Who is the Word/Logos? [John 1:1]

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.

And here is the quote we read regarding this in Sunday Seminary:

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 eternal – He has always existed and did not come into existence at a point in time.
  • The Word is personal – He is not a force, but a person, and that eternally. He has always been in communion with the Father.
  • The Word is deity – The Word is God as to His nature [essence/being].

– James White, The Forgotten Trinity, 1998

For further study you can listen to Pastor Emilio Ramos‘ entire sermon “The Logos: Introduced, Described, & Defined” from his series in the Gospel of John below:
