Talking about the gospel in the new Testament. The gospel of John been written and the different between Matthew, Mark and John.

And there are distinctive which referred to:

- The healing of the noble man son.
- Turning of water into wine.
- The Samaritan woman.
- The man born blind.
- The risen of Lazarus.
- Jesus Christ rise from the death.

The discus, message and sermon we see in this very verse and that make it distinct. Is the gospel we need to believe in and the major of the gospels tells us to "believe" for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him, shall not perish but have eternal life".

He wants us to believe, it is written that we might believe in verse 10; He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not". He mention the word LOVE - 45times. God loves you, he love the world, He mention the light 75times - They are wonderful, Because the Led gave them to us, and it tells us who he is. Because He is higher and higher than any prophet.

I AM THE WAY, THE TRUE AND THE LIFE - No man in any other way EXCEPT Jesus Christ. He was the same, and he want you to have the way. The only way to known the father is through salvation, conversion and you believe in the father.

I AM THE TRUE VINE - John 17:1; “I am the true vine, and my Father is the gardener. He cuts off every branch in me that bears no fruit, while every branch that does bear fruit he prunes so that it will be even more fruitful.” (John 15:1-2).

“I am the true vine … I am the vine; you are the
branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing. If you do not remain in me, you are like a branch that is thrown away and withers; such branches are picked up, thrown into the fire and burned.” (John 15:1, 5-6).

There are three different vines found in Scripture. Past, future and present.
The reason John writing this books? John selected this for a purpose (That ye might have life).

1. The Pre - Existence Of The World: The Eternal Christ.
John 2:2; John 17:5; Proverbs 8:23; Isaiah 9:6

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God". Christ was already in existence, Christ already there in the beginning of the creation.

He exists before them. Christ has glory and he has the power - Proverbs 30:4 “Who hath ascended up into heaven, who hath gathered the wind in his firsts? who hath bound the waters in a garment? Who hath established all the ends of the earth? what is his name, and what is his son's name, if thou canst tell?”.

 Christ ensuring us, (was sent forth from heaven for everlasting). Now, you will understand when God say, let make man in his own image. We refers to him as CHRIST ETERNAL.

The word refers to Jesus - John 5:7
-The Father.
-The World
-The Holy ghost.

And the three are one. Telling us Jesus Christ is one. In Isaiah 9:6 " For unto us a child is born, and unto us a Son is given, and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor. The Mighty God. The everlasting Father.

The Prince of Peace.

Many people don't understand what Jesus Christ can do, and the prominent of Christ, the power and the wondrous work of Christ. The one who died for us on the cross of Calvary. For all things made by him "All things were made by him" He wants to reaffirmed, to see what he has created in Genesis 1:6.

Remember, in the beginning was the word Jesus Christ talking referred to as bread of life!

He is creator, He is the originator "By who are all things, and we by him''.

In Colossians 1:26. Talking about Jesus holy, Mighty and powerful. Talking about Christ, he enlightened us, created us, making us his creature, all things were created for him by him.

He was the father from all eternal and till now. All you need to is to surrender everything to him.

In Colossians 1:10; "That they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory".

In the beginning of the World he spoke the Word and the Word come into existence. In the book of Revelation 4:11- Talking about Jesus, Creation and Purpose of His Creation.
