    V40: Andrew is mentioned: other man name not mention: Jesus the Lamb of God: not respond to John’s words: Name would have been mentioned: What a loss. We could have been reading about him throughout the Centuries, and learn so much from him like the rest of Disciples: suffering like their Master: So many of us today are in his category, missing out on things of God. Deaf ears: Doing our own thing

    Verse 14: The Word(Jesus) made Flesh(Jesus): dwelt among us, and we beheld His Glory, the Glory as iof the Only Begotten of the Father(Jesus), full of Grace and Truth. Jesus is the LIVING WORD: The Holy Scriptures are the Written Word. Jesus Spoke the World into being, using the HOLY SCRIPTURES. There is Power in the Words of the Holy Scriptures. He made the world, yet the world knew Him not.
