Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read John 1:1-5. Believers for centuries have noted the parallels between this prologue and Genesis 1. Why does John mirror the creation account?
  2. What do we learn about “the Word”? Why is this significant?
  3. What does the Word do or accomplish?
  4. What do the words “life” and “light” signify? Compare with John 5:24-26, 8:12, 14:6, & 17:2-3.
  5. Explain how v. 4b, “the life was the light of men,” states the mission of Christ? The mission of the Church? 

Memory Verse of the Week:
