John 1:14

Dr. Ronnie Wolfe

The Word here, of course, is Jesus. He was the one who was made flesh. He was the one who dwelt among us. He was the one who had the glory as of the only begotten of the Father. He is the one who was full of grace and truth. This is our Savior. He came from above and is from above, not from the earth.  John 8:23 And he said unto them, Ye are from beneath; I am from above: ye are of this world; I am not of this world.

The "we" in this verse speaks of the people who saw Jesus with their physical eyes, who touched him with the physical hands, who heard with their physical ears the words of wisdom and instruction that he preached and taught along his way.   1 John 1:1 That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, of the Word of life;

This Word of life has been seen by us, also, through faith; and that is the great mystery of the Gospel and the great comfort to us, for we are blessed by it.  John 20:29 Jesus saith unto him, Thomas, because thou hast seen me, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and yet have believed.

We can see Him with our eye of faith, and we can comprehend him commensurate with the level of grace he bestows upon us as we study His word. John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

We can also hear his words and are blessed:   Rev. 1:3 Blessed is he that readeth, and they that hear the words of this prophecy, and keep those things which are written therein: for the time is at hand.

It is God's great grace that has revealed God's Son to us through the Gospel, and it is that Gospel that is the power of God unto salvation (Rom. 1:16).

The Bible's instruction to us is:   Mark 1:15 And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
