What a powerful statement as to who Jesus was & is.
The apostle,John, who wrote this account of Jesus, had no doubt who & what Jesus was, & is.
1 In the beginning the Word already existed.
The Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
2 He existed in the beginning with God.
3 God created everything through him,
and nothing was created except through him.
4 The Word gave life to everything that was created,
and his life brought light to everyone.
5 The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness can never extinguish it.
10 He came into the very world he created,
but the world didn't recognize him.
11 He came to his own people,
and even they rejected him.
12 But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. (dan note: let that sink in...)
13 They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God.
the Word became human and made his home among us. (dan note: and let THAT one sink in too!)
He was full of
unfailing love and faithfulness.
And we have seen his glory, the glory
of the Father's one and only Son.
