The Living Word

Joh 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
Joh 1:3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Joh 1:5 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

In the beginning was the Word, capitalized referring to a name of a person. GOD IS, He is a person. The Word was with God. The person, the personality of the Word was with God. Before I go any further it is understood that the LORD God is one LORD.

Deu 6:4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:

LORD: Yehovah

God is Spirit, Jesus explained this.

Joh 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.

One God who Is spirit, made known to us in three forms of the one God. God the Father, God the Son (the Word) and God the Holy Spirit. The LORD God has chosen to reveal himself in this way for our redemption. We were all lost because of sin and the sin nature.

The Word was in the beginning with God. God has no beginning so what is the beginning? I see it as the beginning of all things created, because all things were made by the Word and without Him was not anything made.

Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

Heb 1:9 Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.
Heb 1:10 And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:
Heb 1:11 They shall perish; but thou remainest;...

The Word has no known beginning.

Jesus is our great high priest after Melchisedec, who had no known beginning or end.

Heb 7:1 For this Melchisedec, king of Salem, priest of the most high God, who met Abraham returning from the slaughter of the kings, and blessed him;
Heb 7:2 To whom also Abraham gave a tenth part of all; first being by interpretation King of righteousness, and after that also King of Salem, which is, King of peace;
Heb 7:3 Without father, without mother, without descent, having neither beginning of days, nor end of life; but made like unto the Son of God; abideth a priest continually.

The man Jesus was born of Mary, but his spirit is the Word eternal.

Joh 8:58 Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am.

In him was life and this life was the light of men. Light makes things seen, and by seeing we are able to walk clearly and make clear decisions. Jesus is spiritual light and truth and he is the way to God and everlasting life.

Joh 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Joh 6:40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day.

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

Joh 1:11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
Joh 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
Joh 1:13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
Joh 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Jesus is the Living Word.

1Jn 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;
1Jn 1:2 (For the life was manifested, and we have seen it, and bear witness, and shew unto you that eternal life, which was with the Father, and was manifested unto us;)
1Jn 1:3 That which we have seen and heard declare we unto you, that ye also may have fellowship with us: and truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with his Son Jesus Christ.

Jesus is a life giving spirit.

1Co 15:47 The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second man is the Lord from heaven.
1Co 15:48 As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy: and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly.
1Co 15:49 And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly.

Joh 5:25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God: and they that hear shall live.
Joh 5:26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself
