He is the only Gospel writer to give us information about his purpose and sources. He writes for Theophilus, whose name in Greek suggests ‘lover of God’. Theophilus may have been a patron of Luke’s, but we can also take this name to mean that…

The Deep End – ‘The First of His Signs’ This is a familiar story, rich in symbolism. It is the first ‘sign’ recorded in John’s Gospel. These ‘signs’ in John’s Gospel are miracle stories but John prefers to use the term ‘sign’, as they point to something far more than just the miracle itself.
