In Volume 1 we have considered the comprehensive presentation of this transition as contained in the Letter to the Hebrews. In this second volume we are taking note of the concentration of that transition as in the Gospel by John. This "Gospel" has been expounded in many ways, mainly in relation to certain specific subjects, as contained in the separate chapters. This method has provided an immense amount of helpful instruction. But the Gospel has rarely - if ever - been shown to have ONE matter governing it from beginning to end. Our object here is to do this and to show that there is one comprehensive issue lying behind the whole. Our method is to indicate this by some sixteen particular connections in the narrative. There are, however, more than sixteen. The messages having been given in conference, the number of meetings only allowed for what is here presented. The spoken form is retained.
