People's Bible Notes for John 1:11


Joh 1:11 He came unto his own , etc. This verse states (1) that he "came", personally, to his own. He took upon himself a fleshly form and came to the race to which he was united by fleshly ties; (2) his own received him not. His own is the Jewish nation, who "received" him not.

    I love this: The BIBLE (The written Word) was with God, was God, and created all things. The Word (the written Word) became flesh and dwelt among us and we beheld his glory, the glory of the only begotten (Flesh and blood (virgin birth), not by adoption like we are) of the Father.

    I fill so blessed to have awaken to read this because the word comes to make us to become strong that we continue this walk in the spirit of Christ and with fasting and praying the temptation we are able to withstand for the hour. Enjoyed the reading of this!

    The Word Jesus. By Him all things were created. What manner of man is this that even the elements obey Him! Even if we lost our bodies, and our loved ones, He can recreate it all and even better, the greatest miracle is the change of heart and the free will.Daniel some stars- and some to shame and contempt. Or second death and mashing teeth. Salvation Jesus took the cross to spare those who will
  • A disciple
    "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." By the Word spoken by God the heavens and the earth and all things in them came into being. By the Word spoken by God, when the man sinned and thereby condemned to death, the Saviour of the world was commissioned to undo the ruin and all its causes, by His taking that condemnation upon Himself for us: and so it was!
