- “The Word” refers to Jesus. What do these verses teach about His nature? Do you think of Jesus as mostly human, mostly God or fully both? What difference does it make? (Google “Council of Nicea” to learn how the early church struggled with and resolved this issue.)
- How has Jesus brought life to you? How has Jesus replaced darkness with light in your life? Ask Jesus to help you reflect his light to others this Christmas.
John 1:1-8English Standard Version (ESV)
The Word Became Flesh
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life,[a] and the life was the light of men. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light.
