Discussion for John 1

  • ANTHONY PLANGE-ANNAN
    I give thanks and glory to John who humbly give good accounts of the Messiah and not given credit to himself by saying I baptize you with water but he will do with the Holy Spirit.
  • Edna
    I so much like verse 12 "But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name"
  • Tracey Greene
    I love that part where the word says: and all we have received of His fullness. Christ is full of grace and truth, and having received of His fullness is incredible, His Spirit lives on the inside of us giving us a truly wonderful power to overcome the things of the world. John makes it plain, to the point.
  • Elijah
    Would any of you be so kind as to tell my why the second coming of jesus cannot fulfill the jewish definition of a Messiah?

    King James
    Good news

    Verse 3 shows that not even one thing has come into existence apart from Jesus.
