Zombie Washing

The Gospel of John is a theological and historical account of the life of Jesus Christ. John, the author, weaves theological points into his work using true historical events. This is important to understand as we are examining the Gospel of John. We aren’t looking only for the history behind the text, nor are we only looking at the theology that the text teaches.
