Preacher: Frank Acevedo, elder
Key Text: John 1:14a
Description: Matthew begins with a genealogy, Mark with an OT prophecy and Luke, a personal note. But John begins with God speaking Himself into the world in the person of His own Son. The Son, identified here as the Word, is God (1:1). The Word became man (1:14) when Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary. The facts of His birth are described in the other Gospels. John states simply that the Word became flesh; that is, He became man in bodily form and in nature.
