    Dear friend, the Word is Jesus. Capital 'W'. Because Jesus came down from heaven, to bear witness, and went up again. Jesus is God manifested in the flesh.
  • Sharon Budworth
    Great story but who is the word? This has never been authenticated, I cannot comprehend that this is Jesus because he was not born until thousands of years later. It is very confusing.

    2 Yes Christ was there with the father God and did create everything. Man being made in "our" image. And about the "Cross", this is also a creation of Rome. Search out the greek word for Cross and it clearly says "stake or pole"! Other places it says "tree"!

    Millstone, Jeshua knew from the start. Many things about Cephas are showing a certain pattern. Yes Jeshua loved him, he loves man no matter what they have done. Paul has also gave indication of who Peter, Cephas or Simon really was.....
