Discussion for John 1

  • Vj
    John was hungering for more closeness to God. He was watching for and expecting Jesus .He had listened and learned from teachings from Gods Word and believed It would come to pass just like it was foretold by the true prophets .
  • Cynthia Scott
    John was faithful unto God. He could have grown weary while waiting on Jesus to come; however he never gave up. He continued to pave the way for Jesus. We as Christians today should do the same. We are so quick to give up when we don't get a quick answer to our prayers. Praise God for forgiveness and his Love!

    He was a man of great faith and wisdom
  • 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.
