John wrote to the Church and his Gospel is in many ways perhaps the most unique, as it is based upon 7 miracles,
No star, angels, shepherds. No wise men. No mention of Bethlehem or Mary and Joseph. No genealogy of Jesus to introduce His birth. No description of the events preceding and surrounding the birth of Jesus.
