 Who Is Jesus?: According To The Gospel Of John, Chapter 1 [all references, names, titles, etc.]

· the Word

· with God

· was God

· He was with God in the beginning.

· Through him all things were made

· In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.

· The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.

· He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.

· He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.

· Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God

· The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.

· We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

· Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given.

· For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

· No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.

· John the Baptist speaking about Jesus

à “I baptize with water but among you stands one you do not know. He is the one who comes after me, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.”

à “Look, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world!”

à “I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him…I have seen and I testify that this is God’s Chosen One.”

· John’s disciples speaking to Jesus: “Rabbi” (which means “Teacher”), “where are you staying?”

· Andrew speaking: “We have found the Messiah” (that is, the Christ).”

· Philip speaking: “We have found the one Moses wrote about in the Law, and about whom the prophets also wrote—Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.”

· “Very truly I tell you, you will see ‘heaven open, and the angels of God ascending and descending on’ the Son of Man.”
