Why read the Bible? day two!


God and Engaging the Bible: Part 2 The ‘these’ this verse is referring to is the book of John. Based on that, what is the purpose of John? What does John mean by “the power of his name”?

JOHN 20:31 NIV

But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.

JOHN 20:31 YLT98

and these have been written that ye may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing ye may have life in his name.’
