This is the Incarnation, “And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a father’s only son, full of grace and truth.” Jesus is the only Word of God. He was born of a mother, like any other human; he is God, being of the same substance with the Father.
Jesus reveals the love of the Father in a world where not everyone is prepared to see God. Some people read the Bible, calling it, “The Word,” searching its pages, hoping to find truth, as though it could be defined with legal precision, but they are so blind they do not see.
God is love. If you look for anything else, then you will not find Jesus. His meaning was love. The Word of God became human so that humans might become God. To become like Jesus is to become love in the flesh, full of grace and truth.
