Discussion for John 1

    Gen. 1:1- "In the beginning God." Gen. 1:26a- "And God said, Let us make man in our image..." This is the Trinity- God the Father, God the Son, God the Holy Spirit. John 1:1 "In the beginning was the Word" The Bible tells us that in the beginning the Word existed. In ver. 14 it says the Word was made flesh, Jesus came in the form of man, and is the only begotten of the Father. John 3:16

    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.

  • Netlace
    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"!
