Conversation.

Another interpretation I have heard used for the first chapter of the Gospel of St. John is using ‘conversation’ instead of the ‘Logos’ or ‘Word’.

This interpretation doesn’t give a complete translations but makes you think.

In the beginning was the Conversation, and the Conversation was with God, and the Conversation was God. The Conversation was with God in the beginning.

The Conversation became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

When we pray, we indeed become part of that conversation.

Word.

Jesus simple placed by St. John as the ‘Word’.

Such diversity of translation and meaning that has been debated through the years.

In Genesis we imagine the words of creation and see Jesus as being there with the Father.

John pictured that image too. That word contained the power of newness that begins and continues life.

And are not we a part of that creativity?

Continued showings of Jesus before the Lenten themed ‘Thourghts’ next week.

John 1:1-5, 9-14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
