The Word Became Flesh

John 1: 1-18 is the text for today, the glorious prologue of the Gospel of John. As a preacher, it is akin to writing a paragraph describing Mt Everest, or a sentence to describe my marriage. Every word and phrase is dense with meaning and truth. The prologue does not describe the rest of the book, but contains it in distilled form. THE WORD BECAME FLESH AND DWELT AMONG US!
A friend who is from an evangelical background and married a Roman Catholic shared that she always heard "the Word" and understood it to be "the Bible" until she started worshiping at the Catholic church and participates in a Bible study there. There, she says, "the Word" always means "Jesus." The beginning of 2009 with all the woundedness of 2008 and fears about the future are bound and found in the Word....Jesus.
