The Good News of John (in NuEnglish)

The Good News of John

The Gospel of John (Gospel means "Good News") is the fourth book in the New Testament of the Holy Bible, which contains 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 books in the New Testament. A study of known facts indicates that the Good News of John was written about 85 to 90 AD by the apostle John, a little more than 50 years after the death of Jesus. John was an eyewitness to the things he records in his book. John was known as "the beloved disciple." He referred to himself in his writings as "the disciple whom Jesus loved." John and his brother James were sons of Zebedee and Salome and were called "the sons of thunder" because of the bold way they sometimes responded to challenging situations. Peter, James, and John were "the inner circle" of the disciples—those closest to Jesus.

Each paragraph in The Good News of John is given a title in order to help find portions of the text and to help in understanding the text. The Chapter numbers, verse numbers, and paragraph titles are not a part of the original writing. The words of Jesus are in red. Red letters were also not in the original. This NuEnglish version is converted from the New King James version © 1979 and is used by permission of Thomas Nelson Inc., Publishers.

If you have a friend or relative who reads so poorly that he or she almost never tries to read anything (one definition of a "functionally illiterate" person) and if this friend or relative wants or needs to read the Good News of John—or any other traditionally spelled English written material—please teach them to read NuEnglish (or enlist someone to teach them) and give them a copy of this. You should be able to teach them to read NuEnglish with only a week or two of instruction, using page 10, "Learn to Read Now" of the website (click here to go there if you are not now at that website) in the sidebar on the left. You can also teach functional illiterates how to use a scanner used with a computer and a text recognition program (such as OmniPage) to correct scanning errors. They can then feed anything they want to read into the free Respeller program accessed by clicking on "Respeller" at the top left of the wesite. All they have to do is to copy and paste the material they scanned and corrected—up to 25 pages at a time—into the left-hand box and click the "convert to NuEnglish" button.

Thu 4 Spirichūul Lauz

Just az ther or fizukul lauz that guvurn thu fizukul yūnuvurs, sō ther or spirichūul lauz that guvurn yur rul*āshunship witt God.

Lau 1. God luvz yū and aufurz u wundurful plan fōr yur līf.

God'z Luv: "God sō luvd thu wurld that Hē gāv Hiz ōnlē big*otun Sun, that hūevur bul*ēz in Him shood not perish but hav ēt*urnul līf" (Jon 3:16)

God'z Plan: [Krīst spēking] "Ī kām that thā mīt hav līf, and mīt hav it m*ōr ub*unduntlē" [that it mīt b*ē fool and mēningfool](Jon 10:10)

Hwī iz it that mōst pēpul or not exp*irunsing that ub*undunt līf?

Lau 2. Man-kīnd iz sin-fool and sepurātud frum God. Ther-fōr wē kan not nō and exp*irēuns God'z luv and plan fōr our līf.

Man-kind iz Sin-fool: "Aul hav sind and faul shōrt uv thu glōrē uv God" (Rōmunz [Romans] 3:23).

Man-kīnd wuz krē*ātud tu hav felōship witt God; but, bi-kuz uv our ōn stuburn self-wil, wē chūz tu gō our ōn in-dep*endunt wā and felōship witt God wuz brōkun. This self-wil, karukturīzd bī an atitūd uv ēthur aktiv reb*elyun ōr pasiv in-difruns, iz an eviduns uv hwut thu Bībul kaulz sin.

Man-kīnd iz Sepurātud: "Thu wājuz uv [pāmunt fōr] sin iz dett" [spirichūul sepur*āshun frum God] (Rōmunz 6:23).

God iz hōlē and man-kind iz sin-fool. U grāt gulf sepurāts us frum God. Man-kīnd iz kunt*inyūullē trīing tu rēch God and thē ub*undunt līf ttrū our ōn efurts, such az living u good līf, fil*osufē, ōr rel*ijun—but man-kīnd in-evitublē fālz.

Thu 3rd lau expl*ānz thē ōnlē wā tu brij this gulf:

Lau 3. Jēzus Krīst iz God'z ōnlē prōv*izhun fōr man-kīnd'z sin. Ttrū Him wē kan nō and exp*irēuns God'z luv and planz fōr our līvz.

Hē Dīd in Our Plās: "God demunstrāts Hiz ōn luv taurd us, in that hwīl wē wur yet sinurz, Krīst dīd fōr us" (Rōmunz 5:8).

Hē Rōz Frum thu Ded: "Krīst dīd fōr our sinz. . . Hē wuz barēd. . . Hē rōz ug*en thu 3rd dā, uk*ōrding tu thu Skripchurz. . . Hē u-pird tu Pētur, then tu thu 12. Aftur that Hē u- pird tu mōr than 5 100. . . ." (Ī Kōr*inttēunz [Corinthians] 15:3-6).

Hē Iz thē Ōnlē Wā tu God: "Jēzus sed tu him, 'Ī am thu wā, thu trūtt, and thu līf. Nō 1 kumz tu thu Fothur but ttrū Mē' " (Jon 14:6).

God haz brijd thu gulf that sepurāts us frum Him bī sending Hiz Sun, Jēzus Krīst, tu dī on thu kraus in our plās tu pā thu penultē fōr our sinz. Our Hōlē God kuns*idurz sin tu bē sō hōrubul that Hē req*īrz u hōlē, sin-les sakrifīs tu satisfī Hiz hōlēnus. Man-kīnd ōd u det wē kood not pā. Jēzus pād u det Hē did not ō fōr our det that wē kood not pā.

It iz not en*uf just tu thēz 3 lauz. . . .

Lau 4. Wē must in-div*ijūullē res*ēv Jēzus Krīst az Sāvyur and Lōrd; then wē kan nō and exp*irēuns God'z luv and plan fōr our līvz.

Wē Must Res*ēv Krīst: "Az menē az res*ēvd Him, tu them Hē gāv thu rīt tu bi-kum Childrun uv God, ēvun tu thōz hū bel*ēv in Hiz nām" (Jon 1:12).

Wē Res*ēv Krīst Ttrū Fātt: "Bī Grās yū hav ben sāvd ttrū fātt; and that not uv yur- selvz, it iz thu gift uv God; not az u rez*ult uv wurks that nō 1 shood bōst" (Ef*ēzhunz [Ephesians] 2:8,9).

Hwen Wē Res*ēv Krīst, Wē Exp*irēuns u Nū Burtt: (Rēd Jon 3:1-8 ug*en.)

Wē Res*ēv Krīst Ttrū Pursunul Invit*āshun: [Krīst spēking] "Bi-hōld, Ī stand at thu dōr and nok; if enē 1 hirz Mī vois and ōpunz thu dōr, Ī wil kum in tu him" (Revel*āshun [Revelation] 3:20).

Res*ēving Krīst inv*olvz turning tu God and frum self (wē must adm*it that wē or sinurz and ask God tu fōrg*iv us) and trusting Krīst tu kum in-tu our līvz tu fōrg*iv our sinz and tu māk us hwut Hē wonts us tu bē. Just tu ugr*ē intel*ekchūullē that Jēzus Krīst iz thu Sun uv God and that Hē dīd on thu kraus fōr our sinz iz not en*uf. Nōr iz it en*uf tu hav an em*ōshunul exp*irēuns. Wē res*ēv Jēzus Krīst bī fātt, az an akt uv thu wil—bī māking u furm des*izhun tu dū sō.

Thu folōing expl*ānz hou yū kan res*ēv Krīst:

Yū Kan Res*ēv Krīst Rīt Nou bī Fātt Ttrū Prar (Prar iz tauking witt God).

God nōz yur hort and iz not sō kuns*urnd witt yur wurdz az Hē iz witt thē atitūd uv yur hort. Thu folōing iz u sugj*estud prar:

Dir Lōrd Jēzus, Ī bel*ēv that yū dīd on thu kraus fōr mī sinz and that Yū u-rōz frum thu grāv. Ī nou ask Yū tu fōrg*iv mī sinz and tu sāv mī sōl. Tāk kuntr*ōl uv mī līf and māk mē thu kīnd uv pursun yū wont mē tu bē.

Dōz this prar expr*es thu dez*īr uv yur hort? If it duz, yū or inv*ītud tu prā this prar rīt nou, and Krīst wil kum in-tu yur līf, az Hē promist. Jēzus wuz not u-shāmd tu dī on thu kraus fōr us. Rōmunz 10:11 telz us, "Hū-evur bel*ēvz on [Jēzus] shal not bē u-shāmd." Jēzus sed, "Fōr hū-evur iz u-shāmd uv Mē and Mī wurdz in this ud*ultrus and sin-fool jenur*āshun, uv him thu Sun uv Man aul-sō wil bē u-shāmd hwen Hē kumz in thu glōrē uv Hiz Fothur witt thu hōlē ānjulz." (Mork 8:38) and "Ther-fōr hū-evur kunf*esuz Mē bi-fōr men, him Ī wil aul-sō kunf*es bi-fōr mī Fothur hū iz in hevun. But hū-evur den*īz Mē bi-fōr men, him Ī wil aul-sō den*ī bi-fōr Mī Fothur hū iz in hevun." (Mattyū 10:32-33)

1 wā wē kan kunf*es our bel*ēf in Jēzus iz tu bē baptīzd, hwich wē dū bi-fōr our frendz tu shō that wē or nou port uv God'z familē—wē or not baptīzd tu bi-kum Krischunz but bi-kuz wē or Krischunz and wont tu ōb*ā Jēzus and folō thē egz*ampul uv Jēzus bēing baptīzd.

If yū hav prād that prar asking Jēzus tu fōrg*iv yur sinz and hav sur*endurd yur līf tu Hiz lēding, God nōz if yū wur sins*ir. If sō, yū hav res*ēvd Krīst and or nou u Chīld uv God—yū hav ben ud*optud in-tu God'z familē! If wē wur witt yū wē kood giv yū u hug and sā, "Wel-kum, bruthur ōr sistur, tu God'z familē!

Az u nū Chīld uv God, yū nēd tu grō and much*ur spirichūullē in thu sām wā that nū-bōrn bābēz must grō fiziklē.
