When I decided to post the Sunday Bible Study it was in response to some of my blogger friends. If you don’t like this, you don’t need to read or comment. I ask that you respect this post and our right to share. You may share your thoughts on your own blog. But I do hope that most of you will enjoy this. I don’t intend to give a lot of advice. I will share a verse and the footnotes and tell you were you can buy the same bible.
The Gospel According to John
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
In the beginning means in eternity past. As the introduction to this Gospel, this chapter begins in eternity past with God, who had divinity but not humanity (v.1)…there’s a lot more.
The Word is the definition, explanation, and expression of God; hence, it is God defined, explained, and expressed.
The Word is not separate from God. It is not that the Word is the Word and God is God, and that they are thus separate from each other. Rather, the two are one; hence, the next clause says that the Word was God.
That the Word is God implies that God in His person is not simple; He is triune.
Not God the Son only, but the complete Triune God.
