At the beginning of John’s Gospel, he writes about Jesus as the Word who became a human person, the Incarnation. It is a mystery that God the Son became human and John tries to explain what it means.
The Word became a human being and, full of grace and truth, lived among us. We saw his glory, the glory which he received as the Father’s only Son.
John spoke about him. He cried out, “This is the one I was talking about when I said, ‘He comes after me, but he is greater than I am, because he existed before I was born.”
Out of the fullness of his grace he has blessed us all, giving us one blessing after another. God gave the Law through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God. It is God the only Son, who is close to the Father’s heart who has made him known.
