When we read the Bible most people interpret or see things a little bit differently than others. If you were reading the Bible piece by piece, or each book individually, you may not get the full understanding or background of what was happening in that time. An example of what can be misinterpreted is in the Gospel of John when he is referring to the “Word”. When some discuss the Bible they talk about the word as the scripture, but these are two very different things. Scripture in itself are the words written by God, but the “Word” spoken of in the Bible is the divine entity, Jesus Christ. The Gospel of Johns

Which goes to show before the Universe existed Jesus Christ had already been created, this is a strong and powerful statement testifying to His Deity. John is intensely presenting the truth which is the basis of all truth that we believe as Christians, that Jesus Christ is Deity, Jesus is God.
John explains to the people that “Jesus is the Son of God” (John 1:34). He tells them that Jesus is the incarnated Word of God, and that he brings grace and truth. The purpose of this gospel, as stated by John himself, is to show that Jesus of Nazareth was Christ, the Son of God, and that believers in him might have eternal life. In reading the book of John, I learned that John was showing Jesus as having the divine word within him and that all of the tremendous things that Jesus accomplishes were through the power of God.
Since God was present in Jesus we can see the relationship of the divine and the human, hence why Jesus is referred to as the Son of God. I believe this is also why we, the believers, are known as God’s children as well. As believers and followers of God’s will, God can live through us and we can spread His love and will. "Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God." (John

    Benchmark: Gospel Essentials Introduction A worldview is a foundation of set assumptions to which one person commits to and lives their lives according to their belief in this worldview. Everyone has a different worldview that is both supported by faith and reason. The Christian Worldview consists of God, Humanity, Jesus, and the Restoration. This view does not contain just one’s personal faith expression, it’s an all- around, all-consuming way of life. The Christian worldview affirms that God is almighty and sovereign Lord of all existence because He created everything from the beginning.…

    Our Salvation is an inseparable link to faith in Jesus Christ. That is why it is so important to determine biblically who Jesus Christ is. Is Jesus God in the flesh? Or was he just a man? The Book of Acts contributes many things to help support the deity of Christ, such as he is worshiped, He bears the names and titles of deity, He has the same life giving power that God has, and he shed his own blood.…

    The infallible and inerrant Bible strongly supports the humanity and divinity of Jesus. Paul, for instance, biblically writes a pastoral letter to Timothy that intensely supports both of natures of Jesus. I Timothy 3:16 reveals concisely states, “…God was manifest in flesh…” When Paul wrote I Tim. 3:16, he was writing concerning the identity of Jesus. Subsequently revealing that Jesus is both God (Paul said that “God” was manifest in flesh) and human (Paul also said that God was manifest in “flesh”).…

    That salvation, justification and grace is only received by faith in the Messiah who made the way for all mankind to be clean before the Lord. Therefore, chapter 4 highlights two great fathers of the faith - one, Abraham, being justified before the law, and the other, David, being justified after the law – and also highlights both salvation and faith. As Paul established the precedent and legitimacy of salvation only by faith and not by works. Abraham understood the principle of justification by faith; it is by believing – not by boasting, works, nor earning (1 Corinthians 4:7) – that Abraham trusted the words of God (Genesis 15:1-6). Similarly, David, a man fully in love with the Father, put his entire trust and dependence on the God who would always save and deliver him.…

    This means that what Jesus says in the New Testament is most likely the most accurate version of what he taught. According to the Biblical account, Jesus Christ claimed a great number of times to be the Son of God directly, through declaration of his oneness with God, and by multiple inferences made in his explanations…

    The present kingdom brings an eternal fulfillment of God’s promise of salvation in Christ. After Christ’s resurrection and assentation begins the stage of the kingdom which we live in now, the proclaimed kingdom. This may be one of the most exciting stages of the kingdom. In this age, we have assurance in Christ’s work on the cross in a way unlike people of the Old Testament. They had faith in the salvation they knew was coming we have faith in the salvation we know has already come and we have the privilege to “make disciples of all nations” (ESV.…

    According to John, Jesus is the center of life in this re-created world because he is the center of light. This is a reference to Genesis 1:1-3, when God says “Let there be light,” and there was light. John believes that the light that God creates is the Word. As a result of the Word being the center of light, this gives a new type of spiritual life to God’s people. By acquiring this spiritual life, Christians are able to witness and understand God’s greatness and glory.…

    Having the “image” or “likeness” of God means that we were made to resemble God. We were created in his righteousness and perfect innocence, which is a reflection of God’s holiness. God put each and every one of us in this world for a reason. He based us off a reflection of himself because he is perfect and almighty. We, as living Christians, have a story.…

    Indeed, this book shows that the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit are one God, yet they each have important roles to play in the process of salvation. I consider the unity and diversity of the Trinity to be the great theological contribution of this book. Athanasius asserts the presence of the Trinity at the very beginning of God’s plan for humankind, creation. In that section, he refers to Christ as the “Word” which references John 1:1-3. This affirms that Jesus and God are one.…

    With this cycle model, the reader sees that the offspring of man alluded to in Jesus’ title Son of Man are not physical sons but spiritual sons in that God’s spirit is passed on as a light over and over. The Inclusion of God the Spirit implies that God is everyone—at least everyone who believes in and accepts Jesus Christ—on account of his spirit being given to all who believe in Him. The Father-Son relationship cycle is representative of God’s Spirit flowing through his creation. It simply shows the breadth of his power. “As you, Father, are in me and I am in you, may they also be in us…The glory that you have given me I have given them, so that they may be one, as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become completely one, so that the world may know you have sent me and have loved them as you have loved me” (John 17:21-23) God’s immanence manifests in all who…
