Looking Straight Into The Son:
The Gospel of John
For many Christian people, the Gospel according to John is the most precious book in the New Testament. It is the book on which above all they feed their minds and nourish their hearts, and in which they rest their souls. The Gospel of John is often represented by the eagle because of all living creatures, only the eagle can look straight into the sun and not be dazzled. John has the most penetrating gaze of all the New Testament writers for he peers into the eternal mysteries and the eternal truths and the very mind of God. Many people find themselves closer to God and to Jesus Christ in John's Gospel than in any other book in the Bible.
