What is the meaning of John Chapter 1 in the Bible? ?
- PubliusLv 74 months ago
The Word of God, Jesus Christ, was in the beginning with God, and he was also a god. More accurately, one of the lords, or lesser divine beings.
As far as we know, everything in this universe was created by Jesus Christ (except God also participated in the formation of man).
Jesus is the source of eternal life for us, but evil people don't comprehend it.
John the Baptist bore record of Jesus Christ, preparing us to believe in Jesus Christ.
We all have the light of Christ, or a conscience, and we start out basically good in nature.
11, 12 The Jews (at least their leaders) largely rejected Jesus Christ, but if we cooperate with him, he gives us the power to become the sons of God.
14 Jesus Christ is the begotten son of God and is full of grace and truth.
18 No, some people have seen God, like Jesus and Adam. Jesus teaches about God and sometimes shows him to us.
John the Baptist denied being the Messiah, Elijah, and the prophet greater than Moses who would institute the second Covenant. He was just someone sent to prepare people for the Messiah/prophet/son of God.
He bore witness to people that Jesus of Nazareth is Jehovah, the Messiah, the prophet greater than Moses, and the son of God.
The rest of the chapter shows Jesus choosing his first disciples. Oh, and when Jesus calls himself the son of The Man, he is calling himself the son of God.

That God sent his only-begotten Son to the earth.
This is important, because through out the rest of John's Gospel, John proves time and again, that Jesus is not 'God' but God's representative.
The one sent by God to do, not his own will, but the will of God.
Prior to writing his Gospel, John had written the Revelation.
In this book, John tells us about the God and Father of the heavenly glorified Jesus Christ. (Revelation 1:5,6)
In this book, John tells us God gave the Revelation to Jesus. (Revelation 1:1)
In this book, we are to honor Jesus because Jesus died for our sins. (Revelation 5:9)
Trinitarians want people to believe John changed his message in his Gospel.
That Jesus goes from being the Son of God, to God the Son. A statement John nor any of the other writers of God's word says.
Jesus as God's appointed Judge.
Jesus as God's appointed King.
Jesus who lived and worked along side his God and Father for eons of time, has become a god, a powerful being.
Thayer's defines 'god' as:
4) whatever can in any respect be likened unto God, or resemble him in any way
4a) God’s representative or viceregent
4a1) of magistrates and judges
Jesus as God's image, God's representative and God's judge, is worthy of the title 'god'.
This does not make Jesus the only true God, as Jesus himself tells us. (John 17:3)

THE BEGINNING OF JOHN 1:1-5 IS A REFERENCE BACK TO GENESIS 1 ABOUT THE WORD OF YHVH GOD, YESHUA THE LIGHT AND WORD OF GOD.
THE REST OF JOHN TELLS OF JOHN THE BAPTIST WHO WAS SENT TO BRING WITNESS TO THE LIGHT OF GOD, AND THE WORD WAS MADE FLESH AND CAME AND DWELT AMONG US VS 14. JOHN BEARS WITNESSS OF THE MINISTRY OF YESHUA THE MESSIAH, HIS BAPTISM, BEING FILLED WITH THE HOLY SPIRIT AND HIS CHOOSING OF 12 DISCIPLES. JOHN'S MINISTRY ENDED AND YESHUA'S BEGAN.

First, you should know that John was over 100 years old, blind, senile, and under the scrutiny of the Romans, when his disciple wrote for him around 101A.D.; over 30 years after the other Gospels. John's ego, and jealousy and envy of Peter was a detrimental.
1. John wanted to out do Peter by recording what he felt were important facts other Gospels had missed.
2. As Christians continued to talk of Jesus, the Roman government asserted that Jews were no longer monotheist and should therefore worship Roman gods also. To dispel this notion, John attempted to convince the Roman government that Jesus and God were one and the same. Unfortunately, JOHN HAS DECEIVED CHRISTIANS also.
John began by trying to explain that Jesus Christ was alway present with God. Unfortunately, John doesn't know the difference between Christ the Son of God, and Jesus the son of man. Christ, anointed with the WORD(MIND) of God, is there from the beginning. Jesus, on the other hand, was born Born Wednesday, August 21, 7B.C..
1. Christ is the Son of God.
2. Jesus is the son of man;
3. Christ lived in Jesus as Christ can live in all. Jesus' last name wasn't Christ.
Verse 6. Begans description of Jesus baptism, calling of Apostles, and beginning of ministry.
HOPE THIS GETS YOU STARTED; It would take hours to explain the entire chapter.

That the Lord Jesus Christ is God and Savior. Here is the truth: Death leads to immediate heaven or hell. The only way to have eternal life, the only way to be in heaven and avoid hell, is by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ (John 6:47). It is that simple and that easy. It is too late to be saved after death. Jesus is God and Jesus died on the cross and shed His blood to pay for all of our sins in full, and then Jesus was buried, and then Jesus resurrected from the dead (1 Corinthians 15:3-4). The Lord Jesus Christ paid for our sins with His death and blood. Nothing else pays for our sins, not works from us or anything else. You cannot add any works to getting into heaven (Romans 4:5).
