Discussion for John 1

    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"!
  • Netlace
    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.....
