One of the first books of the New Testament to get published into a new language is the Book of John.  Our investigation is led by Bible scholar, Mark Horton.  In addition to looking into the book, as our study encounters points of interest along the way, we will analyze some of the beliefs held by dispensationalists (aka Christian Zionists, Judeo-Christians, Neo-Christians) and compare them to what Jesus taught.  This study will help you understand why Christian Zionists have developed such a fixation on the modern State of Israel that it can even lead to little regard for fellow Christians who happen to be Palestinians.
