John begins his Gospel account by introducing Jesus as the Word of God, echoing the opening chapters of Genesis, where God created life through his spoken word. This beginning was good, but when God’s creatures rejected his instructions, all creation spiraled into death. The world needed a new beginning, so God’s divine word spoke again, but this time, the word became a human named Jesus.
Today, we begin our journey through the book of John in chapters 1-2 as we learn from this book.
