Advancing the Conversation of Jesus
GOT A MINUTE?
In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.He existed in the beginning with God.God created everything through him, and nothing was created except through him.So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son.
NOTE John didn’t say, “And the word became a book and dwelt among us.” Jesus made it clear that the Word that existed in the beginning, who was with God, and actually was God, became a human in space-time history.
Jesus told the religious leaders, “You search the Scriptures because you think they give you eternal life. But the Scriptures point to me! Yet you refuse to come to me to receive this life.” (John 5:39-42) The Scriptures point to the only who can give you eternal life, Jesus, but the Scriptures are not the ultimate. Jesus is. Think of the Scriptures as the menu. Jesus is the ultimate! We don’t collect menus that promise something; we embrace, imbibe, and ingest the something more.
We don’t follow a book, not even the Bible; we follow a person. His name is Jesus
