Description

Preachers tend to prefer pithy parables and simple stories from the life of Christ. Yet John’s narratives can stretch on for dozens of verses and across chapter boundaries.  How should the preacher handle the challenges of preaching from John’s Gospel?  As well as the lengthy narratives, what should we make of the prologue, the conversations, the thematic threads, and so on?
