Jesus of Nazareth continues to be the inspiration to millions around the world. I have read about Jesus in the New Testament and the account of his life that has inspired myself and more people than any other is the so-called gospel of John.  
John's gospel contains some of the most beautiful and powerful stories we know about Jesus, such as the story of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead, some of the best known sayings of Jesus such as 'I am the way, the truth and the life', and some of the most profound and mystical teaching that we find in the Christian Scriptures, such as the opening words of the gospel about 'the word' that became flesh. John's gospel has been described as like a pool in which a child may wade and an elephant may swim in other words simple enough for a child to enjoy and profound enough to satisfy the most demanding philosophical mind. Many, many people have come to faith in Jesus through reading or hearing John's gospel.
