ANTHONY T SELVAGGIO
A major component of Jesus’ ministry on earth was the performance of signs and wonders. In this book, Anthony T. Selvaggio uses the seven signs given in the first half of the Gospel of John to navigate us toward a glorious destination. This journey begins at a wedding and ends at a funeral. Throughout this trip you will witness the incred ible events of water being turned into wine, the temple cleansed, a sick boy restored, a lame man brought to his feet, thousands feed, a blind man gaining sight, and a dead man com ing forth from his tomb. While this tour centers in the land of Palestine, it will ultimately take you beyond the finiteness of this created world. For on this majestic journey, you will see more than mere signs and wonders – you will see the glory of Jesus the Christ, the Son of God!
NOTE: Contains discussion questions to better facilitate group study.

“Jesus’ messianic signs are at the very heart of John’s theological message. The Seven Signs is delightfully written, theologically sound, and spiritually nurturing. I highly recommend it!” – Andreas J. Kostenberger
“John’s Gospel is the greatest of all introductions to the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Anthony Selvaggio’s The Seven Signs is an ideal introduction to John, insightfully unfolding the apostle’s use of Jesus’ signs to show forth the Lord’s person and work. When I was first converted, I was greatly blessed by memorizing the seven ‘I Am’ statements of Jesus which accompany these signs, and they were an effective aid in my witness of the gospel. A renewed emphasis on Jesus’ signs in this Gospel can only have the effect of strengthening faith and energizing witness today. This book is thus ideal for small group study and for individual devotional reading.” – Richard Phillips
