Bible commentary

Discussion for John 1

  • Jesse Bryant
    John 1:18 dispels the idea of Jesus as "the angel of the Lord". This chapter makes it abundantly clear that Jesus and the Father are one and the same God (though distinct in person). The angel of the Lord is just that, the angel, not the Lord.
  • Peter A. Okebukola
    The Trinity is revealed in this Chapter. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit have been one since the beginning of time. The Word- Jesus Christ, came down to the world to take away our sins. John had the singular privilege of being a forerunner and baptising Jesus with water who will in turn, baptise with the Holy Spirit. The Book of John is deep.
  • Bruce
    --- Ye were not redeemed with corruptible things as silver and gold --- but with the Precious Blood of Christ as of a Lamb without blemish and without spot.1Peter 1:18-19 /--- He was led as a Sheep to the slaughter and like a Lamb dumb before His shearer---Acts 8:32. / Thank you for being on here,it helps us believers to be stronger and more in His Word. Whosoever: Revelation 20:15. Forever.
  • Insight777
    Jesus is the shepherd not the lamb. John said behold the Lamb of God. The Lamb of God is the church that takes away the sins of the world by teaching=shedding the blood of Christ which is the new testament taught to them by Jesus. Water baptism is taught for the remission of sin and the voice of God approves. John was telling Jesus, here is your lamb=church that you come to lead to God and save.
  • Lu2677
    John 1:5"And the light shineth in darkness, and darkness comprehended it not." The context of the verse is Jesus is the light in a dark world. And the wicked of his day did not comprehend who he was. Jesus is the Word; Those that walk in darkness cannot comprehend the Word of God; Scripture. They add to it, take away from it, reject it, hate it, they turn the word of God into lewdness,
  • Peter
    John 1 is a very important charter where we can see Jesus as God and God in Jesus wherein the Trinity is explicitly defined and explained. John the baptist also gives it clearly. What more can one not believe this witness and testimony. Truly Jesus is God and John the Apostle gives an eye witness of everything as he saw, knew and testify so that we can believe in Jesus Christ the Lord. amen.
