Quotes to Consider:

John Calvin: "And since they all [i.e., all four canonical Gospels] had the same object, to show Christ, the first three exhibit His body, if I may be permitted to put it like that, but John shows His soul."

R. C. H. Lenski on John 1:1b: "The idea is that of presence and communion with a strong note of reciprocity. The Logos, then, is not an attribute inhering in God, or a power emanating from him, but a person in the presence of God and turned in loving, inseparable communion toward God, and God turned equally toward him."

Announcements (subject to God’s will)
