Dr. Bill Creasy presents the gospel according to John with insight and warmth. This gospel gives a personal account of the life of Jesus, from his works of public ministry, to his death, burial, and resurrection. Dr. Creasy, a professor of English literature, gives a nuanced and smart interpretation of the text. With his great stage presence, Dr. Creasy's lecture makes for easy listening. Because it is live, though, a few moments apply only to the audience present. Still, Dr. Creasy is so engaging that curious listeners will benefit from this series as much as devoted Christians.
Written considerably later that the Synoptic Gospels (Matthew, Mark, and Luke), John takes a very different approach to the Gospel story. Traditionally attributed to the "Beloved Apostle" John, this Gospel doesn't give us yet another version of the events in Jesus' public ministry; John illustrates what those events mean in light of 60 years of reflection upon them. The Gospel according to John is a brilliant book, and it offers us a profoundly intimate glimpse into the person and work of Jesus Christ. Listen closely as Logos Bible Study's Dr. Bill Creasy reveals the nuances of this amazing work. This book is a must have for your audio library.

"makes you feel as if you're there"
you can almost smell the desert air he is an excellent teacher thank you dr. Creasy
"Excellent Bible Study"
I also posted this on Amazon.com. This series contains the audio from class lectures by Dr. Bill Creasy.
Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.
As explained in the opening lesson on Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.
According to the syllabus I received from Dr. Creasy (he sometimes deviates from this in class), John is the ninth in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by Deuteronomy and followed by Joshua. John has 21 chapters, and the study is comprised of 17 lessons. Total time - 11 hours, 43 minutes.
Note: Dr. Creasy does give a little introduction to Joshua in the last lesson.
"Through John, His favorite! "
Through John, you learn so much more about the human side of Jesus. I never saw Him in this intimate a way... Jesus has always seemed too high to reach or understand in all His glory. Too much out of my league to even truly pray too as I figured my words would be just gibberish to His highly developed mind. Through John, you can become friends with Jesus as well as glorify His name. And as always, Bill Creasy teaches The Book in a way all minds can enjoy and understand it.
"these are all great"
I learn something with every study. Dr Creasy has so much knowledge of the Bible, the region where each story takes place, and the historical events that take place at the same time; it's a pleasure to listen. I never knew the anguish that Peter went through for denying Christ until listening to this. Also, Dr Creasy explains why Christ asked Peter "do you love me..." three times. The whole thing was very enlightening and highly recommended.
"What a detailed explanation of John"
I enjoyed listening and reading along with Dr Creasy. He makes the Bible so enjoyable and he puts you back in time as if you were there. Thank you! I would not be able to get through 1 book in the Bible without you help
"Love Dr Creasy ! *****"
I can't get enough of these amazing lectures. Dr Creasy's explanations of events are full of beautiful descrition. I feel like I'm right there with our Lord and the apostles. Ripe with biblically accurate details, his lectures are just thrilling to listen to. My understanding of the scriptures and how the whole Bible all fits together has grown and grown through Dr Creasy's teaching. He has a genuine gift for teaching and an obvious joyful love for Christ. I wish I could give ten stars!
"learn so much from Dr Creasy"
I only wish Bill could come to the east coast. I would love to attend a live class.
His knowledge of the bible is astounding.
"Excellent Bible study!"
Bill Creasy and j.Vernoon McGee are that two top Bible teachers. I have learned so much not only of scripture, but translation of agree and Latin. I wish you woul offer a complete set of the individual OT and NT books.
I have the one year study and John, Roman.s, but Retired and 100 percent.
"Wow, what a tour of the Gospel of John"
Yes, DR. Creasy's skill and knowledge of the text
The geography lesson within the bible study
"Dr. Bill headed out of the park with this one"
Dr. Bill s an expert the history, the archaeology ,and what it was like to live and different times. There is enough gravitas there for senior Christians and newbies. Hetakes teaching the word of God seriously and approaches it with humor!
Dr. Bill states what the Lord says,, and then might go off into various interpretations but iin the end he is word-based always word based!
He makes the Bible fun!
Dr. Bill has opened up the Bible to me and thousands of others! He is a gem if I did not get to meet him on earth than I will certainly meet him in heaven in which I will give him a big hug!
That not only goes for Daniel but for other books of the Bible! I originally started listening to his series in preparation of precepts upon precepts studying revelation! and it made it a whole lot easier on me! I am ones and those who actually understands revelation!
I wish there were more people out there like Dr. Bill and there would be more Christians without a doubt!
