John 1:14-18 – Among the Bible verses that rank up there in the top 10 most significant sayings in scripture, this is certainly among them. “The Word because flesh and dwelt among us.” This amazing sentence describes the beginning of the focal point of all of history. Why? What’s the significance of the Word becoming flesh?
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”) 16 And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.
