THE WORD OF LIFE
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. 2 The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. – 1 John 1:1&2
John had direct fellowship with Jesus; that is his testimony. Though we have not seen Him nor heard Him nor touched the hem of His cloak, John has. And if we believe in the truth of the Bible, we can see and hear and touch Jesus through John, whose first epistle is one to read over and over again to get a true sense of who Jesus is.
