“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.”  John 1:1 Why did John begin his Gospel by speaking of the Word? When John speaks of the “Word” does he refer to information, a concept, an idea or something else? John does not immediately explain who the…

“He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.” Giov 1:23 John was Jesus’ cousin, but categorically denied that he was the Christ that everyone was waiting for. The really important thing that John B. did was to announce the…

“He came to his own, and his own received him not.” John 1:11 When one finds out who Jesus is and what he came to do here on earth, one should not “waste time” deciding whether or not to be on his side. The question arises: why are there so many incredulous people? When Jesus…

“For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ” John 1:17 I don’t know how much you know about the law that was given to Moses. Do you know why it was given? Many have misunderstood the purpose for which God gave the law through Moses. The true purpose…

John B. saw Jesus come to meet him and said: “Behold the Lamb of God”. The Jews understood well what it meant: the lamb, in fact, was a sacrificial animal. The lamb was a substitute and his spilled blood was used to obtain forgiveness of sins. The sacrifices of the Old Testament are “illustrations” of…

“This is he of whom I said, After me comes a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me. And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.” John 1:30-31   The above verses aroused more than a few curiosities…
