Jesus Our Light
December 12, 2014 • John 1:1-12
Somebody once said that the one thing all religions have in common is they all use candles. We don't know if that's true or not, but the idea suggests how important light is to us as a symbol. John's gospel begins with a profound theological statement about the nature and incarnation of the divine Word; as we prepare for Christmas this Advent season, we'll study this statement which can help us understand just who Jesus is, why he came to be one of us, and how it calls his followers to action.
