John begins his gospel by making a profound claim: Jesus is God and He is the Creator. The reader is supposed to be taken aback by this. John is saying in effect: “The One I am about to introduce to you is no mere man, He is God. And He knows you intimately because He created you.” And with claims as grandiose as these, we must expect to see John support them throughout his gospel. And he will! | John 1:1-3
