Take out your Bible and look up the scripture (or you can find it on Bible Gateway). Over the next week we invite you to sit down (by yourself or even better) with your small group, a friend, family member or soul-mate, and (think about) discuss the following questions:
Why does John’s gospel begin “In the beginning” rather than at Jesus’ birth?
What facts about “the Word” can you find in verses 1-5? Verses 10-18?
Who or what fails to comprehend the light (vv. 5,10-11)? Why?
From the image of receiving someone (v. 12), how would you explain what faith is about? What is the result of this type of faith?
How would someone “full of grace and truth” treat others?
From this passage, how can a person come to know God?
