By Verse 14 of Chapter 1 you meet Jesus…and yourself. The first 14 verses clearly tell you Jesus is God come to earth. In today’s world, where we all are being conditioned to receive information quickly, John’s Gospel hits this note.
The first 12 verses also speak to us. It speaks of darkness, and how “the world did not know him”. There was a time when all of us “did not know him”. I went to church for years and did not know him.
And not only do you meet Jesus, by verse 14 you are invited to become a member of his family.
“12But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.”
