Summary of reading

This passage packs a lot of significant revelation into a very small passage about the nature of Jesus and his purpose! It talks about Jesus being God, being involved in Creation of the universe, and sitting next to God the Father in heaven. Jesus is described as being the light which overpowers darkness, one who came into the world as a human, yet was rejected by the people he primarily came to save, though some believed and received him. We also learn that John the Baptist came to witness to who Jesus was.
