John 1:10 - 1:18 by Steve Gregg - The Word Made Flesh

Part 1

   

At the 2011 New Great Commission School, Bible teacher Steve Gregg gave a series of lectures on the Gospel of John. This is the first half of the second lecture, which covers verses 10-18 of the first chapter.

 

John 1:10-18

New King James Version (NKJV)
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His own,[a] and His own[b] did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

The Word Becomes Flesh

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.

15 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.’”

16 And[c] of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. 17 For the law was given through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son,[d] who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared Him.
