AND THE WORD BECAME FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US AND WE BEHELD HIS GLORY THE GLORY AS OF THE ONLY BEGOTTEN OF THE FATHER FULL OF GRACE AND TRUTH. (John 1:14)
The historical account of the birth of the Messiah as reported by the Apostle John is simple, straightforward, and factual. The WORD became flesh and dwelt among us! The WORD is the eternal logos of the living God. Indeed, the Apostle John relates that “In the beginning was the WORD and the WORD was with God and the WORD was GOD. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made by Him and without Him was not anything made that was made. In Him was life and the life was the light of the world. The light shined in the darkness and the darkness overcame it not." (John 1:1–5)
THE ONE TRUE GOD, THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD
In the Old Testament Book of Deuteronomy the Lord God told Israel, “Hear oh Israel: the Lord your God is One! You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. The great I AM, Jehovah, has identified Himself as being ONE GOD. Thus, when the Apostle John is writing that which God has revealed to him, he identifies the eternal WORD OF GOD, JESUS, as God Himself. In the fullness of time, the Lord God prepared a body for the Eternal second person of the Trinity, the Lord Jesus Christ, and He was born of a woman in Bethlehem in Judea. He is described as the Light of the world. He describes Himself as the Light of the world. He was prophesied to be the Light of the world.
