Reflections Along the Jesus Way

December 19, 2023 – Quote for the Day:

 “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was with God in the beginning (John 1:1-2).  While many stories begin with the words ‘once upon a time’ John’s Christmas story, about eternity invading human time and space… begins with the words ‘in the beginning.’  Instead of telling us about ‘once upon a time’ the sense here is ‘once before time.’ John writes about ‘in the beginning’ – before time existed, before time began, before the creation of the world as we know it, and before God came into the world in the person of Jesus… He came from outside time into time.”
