John: Why Did He Come?

John 1:9-18

If you read John 1:1-3, those verses describe the “Word” (Jesus) as being the divine, eternal creator of the universe. Those verses alone take our breath away. But read down a bit in verse 14: “And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” Jolting, isn’t it? Why would he do that? Why would the eternal, divine creator become “flesh” and live among us? That’s what we’re going to explore together this week in the Gospel of John.
