What does the reference mean? The Witnesses use a rather odd and somewhat cryptic set of abbreviations for their publications. g94 11/8 10 is Awake! magazine, 8th of November, 1994, p. 10. jv 134 is Jehovah’s Witnesses—Proclaimers of God’s Kingdom (pub. 1993), p. 134. Many books also have another, less cryptic abbreviation. For example, jv is often ...

I'm pretty sure that there is no source that looks at only Jesus words. However there are certainly theological approaches that place a much greater emphasis on Jesus words. For a start you might want to look at Red Letter Christians, a group that attempts to redress what they see as an imbalance in North American Evangelicalism, which they believe has ...

While not really a systematic theology book, John Piper's What Jesus Demands from the World is predominantly based on the gospels. There is a free PDF on that page. The book's blurb is: The four Gospels are filled with demands from Jesus. These demands are Jesus’ way of showing us who he is and what he expects of us. They are not harsh demands ...

I don't think there's a satisfactory answer to the original question, but I thought an answer would be better suited than a comment. There can't be a total solution to your question, because Jesus was constantly making reference to the OT Scriptures. So, you cannot have an only - word - in - red approach, as it would be self-contradicting. And the life of ...

A passage whose interpretation clearly delineates Jesus as being greater than other prophets is the parable of the wicked tenants: 9 He went on to tell the people this parable: “A man planted a vineyard, rented it to some farmers and went away for a long time. 10 At harvest time he sent a servant to the tenants so they would give him some of the fruit of ...

The other answers are correct about JN316 probably being a reference to John 3:16, and D0UB3L13V3 asking the question "Do you believe". Just wanted to add about the "D4" that this may mean "Died for", i.e. it is a reference to that Jesus gave his life in behalf of humankind.
