Abstract

The personal encounters between Jesus and various individuals as recorded in John’s Gospel have long fascinated and inspired readers. The Evangelist tells how Jesus met with different types of people including his mother, a religious leader, a marginalised and unhappy woman, a condemned woman, a blind man, a grieving family and even a Roman governor. In each case he gently but powerfully challenged them to begin a personal journey, to move forward on the way to faith. In this series of studies which originated as sermons Ken Manley invites attentive reflection on these gospel stories as a powerful way for modern readers to begin or move forward on their own journeys on the way to faith, not only to learn about Jesus but to be transformed by him.
