Bible study: Book of John

Posted on November 13, 2020 at 1:30 PM

Summary Of Our Study Of John 1: 1-18:

Written after the other gospels, which John would have read.

1. "In the beginning.." John's gospel has a different perspective, starting with God in the beginning.

We understand that the Word was made flesh as Jesus, but the impact of this on early readers would have been immense.

Gen 1:3 "And God said 'Let there be light' and there was light." God *spoke* creation into existence. His Word is powerful. See also Isaiah 55: 10&11.

Not only powerful but "the Word was God".

14. "The Word became flesh and dwelt among us." Amazing! Don't let familiarity with this lessen its impact.

Only in v17 does John say that this is Jesus.

4-9: light & darkness. Jesus is the light.

In v5 "the darkness has not understood/comprehended/overcome/overwhelmed it". Darkness is the absence of light. Light overwhelms darkness, but the reverse is not true. So with good and evil. So with Jesus and Satan.

Verses 12 & 17 echo our study of Romans - all who believe in his name are given the right to become God's children. Grace & truth are contrasted with law.

Read the whole passage, slowly, and repeat. Understand it. It lifts your spirit and fills you with wonder at God's work, his plan, and his love for us.
