The Word Became Flesh (A Throwback Thursday Podcast)

John 1-1-webIt’s one of the most important verses in all of the Bible. One of the most profound pronouncements ever recorded about who Jesus truly is.

And yet for so many of us, these individually simple words, when strung together as John did, become so difficult to understand. Just try to explain them to someone, and you will see what I mean. Which is too bad, really, because the truths contained in this one verse are in every sense of the word PRICELESS.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1).

As you will hear in this PODCAST, these three amazing phrases form the foundation upon which our faith, and therefore our lives, rests.

That being said, truth be told, whenever we read them, no bugles start blaring, no angelic choirs start singing, no lightning bolts start flashing, nor rolling thunder start booming.

When I read them publicly, they never seem to elicit from anyone any audible ooohs or aaahs, even though they are surely deserving of such wonder and amazement.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1).

As someone said to me just recently,

My mind has always just sort of glazed over that verse.

I can see why.

Yet, as you are about to hear, their meaning is profound-yet-practical; their message so staggering-yet-simple.

Once you hear them explained as John originally intended them to be understood, you will no doubt agree that it would be impossible for us — impossible for us — to overstate the importance of this opening verse that introduces us to the Gospel According to John.

For this reason alone, I am thrilled that you are here to listen and to learn. May your faith be strengthened exponentially as you consider the awe-inspiring, life-altering truth that…

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (John 1:1).

PLEASE remember that depending upon your connection speed and web browser, it may take up to 60 seconds before the podcast will begin to play.

God bless you as you listen.
