John in Tweets

I started reading through John in preparation for this year’s OWI High School Youth Class in our church attic.  So I thought I’d read and tweet it together.  John really is a completely different animal from the other Gospels.  These tweets give us a taste of that, demonstrating who Jesus is, what he said, and what he did.  It’s all in the ESV. 

This is the Word of the Lord.
