Birth of Jesus

The Word Became Flesh

Scripture

John 1:1-18

Commentary

John takes a more theologically deep approach to the beginning of his gospel.  While the other gospels focused on Jesus' earthly heritage, John goes straight to the point in establishing that Jesus is the eternal God.

John's emphasis is on Jesus as a baby but he is not interested in the Christmas story.  The circumstances of Jesus' birth are not as important to him - nor did they need to be since his gospel was the last of the four to be written and there was no point in repeating what was already recorded.  Instead, John focuses on the event of God taking on flesh and dwelling with man.
