John
A crowd of people asked Jesus to show them a miracle.

John

The fourth, and last, of the Gospels is that of John. It was written about 50 years after Jesus' ascension by the last surviving of His disciples, the apostle John; "the disciple who Jesus loved".

At the time John was writing, the Christian faith had spread and its followers were suffering at the hands of the Roman government. Despite this, John still hoped to spread the good news about Jesus, as He had commanded His disciples after His resurrection. As John says:

John 20:31

"but these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name."

All quotations from the Bible are taken from the Authorised King James Version.

The third time that the resurrected Jesus appeared to His disciples, He told Peter to feed His what?
The poor
His calves and His cattle
The hungry
His lambs and His sheep
Jesus was giving Peter the task of leading His followers after His death. Peter went on to become the first Bishop of Rome, where he was martyred for his faith.

John 21:14-19
"This is now the third time that Jesus shewed himself to his disciples, after that he was risen from the dead.
So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my lambs. He saith to him again the second time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee. He saith unto him, Feed my sheep. He saith unto him the third time, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me? Peter was grieved because he said unto him the third time, Lovest thou me? And he said unto him, Lord, thou knowest all things; thou knowest that I love thee. Jesus saith unto him, Feed my sheep. Verily, verily, I say unto thee, When thou wast young, thou girdedst thyself, and walkedst whither thou wouldest: but when thou shalt be old, thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not. This spake he, signifying by what death he should glorify God. And when he had spoken this, he saith unto him, Follow me"

Most of the Pharisees, a group of strict Jews, disliked Jesus and His teachings. One of the Pharisees, however, befriended Jesus and listened to His teachings. What was this man's name?
Nicodemus
Nobah
Nimrod
Noah
Jesus taught Nicodemus that, to enter Heaven, a man must be born again.

John 3:4-8
"Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born? Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again. The wind bloweth where it listeth, and thou hearest the sound thereof, but canst not tell whence it cometh, and whither it goeth: so is every one that is born of the Spirit"

Jesus was presented with a woman who had sinned, who the Law of Moses condemned to death. The Pharisees, in an attempt to trick Jesus, asked Him what they should do to her. How did Jesus reply to them?
He said that the one amongst them who she had sinned against should be the first to strike her
He said that the woman should be stoned, as the Law commanded
He said that the one amongst them who had never sinned should be the first to strike her
He said that the woman should pay a fine to the temple
Jesus shamed the men into releasing the woman. All of us have sinned and we should forgive others as we wish for God to forgive us.

John 8:5-11
"Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou? This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not. So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her. And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground. And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst. When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee? She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more"
4.
As well as His own resurrection, during His life Jesus raised three people from the dead: the daughter of Jairus, a young man from Nain and Lazarus. How long had Lazarus been dead before Jesus brought him back to life?
For 2 hours
For 4 hours
For 2 days
For 4 days
The amount of time between Lazarus' death and his return to life makes this miracle all the more remarkable.

John 11:38-44
"Jesus therefore again groaning in himself cometh to the grave. It was a cave, and a stone lay upon it. Jesus said, Take ye away the stone. Martha, the sister of him that was dead, saith unto him, Lord, by this time he stinketh: for he hath been dead four days. Jesus saith unto her, Said I not unto thee, that, if thou wouldest believe, thou shouldest see the glory of God? Then they took away the stone from the place where the dead was laid. And Jesus lifted up his eyes, and said, Father, I thank thee that thou hast heard me. And I knew that thou hearest me always: but because of the people which stand by I said it, that they may believe that thou hast sent me. And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth. And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with graveclothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go"
5.
When Mary Magdalene saw Jesus after His resurrection, who did she mistake Him for?
Elijah
A gardener
Moses
A grave digger
When she realised who He was, Mary wanted to touch Jesus, but He told her to go and tell His disciples what had happened.

John 20:15-18
"Jesus saith unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto him, Sir, if thou have borne him hence, tell me where thou hast laid him, and I will take him away. Jesus saith unto her, Mary. She turned herself, and saith unto him, Rabboni; which is to say, Master. Jesus saith unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to my Father: but go to my brethren, and say unto them, I ascend unto my Father, and your Father; and to my God, and your God. Mary Magdalene came and told the disciples that she had seen the Lord, and that he had spoken these things unto her"
6.
When Jesus appeared before His disciples after His resurrection, one of them was absent and consequently he did not belive that Jesus had risen. Which one of the disciples was this?
Thaddaeus
James
Thomas
John
This is from where we get the expression "doubting Thomas".

John 20:26-29
"And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing. And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God. Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed"
7.
A crowd of people asked Jesus to show them a miracle, as Moses had when he brought them Manna from Heaven. Jesus replied by saying that He was what?
The Lord of Heaven
Not a sorcerer
The bread of life
Not to be tested
Rather than food for the body, Jesus was food for the spirit, bringing eternal life to His followers.

John 6:35-40
"And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. But I said unto you, That ye also have seen me, and believe not. All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out. For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me. And this is the Father’s will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day"
8.
The night before His crucifixion, Jesus tells His disciples that the Holy Spirit will come to them after He has gone. How does Jesus refer to the Holy Spirit?
The Comforter
The Dove
The Protector
The Lamb
Jesus' disciples were sad because their master was leaving them, but He explains that things must be as they are for the sake of the world.

John 16:5-11
"But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou? But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they believe not on me; of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged"

John's Gospel opens with the words "In the beginning..." Which words come next?
God created the Heavens and the Earth
Was the void
God was alone
Was the Word
John 1:1-5
"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not."

The "word" is the English translation for the Greek "Logos," which means "reason" or "wisdom." It represents the aspect of God which mediates in this world and in its creation. Jesus is the word made flesh
10.
The very first miracle performed by Jesus is recorded in the 2nd chapter of John's Gospel. Which miracle was this?
Feeding the 5,000
Turning water into wine
Curing a leper
Curing a blind man
Jesus' time had not yet come, but at the request of His mother, He performed His first miracle.

John 2:1-11
"And the third day there was a marriage in Cana of Galilee; and the mother of Jesus was there: and both Jesus was called, and his disciples, to the marriage. And when they wanted wine, the mother of Jesus saith unto him, They have no wine. Jesus saith unto her, Woman, what have I to do with thee? mine hour is not yet come. His mother saith unto the servants, Whatsoever he saith unto you, do it. And there were set there six waterpots of stone, after the manner of the purifying of the Jews, containing two or three firkins apiece. Jesus saith unto them, Fill the waterpots with water. And they filled them up to the brim. And he saith unto them, Draw out now, and bear unto the governor of the feast. And they bare it. When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom, and saith unto him, Every man at the beginning doth set forth good wine; and when men have well drunk, then that which is worse: but thou hast kept the good wine until now. This beginning of miracles did Jesus in Cana of Galilee, and manifested forth his glory; and his disciples believed on him"
