The Greatness of Christ (John 1:1-13)

After taking a big-picture look at The Gospel of John in our first study, we now begin Sunday walking through John’s Gospel. In the prologue to his work, John sets the stage for the rest of the gospel, making staggering observations about the greatness of Jesus. There is enough here to keep our minds and hearts engaged in countless hours of study and reflection. But this greatness is not distant or out of reach. John tells us that Jesus, the light, has entered into our darkness that we may become children of God. In this passage, the greatness of Christ is expressed through the love of Christ for a broken and sinful people.
