John 1:1-18

  1. Why is Jesus called here ‘the Word’?
    What is his relation to God; to the world; to men?
    See the whole passage.
  2. Who does not, and who does become a child of God?
    By what means is one brought into this new status?
  3. Note all the allusions to ‘light’ and associated ideas (e.g., ‘glory’) in this passage.
    How much of the purpose of Jesus’ coming does this explain?
