The Word Became Flesh
  • The Word became flesh and lived among us for a while and we beheld his glory. ''John 1:14''

    That word ?lived among us? is an interesting word. John is the only one to use it. It`s the Greek word ?skenoo? and comes from the word ?to pitch a tent, ? from the Greek word for ?tent.? It`s from the Old Testament, from the Greek version of the Old Testament story about God and the Tabernacle. Jesus came in and ?pitched a tent?,and ?tabernacled? among us. In going from the Tabernacle to Jesus, it`s like God has taken His next step in this idea,and we beheld His glory.

    Omnipotent God
    I believe that this explanation of the Word becoming flesh is an especially powerful and poetic way to describe Jesus.  When I hear this, I think about God's words coming into being as a person: full of perfection, grace, humility, and purpose.  This also reminds me that Jesus present at Creation and reminds me of the We discussed in Genesis.  Furthermore, I believe that God understood the difficulties that humans would have attempting to comprehend what they could not see.  In God's infinite wisdom, he sent us His character in the flesh to serve as a living example.  Remember, God spoke to the people and they still made an image; God provided a way out of Egypt, but the people still did not believe.  God understands that humans are limited in their understanding of things that are not tangible.

    If Jesus does not offer His life for the wages of our sins, is there any chance that GOd allowing us to go to heaven if we follow his will, by following what is written by some of the prophets?

    In-order to convince the Earthly people
    This serve to testify to the living beings that God won't only appear by dark clouds or big voice signs. But He sent His sons who flesh like any other human being in order to save the world. If you read in Ezekiel 36-16,37-4, we understand how the word of God connected with Ezekiel. The word of God "cuts all the way through, to where soul and spirit meet, to where joints and marrow come together" Hebrew 4: 12. God made it purposely that the word of God to become flesh so that we may believe.

    The Word Became Flesh

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.
    All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. And the Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came as a witness, that he might testify about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but was sent that he might testify about the light. That was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world. He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.
    He came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.
    But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw His glory, such glory as of the one and only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth. John bore witness of Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me is preferred before me, for He was before me.’”
    And of His fullness we all received grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses. Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has seen God at any time. The one and only Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
