John 1:6-18

My favorite in this section is v.14: “And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us…”

I learned something new by reading the Bible footnotes: apparently the word for “made his dwelling” is similar to the Hebrew for “set up his tent” and the Aramaic (dialect that Jesus spoke) for “God’s presence.”

It’s easy to forget that: Jesus didn’t just walk around on earth; rather, he chose to “dwell” with us—and in so doing, he brought God’s presence to us.
