The Incarnate Word
The opening of John’s Gospel declares to us that “the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Then later in verse 14, we’re told that this same Word “became flesh and dwelt among us.” So why did John refer to Jesus as “the Word,” and what Old Testament themes and concepts was he alluding to? Over the next few programs, we’ll be summarizing many of the important issues that we’ve addressed in our year-long series through the Gospel of John. On this program, we’ll be focusing on Jesus’ identity as the incarnate Word.
