The gospel of John begins with the words “In the beginning was the Word,” and so he begins his beautiful and stunning portrayal of his dear friend and Lord, Jesus Christ. The most important person we can ever know is Jesus, and the clearest place to begin is in this book by his beloved disciple, John.
