Musings on…. John 1:1-5

Standard

1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, (Or was not any thing made. That which has been made was life in him)
 and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

I was playing around with these verses, wanting to outline it or show how He [Jesus] pertained to all those words.

Has these verses affected you in any way?

  1. In latin, Lucifer means bringer of the light. After his fall from heaven, you could say he became darkness. If you look at the last phrase on your list, then it becomes obvious that the devil has not overcome Christ.
    ~~ i think you are looking at it backwards, i think it means the darkness has not overcome the light, it means the light [Jesus] has shone [thru] in the darkness [mens hearts, lives, souls] and the darkness could not or did not overcome the light, which is Christ, or Christ in us. does that make sense?
