God living among us
  • 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.
