Johns Gospel begins:In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning.

He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made- without him, nothing was made that has been made.This opening reflects the presentation of the Creation sequence in the first book of the Bible.

Beyond this, we hypothesize that Johns Gospel presents Jesus life and ministry as a spiritual parallel to the physical creation sequence in Genesis. This makes Johns Gospel markedly different form the other three Gospels, which portray a more chronological narrative.This spiritual creation structure is employed in interpreting Johns Gospel, though the interpretations are not constrained by this thought. Successive chapters in this analysis consider the successive days of the spiritual creation sequence in Johns gospel- with an expositional section and an exhortational one.

This couplet is repeated seven times in the book, for each of the spiritual days. In each chapter, the spiritual equivalent of the component in the physical day of the Genesis creation is considered alongside the presentation of Jesus Christ in each spiritual day of Johns Gospel.The final chapter addresses questions of overall conceptual format to ensure that we have not missed the forest for the trees, i.e.:- How are the Father and Son glorified from a spiritual creation sequence embedded in a Gospel?- Are there othe portions of scripture patterned this way and, if so, what do we gain perceiving the spiritual creation sequence within them?- How does the perception of Johns spiritual creation help us to be better disciples of Jesus Christ?It is hopedthe analysis presented in Johns Creation will answer these questions and therefore prove of genuine worth to one walking the path of discipleship in Christ.
