The story of Jesus started long before that famous first Christmas. Jesus was actually there when nothing else existed.
In today’s lesson, we’re going to learn another name Jesus was called that maybe you’ve never heard him called before. It comes from our memory verse which refers to Jesus as the Word. Hmmm, that seems weird. Who would ever name their kid Word? Jesus is referred to the Word because he completely represents everything about God, and his truth, because he is God! I know that might sound confusing. How can God be God and Jesus be God. Well, like many things, we aren’t like God at all so we have a hard time understanding how he works. But the Bible clearly teaches that Jesus was there at the very beginning when all of creation was formed. And the Bible also says that Jesus is God. That’s why he was able to walk this earth and live a perfect life. That’s why Jesus was able to die to pay for our sins – because he is God! So, when you think about Jesus, remember that he existed long before that first Christmas when he came to earth as a baby. And picture him as the walking, talking version of the Bible because He is the Word!
