  • Glenda Raysor on John 1:11
    Christ is the the great I Am, He is forever present. He created the world, and all that is in it. Even though Christ created the people and the world, the people he created rejected him. Those who rejected him and refused to recognize the light were unbelievers living in darkness. They knew of His coming it had been pointed to them by those God had chosen to prepare the people for the coming Messiah. The coming of the Messiah had been pointed to throughout the Old Testiment by those who God had chosen (His own) to prepare the rest of the world for the coming Messiah they too rejected Him. (John 1:11 His own).
  • James on John 1:11
    For us as Christians what must we do as a testimony that we have known and accepted Him
  • D Tswapong on John 1:11
    (his own)in john 1v11 refers to all creation.He (Jesus)came to the world that is His result.He came to the world that He made and the world could not recognise Him.The visible world was made by Him and did not know its Maker.
  • Trevorw on John 1:11
    The OT tells us that God claimed the Hebrews as his own people.
    Ergo 'his own' - the Hebrews
  • Daniel Ifesinachi on John 1:11
    His own means all the nation remember he is the maker of all things
  • Skylar Sinclair on John 1:11
    I take it that "His own" is talking either about those who had been saved in that that had received Jesus Christ into their hearts...OR... that perhaps His "blood" family rejected him. Either way I can certainly relate because our two sons have rejected us and we have no earthly idea why. Rejection is one of the most painful things on earth especially when it's "your own".
  • Reese on John 1:11
    here (his own) refers to creation(MAN) not jews. Jesus was rejected by (ALL)not just the jews only
