Discussion for John 1

  • A disciple
    Steve; John saw the Father sitting on the throne in Revelation; and the Lord Jesus HAS appeared to many through the ages; but it is generally not regarded, not believed, and evil spoken of; so its only known (if at all) in the smaller circles of the true Believers everywhere. If we've actually seen the Lord or audibly heard His voice, we know that it is a most holy thing not meant to glorify self.

    No one has ever seen the Father but Jesus. Has anyone out there seen Jesus? In November of 2008 around 5pm, Our Lord Jesus appeared with His heavenly host to me when I was very sick. He did not speak, but smiled to me. In my 69 years of life, the few minutes spent with Him, is the high point of my life. Never really understood why He blessed a sinner like me so wonderfully. Jesus is alive!!
  • Halieus
    This book of John is History in the making for the Gentiles and Jews, so being a Gentile (actually an American of German and Latino Parents) now I am grateful the Lord Jesus Christ died for me that I might live and for anyone who believes in His Word of Life and Light.
  • HERBERT Brown
    John believe and committed to every word of God.
