What does John mean when he says that the Word incarnate possessed a glory as the only one from the Father? How does it open for us a window into the essence of the relationships between the Three Persons of the Triune Godhead? What significance does it have for us today? Join us today as we study and meditate upon this crucial phrase in John 1:14.
The substance of John's gospel is that Jesus uniquely manifests the glory of God to those who are lost in darkness. John and the other eyewitnesses beheld Jesus' glory in person, and now his gospel invites you and I to see it as well that we might believe. Listen to today's sermon and ask God to help you apply the substance of John 1:14 to your life.
We continue our study of John 1:14 by looking at John's association of glory with Jesus, with the Old Testament association of God's glory with redemption.
The world of fallen humanity is not friends with God. This is what we see in John 1:10 where we are told that when God himself came to the world he had made, instead of welcoming him and worshiping him, it shunned him.
