- King James Bible "Authorized Version", Cambridge Edition
1:6 There was a man - The evangelist now proceeds to him who testified of the light, which he had spoken of in the five preceding verses.
Joh 1:6 There was a man sent from God. The writer now speaks of a witness to the Light, John, a man sent from God (Joh 1:7,8). He was called to his work from his mother's womb (Lu 1:13-17).

God still sends men today. No man can carry the word except. He is sent by God. Just as John was sent by God to bear witness of the light which is Jesus Christ, we also are sent to represent him. The question is how can we unless we are truly sent by God?

I think that I need to meet someone today, who is like John. John discovered Jesus, because until he introduced him, no one really knew who he was. All they had were the stories others told. In a sense John brought us the Jesus we know today. He stated that he was great, but there was one greater than he was; John baptized with water, but Jesus baptizes us with the Holy Ghost! John 1:33.
John, take me to your Leader!
