The opening verses of the Gospel of John introduce us to Jesus without mentioning his name until verse 17. He is the eternal Word who was there "in the beginning." He is the "true Light" shining in the dark world. He was unrecognized and unwelcomed by those for whom He came. Yet, for those who welcome Him, He offers new birth and the privilege of becoming "children of God." Join us as we have the witness of John the Baptist and are introduced to the heart of why Jesus came to this world, to invite us to believe Him and receive eternal life.
