Second Sunday of Christmas
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 uses the same words to describe Jesus that the Jewish scholars used to describe the Torah, which we now call the Old Testament, but which was the complete Bible at that time.
John is saying that Jesus is the Bible come to life as an ordinary human being, so that we might see the Bible lived out in ordinary daily living, and so that everyone can experience the Bible in everyday terms.

2. What does John mean when he says the Word became a human being?
