The Word Became Flesh

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” John 1:14

 

“The Word”. That is what John the apostle called Jesus Christ in the opening of his gospel. An unusual phrase and yet for the Greeks and Jews of his day it was a familiar one. In their language the word was ‘Logos’. Unlike, the book of Genesis, which begins with creation, John reaches back into eternity past and begins with God. “In the beginning was the Word…” The eternal God, the ‘logos’ who we know is the Lord Jesus Christ. What did it mean for Jesus to be called ‘The Logos’? The apostle must have astounded his readers when he revealed what he meant when he described Jesus as the Logos. To realize The Word or Logos became flesh is to sense in the spirit one of the most magnificent miracles in the bible. In this sermon I hope to express John’s wonderment of this historic event and expound the meaning of “The Word Became Flesh”.
