The Gospel of John is the fourth of the canonical gospels and was written anonymously, although it recognizes an unknown "disciple whom Jesus loved" as the author of its passages.

The writings included in John appear to be involved with matters of the church–synagogue discussion at the period of its creation. It is important that in John, the people appear to define themselves mainly in distinction to Judaism, rather than as part of a broader Christian identity. Though Christianity began as a movement within Judaism, it increasingly departed from Judaism because of common disagreement between the two religions.

Likely, the most well-known verse from John is 3:16 " For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." Discover more popular Bible verses from the Book of John below!
