John 1—Word. •Prologue of the Word: the first five verses of John are the greatest introduction of Christ found in Scripture. They tell of the relationship of Christ (the Word) to God (He is God), to the galaxies (He created them), and to the Gospel (He is the Savior). •Proclamation of the Word: the work of John the Baptist which included his calling (“sent to bear witness of that light”); his clarification (he was not the Christ but was inferior to Him); his communication (Christ is the Lamb of God). •Pursuit of the Word: by early disciples. It involved the inspiring of the pursuit (the preaching of John the Baptist), inquiry in the pursuit (Christ was asked where He lived), instructing of the pursuers (Christ showed them where He lived and convinced them He was the Messiah), and increase in pursuers (first disciples win others to Christ). -Butler’s Daily Bible Reading
