What Loves Looks Like
By Stephen Richmond - 7th April 2019
The Apostle John has his own unique take on Jesus’ last days in Jerusalem before and after his crucifixion. John highlights stories and angles that the other gospel writers don’t even mention. John is present at the Last Supper, he is present at the cross and he is with Jesus after resurrection. Against the big demonstration of God’s great love for the world John’s telling of the gospel helps us see some of the intimate and personal ways Jesus shows His love. As He dies Jesus shows us what love looks like.
