How do you get to know the most important person who has ever lived?

Whether we’re meeting new people or trying to learn more about our family and friends, relationships take time and effort. But no person in history is more deserving of our time and attention than Jesus Christ. And no-one in history has ever been better placed to introduce us to Jesus than the apostle John: Jesus’ closest friend, “the disciple whom Jesus loved” (John 21:20), and an eyewitness to Jesus’ life, death and resurrection.
