Discussion for John 1

  • Preach
    To become a true Believer we must receive God as the Light of all Life in Jesus Christ by Faith. To understand and convey His real nature, office, and character of that Divine Teacher, who came to instruct and to redeem mankind. This is our most important argument in following and in invitations of souls to Christ. Jesus was in this world and they knew Him not!!! Amen

    Jesus mission laid out perfectly by John! Yes He was sent to the Jew first and then the gentile everyone else v. 31. He came to take away the sin of the WORLD. The Jewish nation failed in taking the gospel message of Messiah to the world, but God isn't finished with the nation yet.

  • John Purdie
    Each time I read John, the Lord Jesus Christ is revealed to me, as it were, for the first time, and I see with spiritual eyes Behold "The Lamb of God, Who taketh away the sin of the world".
    Also, that the Word of God, is new every morning. It is the Living Word. Genesis 1:1 tells us "In the beginning GOD" . 1 John 1"In the beginning was the WORD, and the WORD was with GOD, and the Word was GOD. "
  • Obbie Beal
    1-51 GOD knowing 'time' is quickly ending for the human race; so at the above point in 'time' GOD reminds us of HIS intent from the beginning of 'time' (Genesis); also at the above point in 'time' GOD provide HIS plan (Christ /the Lamb of GOD) to the whole world so I and you shall have the opportunity to be 'Born-Again' through the Lamb of GOD /Christ, thereby saved from the lake of fire.
