    Verse 15 is the first prophecy recorded in the Bible.
  • Michael C.
    Verse 15 This is the "Word which was from the beginning with God;...and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." This is the Word which allowed man to still live the rest of his time in the flesh; albeit under humiliation, toil and sorrow: in faith of the glad tidings of the Saviour to come. It was against this Word that Cain killed his brother, as so do the ungodly persecute the righteous.
