Discussion for John 1:10

  • Yes Jesus was a man who was touched in everyway of the temptations of the flesh yet with out sin. For he always did those things which pleased his father. Made a little lower than the angles , through obedience was made perfect and became the Author of salvation .
  • Margarita for verse 10
    It breaks my heart to no end when I see that people who know the truth of who God is, are still today rejecting Him by their evil deeds. Rejecting the Great Mighty and Wonderful God that made us and all that is in this world. God who stooped down from heaven and became a human being. One day, He took all the ugliness of the world to the cross, as our sacrificial lamb, so we can learn how to live again. Yet the people still Crucify HIM ALL DAY LONG! But one day Jesus will come back so we can live in eternal peace.. Amen!
