John Study Guide

“The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not overcome it.”


This light shines in our dark world because God has come near. John’s Gospel tells us what happened when God became flesh and made his dwelling among us. As God encountered broken people. As God demonstrated his authority over sickness and sin. As God revealed his glory in our dark world. In the person of Jesus, we have seen God’s glory, full of grace and truth. Join us as we hear from John’s Gospel, and behold the glory of the God who is.


These studies are designed so that groups of all kinds and sizes can spend time together in God’s Word, even while separated physically. We expect that most people will work through them online, discussing God’s Word and encouraging each other to live in light of it. You could work through them with another church member, a few people, or as a group. Many of our community groups and Bible studies will work through these studies.

How to Use the Study Guide

You are free to use these studies in whatever way you find helpful. A suggested way of getting the most from them is to:

  • Read
    Read the passage at home by yourself and try to answer the questions in the discussion guide. At the end of each study, write down things you would particularly like to share about the passage with your group or questions you have.

  • Discuss
    Meet with others over Zoom or another platform to discuss the passage, working through the questions in the discussion guide and discussing what this means for you. (For instructions on setting up Zoom: redeemerdubai.com/zoom-help-guide)

  • Pray for One Another
    Make sure you pray for those you meet with, both for things that flow from the passage and for particular needs in each others lives.

  • Listen to the Sermon
    Join us on Fridays for our in-person gatherings to hear the accompanying sermon for each study. Alternatively, the sermons are available on our YouTube channel: redeemerdubai.com/john-series.
