Backstory - Advent
John 1:14-18 (NIV)
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only ˻Son˼, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:15 (John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’”) 16 Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only ˻Son˼, who is himself God andb is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known.
