The bible exist of many books.
The first part is called 'Old Testament', the second part 'New testament'.
The gospel according to John is the fourth book of the New Testament.
In the Old Testament we find the story of the creation and the sin fall, but foremost we find the story of Gods people Israel.
The New Testament begins with what we call: the four gospels, the fourth was written by John.
Gospel means 'happy message'.
These gospels tells us who Jesus is and how He lived on this earth, died, but also how He became alive again.
All four gospels have their own character. John shows us very clearly the love of God for mankind.
Furthermore there are stories in the New Testament about the apostles (followers of Jesus) and letters which are send to Christians. Those Christians gathered in groups, which were called congregations or churches.
At the end there is the book Revelations. Jesus shows there i.e. the future. This is not an easy book, because it is written -like some people say- in a kind of code. Much is however, especially after some bible study, not very difficult to understand.
