John's Gospel emphasizes Jesus' identity as the Messiah and Son of God. Because of this divine identity, Jesus is able to give eternal life to everyone who believes in him. We see this reality through the signs and miracles he performs. And seven times, he answers "I Am" when people question his identity, echoing God's personal name revealed in Exodus 3.
John's Gospel also shows Jesus using his time on earth to introduce people to the new birth. By believing that he is the Messiah and God's son, they have eternal life and freedom from sin and are empowered to perform radical acts of kindness, generosity, and selfless love as they live their lives in devotion to Jesus and his Kingdom.
