John’s sign off

April 21st, 2009

I love the way John signs off his gospel. In John 21:25 he says, “Jesus did many other things as well. If every one of them were written down, I suppose that even the whole world would not have room for the books that would be written”.

In John (and the other gospels) we see Jesus was a real man of action. He was always busy preaching, teaching, healing, praying, serving, counselling, mentoring, travelling and sometimes confronting.

It is amazing to think that what is recorded in the John and the other gospels is only a fraction of what Jesus actually did in His public and private ministry. The thought that there wouldn’t be enough books to record it all shows the amazing impact Jesus had while He walked amongst us!
