And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. John bore witness of Him, and cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, 'He who comes after me has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.'" For of His fulness we have all received, and grace upon grace. For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ. No man has seen God at any time; the only begotten God, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him. John 1:14-18 (NAS)

The Word Is God:

John 1:1-3 says of Jesus Christ (the Word)... "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." (NAS)

The prophet Isaiah in Isaiah 9:6 foretold of Jesus, saying:

"For a child will be born to us, a son will be given to us; and the government will rest on His shoulders; and His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace." Isaiah 9:6 (NAS)

The Father, Son and Holy Spirit:

So the Bible reveals three parts of God:

  1. God (also called the Father),
  2. the Word (also called by many names including Jesus, the Christ, Mighty God, and the Son of God), and
  3. the Holy Spirit.

When God (the Father, Son and Holy Spirit) made man, God said in Genesis 1:26-27:

"Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; and let them rule over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the sky and over the cattle and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth." And God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them." (NAS)

Later on in this lesson, we'll look further at this concept of men and women being created in the image of God.
