Jesus 101 - Part 4

October 14, 2012 Speaker: Ken Ramey Series: Believe & Live

Topic: Gospel of John Passage: John 1:14–1:17

John 1:14-17

In the first eighteen verses of his gospel. John provided a basic introduction to who Jesus is and why He came to earth and what our response to Him should and shouldn't be. There are EIGHT TRUTHS about Jesus are repeated again and again throughout John's Gospel:

This morning Pastor Ramey teaches on the greatest, most mysterious truth - the doctrine of INCARNATION. There is no better explanation of the doctrine of Incarnation than the final section of John's prologue in John 1.

1. Origination - Jesus has always existed (vv. 1-2)

2. Creation - Jesus created everything (v. 3)

3. Illumination - Jesus illuminated the darkness (vv. 4-5)

4. Attestation - Jesus was confirmed by John (vv. 6-8)

5. Rejection - He was rejected by His own (vv. 9-11)

6. Regeneration - He granted salvation to many (vv. 12-13)

7. Incarnation - He embodied God (vv. 14-17)
a) Jesus physically embodied God's glory and became flesh (cf Luke 1:26)
b) Jesus eternally existed in God's presence
c) Jesus totally epitomized God's nature
d) Jesus perfectly accomplished God's plan
e) Jesus clearly explained God's heart (v. 18; cf John 6:46; 1 John 4:12)

8. Explanation - He explained God (v. 18)

Thank God for allowing you to see Him and know Him through His Son Jesus Christ. Ask Him to enlarge your view of Jesus so it makes a profound difference in your life and the lives of others.
