Christ. Some scholars on the weaker-sacramental side of the spectrum deny that there are any sacramental allusions in these passages or in the gospel as a whole, while others see sacramental symbolism applied to other subjects in these and other passages.
