Sermons in John focus on the testament according to John, one of the twelve apostles. John is famous for being The Baptist, or the first one to baptize followers with water. Before Christ came, people would ask John if he was a prophet or even the Messiah, but he always denied it, saying that he knew the Son of God was coming.

Miracles as Sources for Sermons in John

In the first Book of John, there are descriptions of many of the miracles performed by Jesus, in addition to Christ's own words about being the son of God. John was with Christ from very early on, as he was one of the first three to become an apostle. John 2 discusses the first of the miracles, Jesus' changing water to wine. John 6 relays the miracles of Jesus feeding 5000 hungry people with only five loaves of bread and two fish, as well as his walking on water.

John 4 is responsible for the phrase "living water," which has been used in many churches to refer to Christ. When Jesus asked a Samaritan woman for a drink and she spoke literally of the well from which it would be drawn, Christ responded in verses 13 and 14 with the metaphor, "Everyone who drinks this water will be thirsty again, but whoever drinks the water I give him will never thirst. Indeed, the water I give him will become in him a spring of water welling up to eternal life." The water imagery here makes sense given the role of John as the originator of baptism.

Sermons in John abound, as there are stories of Jesus that can be discussed, or stories of the role of John himself. The gospels all make excellent topics for sermons.
