During the first century, life was not easy and meaning was often hidden behind the sweat and tears of tough times. Even though the Roman Empire provided advances in medicine and technology, they opened doors for ruthless leaders to strip hope from the life of the common person. So, when Jesus walked on earth 2,000 years ago, He not only promised eternal life, He also promised meaning in the moment. The beloved Apostle John had one purpose for his book: So that all might believe in Jesus (John 20:31). We hope by the end of this series your faith in Jesus is stronger than ever.
