Discussion for John 1

  • Eve56
    John was following God commandments He was truly one of God's son's. So for that reason why some people believe in God.
  • Tracy
    I like John 1 confirms the prophecy of Jesus Christ as the Messiah. Then here comes Simon who Jesus calls "Stone". Then Nathaniel Jesus says He saw him under the fig tree. My words may not be articulate but i truly believe we have been called specifically out of darkness into Light with the Father.
  • Wendy

    In the beginning : The beginning of time for us : Was the Word : The Word was with God .The Word was God : Jesus and the Word : God and Holy Spirit are all one : In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God and the Word is God. Simple : But at the same time very Powerful !!!!! He upholds all things by the Word of His Power. Not the Power of His Word : The Word of His Power.
