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.

    We are right at the outset acquainted with the divinity of Christ as unlike the synoptic Gospels, John does not commence with a focus on events but on the adulthood of the Son of Man sent from God , which John the Baptist makes clear. That Christ was the I Am who preceded all else and was part of the Creation act is revealed in the very first verse as also that the Word had to assume human form...
  • Harry whorton
    John 1:2 the word of God was with God from before creation. We cannot separate God from his word. They are one in the same. Praise God always, for he is holy.
