Bearing Witness

Ever since the time of Christ, people have wondered exactly who he is. Perhaps you have had that same question. I would invite you to listen carefully to what the Gospel of John has to say. Since John wrote his Gospel so that we would believe that Jesus is the Christ, it is no accident that his opening scene is of a witness to Jesus' true identity. There is nothing like reliable eye-witness testimony to establish the facts of the case.

The Witness to the Light of Life - John 1:19-34

“God was manifested in the flesh,
Vindicated by the Spirit,

Seen by angels,

Proclaimed among the nations,

Believed on in the world,

Taken up in glory!”
