Journey with Jesus


Over the next several months, we will have a journey together. We will explore the Gospel of John. We will see Jesus as presented by the writer of that gospel. So today we look at John 1:1-2;

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God.

John does not pull punches, he starts out with a real big bang. He immediately declares that Jesus is God. He tells his readers (who were predominantly Gentile), that this Jesus is God and He came to live among men. This sets a great scene for what John would unfold in later chapters.  The fact that His earthly role was one of servitude and love, something that would have been foreign to the Gentiles. Their gods would only interact with men for purely selfish reasons. But here was Jesus that was different. Here was Deity that came to earth out of love for us.

Over the next few months, we will see exactly how this Jesus is different, so buckle up and discover more about Jesus.
