“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” John 1:1
I’ve never been great at memorizing scriptures, but John 1 is the exception. There is something so poetic and beautiful about the imagery that John gives us for the Son of God. The Word is both amorphous and completely present. This Word is completely united with the God of the Hebrew Bible and yet entirely new. The Word is the true light to which we can see all things and yet not understood at all by the people who encounter it. This is the Messiah, the one true God, who came to be with-us, Immanuel.
