In this final section of his magnificent prologue, John reaches the goal of his Gospel. Having already declared that The Word – eternal, distinct, divine, creator and light of life – entered into human existence as the full expression of the glory of God, he now reaches the fullest consequence of the Incarnation: The fullest revelation of God that can be known this side of heaven can now be experienced through Jesus Christ.
“For from His fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, He has made Him known.”
