Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

 

John 1

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

The same was in the beginning with God.

All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

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

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

10 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

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:

13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

Can it be more perfectly said?

    • Oh yes, I do love the Gospels so much, but the opening chapter of John (and, indeed, the entire book) is such an eye-opener. New believers are advised to start reading the Bible at John, and I’m not surprised. It’s perfect.
      Being somewhat clueless, two or three years ago, I started at Genesis. When I was bored of Moses (I’m sorry, but I was. I was twelve years old. I could only stand so much of one guy who wasn’t Jesus. Moses made me mad when he disobeyed God during the water-from-a-rock story), I alternated between Exodus and Matthew, and when I reached the end I started again at the beginning. Now reading John and 2 Samuel for the second time – a chapter of each a day – my Bible study plan may be somewhat simplistic, but it works for me.
