ISAIAH 61:10-62:5
PS 147:13-20
GALATIANS 3:23-4:7
JOHN 1:1-18

Whatever else John is going to tell us in his Gospel,  his stunning prologue sets the scene for the story of God and the world, not just the story of one character in one place and time.

 It’s about the creator God acting in a new way within his much-loved creation.

 It's about the way in which the long story that began in Genesis is reaching the climax the creator has always intended.

 And it will all come about through the Word.
