Jesus Is the Living Word of God

John 1: 10 - 18

This passage from John, which is
difficult and mystical on the surface, is much more plain-spoken than we realize.

John the Evangelist uses the same words to describe Jesus that the Jewish scholars used to describe the Torah, the first five books of what we now call the Old Testament.
