Discussion for John 1

  • Jude Howell
    John, was the Apostle, that Jesus loved. He loved the others as well, but there was something special about John. In this Epistle, the difference in this Gospel and the other Gospels, are clear. Jesus has always been here. He was here during the beginning of the world. He has always been here, and will always be here, along with God the Father, and the Holy Spirit. Hallelujah!

    We filled with light. The light is came from Jesus. So Jesus is inside sin is out side.
  • MockingBird
    The Grace of God teaches us to deny ungodliness : The word of God is Truth : The law to my understanding : 5 are toward God and 5 are toward man : If I break one of those laws it is as though I have broken all in God's eyes : Not a one of us has kept the law : For all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God : This is where Grace and Truth comes in . Jesus is our Passover Lamb !!!

    I love to read and learn from the Scriptires.
    If the people in Jesus' day, when He was among them, had received him as these first disciples accepted him, our world would be different today. The TRUTH will remain so no matter.how the enemy slices it.
