In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
This is how John starts his gospel account.
It parallels Genesis 1 - In the beginning, God.
So John makes it clear that God and The Word are one and the same.
He also tells us that the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.
He is the Word of God.
He is God.
Everything begins and ends with him.
He is also the one who is full of grace and truth.
And from him we receive grace upon grace.
That’s the story of the Bible.
God giving us grace in the person and work of Jesus Christ.
And that’s good news.
