Mining the Scriptures: John 1:14
By Stan Cox on Dec 23, 2011

This short verse contains one of the most sublime truths ever revealed to man, “the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us.” As revealed in verses 1-3 of the text, the Word was (and is) God. As the prophet foretold, “‘Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,’ which is translated, ‘God with us’” (Matthew 1:23).

Of course, many deny this truth. “For many deceivers have gone out into the world who do not confess Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist” (2 John 7). John’s language condemns those who deny the humanity of the Son of God, “Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God” (2 John 9).

He is God’s “only begotten.” His incarnation represents glad tidings of peace, and good will. His sinless life makes Him a sufficient sacrifice. His resurrection from the dead makes him the second Adam, bringing life. His ascension and glorification will culminate with the bowing of every knee, and the confession of what so many now deny. He is truly “full of grace and truth.”
