Do you love the Gospel of John? This question hardly necessitates an answer. So many believers treasure the Gospel of John for its beautiful simplicity and approachability. Verses from John's writings have been inscribed into us: "For God so loved the world..." (3:16), "I have come that they may have life..." (10:10), "I am the resurrection and the life..." (11:25). These verses are so familiar and beloved to us, but there is a profundity behind the simple language of John that we might miss if we do not see the central thought of the Gospel of John.

In Him
was life,
and the life
was the
light of
men.
John 1:4
Since v. 3 refers to the creation in Gen. 1, life here should refer to the life signified by the tree of life in Gen. 2. This is confirmed by the fact that in Rev. 22 John mentions the tree of life. Since life is in Him, He is life (11:25; 14:6), and He came that man might have life (10:10b). The introduction to this Gospel is composed of this entire chapter; it begins with life (v. 4) and ends with building (vv. 42, 51), that is, with the house of God. Hence, it is an introduction to life and building.
