Abstract: Different scholars have viewed the Gospel of John from different perspectives. Some see it as the Gospel of miracles, a priestly book and others consider its humble appearance. This work examines the problems of interpreting the Gospel of John, its variance in contents with the synoptic gospels and the purpose underneath Jesus’ discourse with His disciples before His passion. The true intent of His discourse and prayer reported in the gospel reveal the type of love He exhibited in on the cross as equivalent with that between Him and the Father In an attempt to unveil the evangelistic intentions behind the book, various hermeneutical tools and historic-literal methods used in interpreting scriptures have been used to evaluate various interpretations of John 13:35, 17:21 and 1 Corinthians 14:21. The study found the binding factor as unconditional love that Jesus revealed about God to man but through the cross as a means to evangelize and share the love of Jesus to the entire world. Finally, the essay discovered the great role of Africans in the gospel work in the history of the early church but concealed by Western propaganda that must be reversed through a biblical Africanization of the gospel message in line with the primal purpose of the Gospel of John.
