John 1:1-18 – The Word

As we read through this text, we can learn a whole lot about יְהוֹשׁוּעַ Yahushua (Jesus).

  1. (4) In the beginning was (Eimi = I am, exist, be) the Word
  2. the Word was with God
  3. the Word was God;
  4. in the beginning with God
  5. all things through him did happen, and without him happened not even one thing that hath happened.
  6. In him was life,
  7. the life was the light of men
  8. the light in the darkness did shine
  9. the darkness did not perceive (katalamano = perceive, comprehended, seize gight hold of, arrest, catch, capture, appropriate, overtake) it.
  10. He was the true Light, which doth enlighten every man,
  11. coming to the world; (5) the world through him was made
  12. the world did not know him
  13. to his own things he came, and his own people did not receive (egno = Know understand) him;
  14. but as many as did receive him to them he gave authority to become sons of God —
    to those believing in his name, who –not of blood nor of a will of flesh, nor of a will of man but — of God were begotten.
  15. the Word became flesh,
  16. did tabernacle among us,
  17. we beheld his glory,
  18. glory as of an only begotten of a father,
  19. full of grace (charis = gift, blessing brought to man by Jesus) and truth.
  20. out of his fulness did we all receive, and grace over-against grace; the grace and the truth through Jesus
  21. the Christ did come; (18) the only begotten Son,)
  22. who is on the bosom of the Father

We also learn a little bit about ourselves, as receivers and believers.

… but as many as did receive him to them he

  1. gave authority to become sons of God
  2. to those believing in his name, who –not of blood nor of a will (thelematos = will, wishes, desires) of flesh, nor of a will of man (aner = man; husband, a male human being, gentlemen) but — of God were begotten (monogenes = begotten, of children, only born; one and only)

And of God

  1. no one hath ever seen;
  2. the only begotten Son, he did declare.
