  1. God Pitched His Tent Among Us Created by David Turner www.Biblestudies-online.com John1:14a And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us

  2. Jesus (The Word) is the Creator (John 1:1-5).

  3. John teaches us that Jesus is the Creator • Jesus was before creation • Jesus was with God at the creation John 1:1a In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God,

  4. John teaches us that Jesus is the Creator Colossians 1:15-17 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. (16) For by Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities--all things have been created through Him and for Him. (17) He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together • Jesus was before creation • Jesus was with God at the creation • Jesus was qualitatively equal with God at creation John 1:1a In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. Hebrews 1:1-3 God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, (2) in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. (3) And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power.

  5. John teaches us that Jesus is the Creator • Jesus was before creation • Jesus was with God at the creation • Jesus was qualitatively equal with God at creation • Jesus created all things John 1:1a In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (2) He was in the beginning with God. (3) All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

  6. John teaches us that Jesus is the Creator • Jesus was before creation • Jesus was with God at the creation • Jesus was qualitatively equal with God at creation • Jesus created all things • Jesus was the life giving force of creation John 1:1a In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (2) He was in the beginning with God. (3) All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.(4)In Him was Life,

  7. John teaches us that Jesus is the Creator John 1:1-4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (2) He was in the beginning with God. (3) All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. (4)In Him Was Life, and the Life was the Light of men. • Jesus was before creation • Jesus was with God at the creation • Jesus was qualitatively equal with God at creation • Jesus created all things • Jesus was the life giving force of creation • Jesus, the life-giver, is the light of people (men)

  8. If Jesus is God and God (the Father) is God, doesn’t that mean that there are two Gods?

  9. NO! The Bible teaches that there is a plurality within the Godhead, but that there is only one God.

  10. The plurality of God is taught in Genesis Gen. 1:1 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. • The name of the Creator, Elohim is plural.

  11. The plurality of God is taught in Genesis Gen. 1:2 …And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters • The name of the Creator, Elohim is plural. • The Father, Son and Spirit are present. • The plurality of the name • The activity of the Spirit

  12. The plurality of God is taught in Genesis Gen. 1:3,6,9,11,14,20,24, 26 …And God said, … • The name of the Creator, Elohim is plural. • The Father, Son and Spirit are present. • The plurality of the name • The activity of the Spirit • The activity of the Word, “and God said”

  13. The plurality of God is taught in Genesis Genesis 1:26-29 Then God said, "Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; • The name of the Creator, Elohim is plural. • The Father, Son and Spirit are present. • The plurality of the name • The activity of the Spirit • The activity of the Word, “and God said” • The creation of man (Adam) points to the plurality of God • A plurality within the Godhead made man.

  14. The plurality of God is taught in Genesis Gen. 1:27 God created man in His own image, in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. • The name of the Creator, Elohim is plural. • The Father, Son and Spirit are present. • The plurality of the name • The activity of the Spirit • The activity of the Word, “and God said” • The creation of man (Adam) points to the plurality of God • A plurality within the Godhead made man. • Man (Adam –singular), is the image of God and is declared in the plural (Adam is male and female).

  15. Gen. 2:23,24 The man said, "This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man." (24) For this reason a man shall leave his father and his mother, and be joined to his wife; and they shall become one flesh. The plurality of God is taught in Genesis • The name of the Creator, Elohim is plural. • The Father, Son and Spirit are present. • The plurality of the name • The activity of the Spirit • The activity of the Word, “and God said” • The creation of man (Adam) points to the plurality of God • A plurality within the Godhead made man. • Man (Adam –singular), is the image of God and is declared in the plural (Adam is male and female). • Woman comes from man and the two are one

  16. The Bible has many more declarations that Jesus is the God of Creation. It is a primary theme of John’s Gospel. For time sake we will mention just two more. Both are from John, chapter 1.

  17. John the Apostles declares that Jesus is God John 1:18 No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, He has explained Him.

  18. John the Baptist implies that Jesus is God John 1:15 John testified about Him and cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, 'He who comes after me has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.'"

  19. It would be enough to simply be the Creator, but the amazing, and for some people, unbelievable, is that the Creator would come to live with us.

  20. The Creator entered the World to save the World he had created • God became a man John 1:14 And the Word became flesh

  21. The Creator entered the World to save the World he had created • God became a man • God set up camp among us John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us.

  22. The Creator entered the World to save the World he had created John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us and we saw His glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth. • God became a man • God set up camp among us • The disciples testify to his glory (light)

  23. God sent John the Baptist to prepare the world for the light. • John 1:6 There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. (7) He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. (8) He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light.

  24. Jesus - the Word and Light - of the world made his presence known to the world. • He is the light of all people. John 1:9 There was the true Light which, coming into the world, enlightens every man.

  25. Jesus - the Word and Light - of the world made his presence known to the world. • He is the light of all people. • He was in the world, created it, but the world (people of the world) didn’t know who he was, John 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.

  26. Jesus - the Word and Light - of the world made his presence known to the world. • He is the light of all people. • He was in the world, created it, but the world (people of the world) didn’t know who he was, • He came to Israel (his own people), But they didn’t receive him (they rejected him). John 1:11 He came to His own, and those who were His own did not receive Him

  27. The World He created didn’t recognize Him. His own family rejected him with the rest of the world.

  28. So, the creator began a new family

  29. All the people that received (take hold of, believe in) him (whether Jew or non Jew), Jesus gave them the privilege to be Children of God. John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,

  30. All the people that received (take hold of, believe in) him (whether Jew or non Jew), Jesus gave them the privilege to be Children of God. • We don’t become children through physical birth (by bloods) – human parents, heritage, or circumcision. John 1:13a who were born, not of blood

  31. All the people that received (take hold of, believe in) him (whether Jew or non Jew), Jesus gave them the privilege to be Children of God. • We don’t become children through physical birth (by bloods) – human parents, heritage, or circumcision. • We don’t become children from an act of the human will • Will of the flesh – sexual desire, or doing works of Law John 1:13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh

  32. All the people that received (take hold of, believe in) him (whether Jew or non Jew), Jesus gave them the privilege to be Children of God. • We don’t become children through physical birth (by bloods) – human parents, heritage, or circumcision. • We don’t become children from an act of the human will • Will of the flesh – sexual desire, or doing works of Law • Will of man (or husband). John 1:13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man,

  33. If we don’t become children of God by being born into the right family, or by keeping God’s rules, or by acts of the our will, how do we become children of God?

  34. It is of God. John 1:13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

  35. So So then, How Do I become a child of God?

  36. To become one of the Children of God we must be obedient to God and receive – believe – in His Son. As many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, even to those who believe in His name,

  37. The creator pitched his tent among us • The world did not know him • His own people did not receive him • The world nailed him to a cross. • Everyone that does receive him, Jew and Gentile, He has given the privilege to be children of God.

  38. There once was an old man…

  39. “Father, forgive them for they know not what they have done” Will you receive Him? Accept His forgiveness, Today?
