Daily advent readings from John chapter 1 to inspire you as you approach Christmas.

We may be familiar with the baby in the manger, but have you met the Word who was in the beginning with God? Have you met the One True Light who is full of grace and truth? Or the Cosmic Lord who won the right for people to become Children of God? They are one and the same person.

Join Tim Chester as he guides us through the opening verses of the Gospel of John, and enjoy a Christmas infused with new meaning and light.

With ideas for reflection, prayer and application, these short, meditative readings will excite you about Jesus in the busyness of the run up to Christmas Day.

If you’re looking for a fresh, creative, insightful, and thoroughly biblical and Christ-exalting guide for Advent, look no further. Tim Chester’s book, The One True Light, applies biblical theology to the first 18 verses of John’s gospel to show us how the Incarnation affects every aspect of our lives. Brief and simple enough for children, yet deep and rich enough for mature Christians, this is a book that inspires awe, wonder, and praise for Emmanuel, God with us.

Most of us struggle to keep the main thing the main thing – and at Christmas, even more so! In this advent devotional Tim strips away all the unnecessary distractions and helps us focus on Christ. Journeying daily through John 1 we catch a fresh glimpse of Jesus and are invited into a deeper relationship with him - essential if we are to recapture the true meaning of Christmas.

Marcus Honeysett

Director of Living Leadership

Advent is a great time to remember and retell the Great Story. In short meditations Tim Chester takes us day by day on an advent journey to meet the lovely Jesus of the Bible – “not just a preacher or healer but the Creator walking into his creation.” Come and meet the Word of God remaking the World of God
A super series of short meditations introducing the Jesus who brings us into the loving arms of his Father. All warmly illustrated with stories from life about problematic plumbing, Chelsea Football Club, enjoying the sky at night, the city of Sheffield and fist-fighting bishops!

“Enjoying Advent”

As church leaders, we decided to get these for each of our church families to read together each day of advent. We have all enjoyed the time spent reading what Tim Chester has put together from John's Gospel to focus our gaze on our coming Emmanuel and Saviour as a church this Christmas. This little book is great for the individual and families.


“You cannot read this without thinking about where Jesus is in your life”

We bought this on recommendation from a friend as a home-group daily reading this Advent and it has been well received. Chester links the passage wonderfully to the rest of the bible to draw out different aspects of the Saviour, and His relationship with the rest of the godhead and with us. We benefitted from it as believers but Chester has written it so that non-believers can read and understand too. So helpful.
