Mining the Scriptures: John 1:15-18

Image

In the previous verse, the apostle John affirmed that Jesus, the Word, came to earth and lived among us. He now states that John the Baptist testified that Jesus is indeed the Son of God (cf. vs. 34).

John the Baptist was the forerunner of Jesus, prophesied about in Isaiah 40:3, “The voice of one crying in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord’” (vs. 23). His ministry heralded the coming of the Christ.

The apostle now affirms that we have received the unmerited favor of God in the sending of that Christ, Jesus (16). Just as Moses was the means through which God gave Israel His law, Jesus is the means through which God grants salvation by Grace (17). It is through Jesus that God is manifested to man. Without Jesus, we can not know God. With Him, all things are made clear, including His plans for our redemption.

Mining the Scriptures: Matthew 1:18-25

Shovel4

The circumstances of Jesus’ birth are established forthrightly by Matthew and Luke. While modernists struggle with the concept of a child being born of a virgin, the believer accepts God’s intent, purpose and ability to bring this event about.

Matthew reveals the following in this short section of his gospel:

  1. After Joseph and Mary were betrothed (a type of engagement), Mary became pregnant.
  2. At this time Mary was a virgin, the conception was the work of the Holy Spirit.
  3. Joseph was informed of God’s plan, and scuttled his plans to put away Mary (as he obviously had thought from her pregnancy that she had been with another man).
  4. God’s plan was that the virgin would bear a son named Jesus, who would be the Savior of mankind (vs. 21).
  5. The birth of Jesus was a fulfillment of prophecy (Isaiah 7:14). That prophecy refers to the child as “Immanuel” which means “God with us.” Thus, Jesus was declared from birth to be God on earth (cf. John 1:14).
  6. In answer to the vision from God, Joseph did not have sexual relations with his wife until after she gave birth to Jesus.

This account marks the beginning of the events leading to the ultimate redemption of mankind (cf. John 17:3).

Sermon: The Incarnate Word

Lesson 8 of 8 in a series on Awesome Texts.

In John 1, the apostle affirms that Jesus is the Eternal God, Who created the universe and everything in it, Who came to earth as a man, and Who became the Light of the world, declaring the Father, as the Savior of Mankind.
