1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
2 The same was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made by him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.
5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
Jesus is the Word or Logos; He is the instrument through which God's plan of redemption was made known. The Mediator between the Father and a sinful world; fully human and fully divine, Jesus is the personification and revelation of God in the flesh.
