That you may believe

Have you ever asked God for a sign? Throughout Scripture, God gave signs to his people, whether mighty acts during the exodus or miracles through Elijah and Elisha. Jesus was also asked for a sign. Yet despite giving seven remarkable signs, his people refused to believe him.

In Signs of the Messiah, Andreas J. Köstenberger—veteran New Testament scholar and expert on the Gospel of John—guides readers through John and highlights its plot and message. John’s Gospel is written to inspire faith in Jesus. By keeping the Gospel’s big picture in view, readers will see Jesus’ mighty signs and be compelled to trust more fully in the Messiah.

Readers will have a deeper grasp of John’s message and intent through this short and accessible introduction.

Praise for Signs of the Messiah

Students and pastors alike will gain new insights into this crucial telling of the Good News by working through this little primer.

–Ben Witherington, III, Amos Professor of NT for Doctoral Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary

An accessible and engaging book.

–Jeannine Brown, Professor of New Testament & Director of Online Programs, Bethel Seminary

Pastors, teachers, students, and all others who want to understand this Gospel and pass along its good news to others will find this book to be an outstanding resource.

–Robert W. Yarbrough, Professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary

Forgoing unnecessary academic lingo, Köstenberger writes this work in a way that communicates well for pastors and lay readers. After a robust and, I believe, persuasive defense of the Fourth Gospel’s authorship by the apostle John, Köstenberger works through the Gospel in ways both practical and edifying.

–Craig S. Keener, F. M. and Ada Thompson Professor of Biblical Studies, Asbury Theological Seminary
