(Dr. Elias Rodriguez) John 1:14: “And the Word became flesh and lived among us, and we have seen his glory, the glory as of a Father’s only son, full of grace and truth.” There are things that are physically impossible: for example, it is impossible to keep all the wind of this world in one room. It is impossible to pour all the water of the ocean in one bottle. Only the thought of such a task is perplexing.

That is exactly what happens to me when I think about Jesus. It amazes me to think about Jesus being “in the beginning with God” creating the whole universe. John states that “all things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being” (John 1:1–3, NRSV). Paul puts it this way:

“He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created through him and for him. He himself is before all things, and in him all things hold together” (Col. 1:15–17, NRSV). READ MORE
