The Purpose of the Book

30 Jesus performed many other signs in the presence of his disciples, which are not recorded in this book.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on John 20:30

Commentary on John 20:30-31

(Read John 20:30-31)

There were other signs and proofs of our Lord's resurrection, but these were committed to writing, that all might believe that Jesus was the promised Messiah, the Saviour of sinners, and the Son of God; that, by this faith, they might obtain eternal life, by his mercy, truth, and power. May we believe that Jesus is the Christ, and believing may we have life through his name.

31 But these are written that you may believe[1] that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in his name.
