Tell Me The Story of Jesus (John 1:1-14)Pastor Justin Pratt, November 30, 2014
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
As we wrap up the Thanksgiving Day Holiday and enter into the Christmas season, we are reminded that this is a very special time of year. We've just wrapped up a time of family, when we come together to give thanks for the blessings of the last year. Christmas is on the horizon; a time when we celebrate the birth of our Savior.
But what is the story of Jesus? Did it begin in a manger? And why did He come anyway? This morning's message, Tell Me the Story of Jesus, takes a look at what John has to say about these questions. It might just surprise you.

1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2The same was in the beginning with God. 3All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4In him was life; and the life was the light of men. 5And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not. 6There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. 8He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. 10He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. 11He came unto his own, and his own received him not. 12But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: 13Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. (KJV)
