John 1 - Part 2
Some things that we learn about Jesus from John chapter 1:
vv.1-2: Jesus existed before anything was created and was one with the God the Father.
v.3: Jesus played an integral part in the process of creation.
vv.4-5: There’s something really important here, but I’m not quite sure how to reword it. Just read the verses!
vv.9-13: Jesus came into the world but was not recognized as it’s creator. Anyone who believes in his name can become a child of God.
vv.14-18: Jesus is the Word (that is, the Word that existed in the beginning with God and was a part of the Creative process) made flesh. He is eternal God in human form, and he lived amongst regular, every day people. He reveals to us what God is like. Through him come grace (that which is given to us that we don’t deserve) and truth (an explanation of what reality is really like beyond our own perspective).
