If you were in Sunday Seminary last week then you remembered the presentation went haywire once we started discussing John 1:1 regarding the Trinity and showing from Scripture that Jesus is fully God. It was then I [Jason Delgado] recommended that you listen to Pastor Emilio Ramos’ exposition on John 1:1.
I clipped that sermon down into 4 parts that talk about the points presented in John 1:1 that I was dealing with in regards to our topic… the identity and description of the Word [Greek: Logos] who is with God and is God.
Listen to the 3 minute clip below dealing with the first phrase in John 1:1:

In summary, then, what do we find in John 1:1? In a matter of only 17 short Greek words, John communicates the following truths:

- The Word is deity – The Word is God as to His nature [essence/being].
– James White, The Forgotten Trinity, 1998
