John 1:1-3, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
Of the four Gospels in the Bible, the Gospel of John might be considered the audio version. John focuses more on what Jesus said so that we can understand not only the events that made up the life of Jesus, but we can also hear for ourselves the actual words of God.

“And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
Several years ago singer Joan Osborne asked the musical question, “What if God was one of us?” What if God already answered that question in person? What if Jesus was both God and human as the Bible says? It’s a big idea and one that deserves our attention. If it is true then we might need to rethink our ideas about God, nature, human existence, life, death, good, evil, body, soul, spirit, and what else might be out there beyond our experience. As the world considers the birth of a very special baby at Christmas, we’re going to consider what the incarnation meant to mankind then, and especially to us today. Come and join us for the conclusion of this series this Sunday at 9 & 11 AM.
