Reflective Sermon

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God (1:1). And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory… (1:14).

What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we beheld and our hands handled, concerning the Word of Life (1:1)

…ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be made full (16:24).

…these things we write, so that our joy may be made complete (1:4).

The Gospel and the Epistle

Gospel of John

1st Epistle of John

For everyone who does evil hates the light, and does not come to the light, lest his deeds should be exposed. 21 "But he who practices the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God (3:20-21)

If we say that we have fellowship with Him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth; 7 but if we walk in the light as He Himself is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin (1:6-7).

Gospel of John

1st Epistle of John

He who hears My word, and believes Him who sent Me, has eternal life, and does not come into judgment, but has passed out of death into life (5:24).

We know that we have passed out of death into life, because we love the brethren (3:14).

He who is of God hears the words of God; for this reason you do not hear them, because you are not of God (5:47).

We are from God; he who knows God listens to us; he who is not from God does not listen to us… (4:6).

He who believes in the Son has eternal life; but he who does not obey the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him (3:36).

The Rise of Gnosticism
  • From the Greek word gnosis (“knowledge”).
  • It would arise in the 2nd century, but its seeds were already evident.
  • The physical is bad; the spirit is good.
  • Views of Jesus.
    • Docetism: Christ only seemed to be human.
    • Cerenthianism: The Divine Christ entered Jesus at His baptism and departed prior to His death.
  • Salvation through knowledge.
