约翰福音-John 20章 30~31节
Moreover indeed many other signs also Jesus did before His disciples, which are not written in this book.
But these have been written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that believing, you may have life in His name.
These verses indicate that the purpose of John’s Gospel is to testify that Jesus is the Christ (1:41; 4:25, 29; 7:41-42; Matt. 16:16; Luke 2:11) and the Son of God (1:34, 49; 9:35; 10:36; Matt. 16:16; Luke 1:35). Together with 21:25, these verses affirm that this Gospel is the record of a selection of things that serve the purpose of testifying to the matter of life and building.
The Christ is the title of the Lord according to His office, His mission. The Son of God is His title according to His Person. His Person is a matter of God’s life, and His mission is a matter of God’s work. He is the Son of God to be the Christ of God. He works for God by the life of God that men also, by believing in Him, may have God’s life to become God’s many sons and to work by God’s life to build the corporate Christ (1 Cor. 12:12), thus fulfilling God’s purpose of His eternal building.
