    Yes, John chapter 1 and verse 1 tells us that "In the beginning was the word and the word was with God and the word "WAS GOD". Verse 14 says, "And the word was made flesh" God became a man! Jesus was God and man.

    I read Johns 1 and I believe that "WORD" was made flesh. Are it telling me that "Jesus" was "God" in the flesh?
