Word of God
Jeff Harrison   -  

The birth narrative of Jesus is unique to John’s Gospel. Unlike the other Gospels John begins with a cosmological understanding of who Jesus is and what he has come to do. Jesus is the Word of God, God from God, Light of Light, the One who has “become flesh” and moved in with us. In Jesus, God was no longer off in the distance, far away. God, in Jesus Christ came near, lived a life like ours and illuminated the way, the truth, and the life.
