Summary: An amazing explanation of who Jesus really is.

PUZZLE PIECES - Pretend each Puzzle piece represents a different part of your life.

1) Business – where work – what you do. Occupation - Big one – Probably 50 hrs of your week is dedicated to this piece(working driving…etc)

168 hrs in a week. most will spend about 50 hrs sleeping – some more some less

{In two things 100 hrs of your 168 is GONE -

That leaves about 68hrs left to do everything else. What else ?

YOUR family – it is also a big one because our families need us to spend time with them.

social life – your friends – friends are important

Recreation – it doesn’t always fit that well. – Hard to make time for that.

YOUR TIME – TV - read the paper – even – smaller – most of us Know – In this life not much time for you time.

LIKE OUTSIDE OF A DONUT: Giant HOLE in the Middle - Why the hole

What is missing from this picture is JESUS

1 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.

5 The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

WHO JESUS IS: 1 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.

1. JESUS IS ETERNAL: In the beginning was the Word

Before there was time / before the earth was created – There was The Word.

The Jewish teachers made it Personal – behind every Perfect thought there is a Perfect Thinker - That is the Logos

John identifies the Logos as Jesus – In the beginning was the Word. He is eternal

Revelation 1:8 "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End," says the Lord, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."

2. Jesus is Distinct: the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God.

He was with The Father in the Beginning

Jesus is God. “And the Word was God – God was in the Word.”

• WITH – lit means ‘face to face’ Face to face with God

Together from Eternity – Two persons – yet one:

1) Equal in essence, nature, power and substance.

2) their glory equal, their majesty equal co-eternal, and yet their Godhead one. This is a great mystery!

WHAT JESUS HAS DONE: 3 All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.

1. JESUS IS THE CREATOR:

Creator of Time / space & everything that was made.

Creation is God’s first missionary !

Psalm 19:1-2 The heavens tell of the glory of God. The skies display his marvelous craftsmanship. Day after day they continue to speak; night after night they make him known.

Abraham Lincoln was once quoted as saying “I can see how it might be possible for a man to look down at man on the earth & be an Atheist - seeing man But I can not conceive how a man can look up into the heavens & declare there is no God!”

Earth from an outer space perspective.

The diameter of the Earth around the equator is 7,926.6 miles.

The earth’s circumference is about 25,000 miles.

It weighs an estimated 6,000 million, million, million tons.

And it just hangs there in mid air. Not held up by anything visible to

The earth is spinning 1,000 miles an hour on our axis.

And as it does, it travels through space at 19 miles per second.

66,600 miles per hour.

1,000 times faster than what most of us travel driving down the freeway – Most of you!

At 66,600 miles per hour, the earth flies between 500 & 600 million miles every year

Earth is Huge but not in comparison to the Sun

The Sun’s diameter is 866,000 miles in diameter from one side to the other side, with a circumference of 2,720,106 miles.

So big that 1,300,000 of our earths could fit inside.

But compared to Antares, a star our sun is SMALL

64 of our suns could fit inside of it.

But Antares is a relatively small star in comparison to Hercules

110 million Antares could fit inside the star Hercules.

Betelgeuse and other stars but the numbers get so big it begins to blow the mind.

But all spoken into existence by THE WORD / LOGOS – Jesus Christ – God the Son.
