Jesus as a Reincarnation of Adam


Judaism, Christianity and Islam all accept the account of Adam and Eve as part of their religion. The Bible gave the distinct title of "Son of God" to only three personalities in the entire Bible: Adam, Melchizedek, and Jesus. So, it should not be surprising that these three personalities have a connection that goes well beyond coincidence. This connection is proof that these personalities were indeed the same soul appearing in different incarnations. This shows that the Bible is the story of the sojourn of the "Son of God" beginning with Paradise lost and ending with Paradise restored. The following information describes just the Adam-Jesus connection.

Identical Title: "Son of Man"

The Hebrew word for "Adam" is "man". The title "Son of Man" is a reference to Adam. The phrases "Son of Man" and "Son of Adam" are inter-changeable.

Jesus referred to himself using the phrase "Adam Kadmon" [Son of Man] to refer to the heavenly apocalyptic figure who is to come. Paul used the phrase "Adam Kadmon" as the archetypal man created in God's image who was the first and perfect representative of humanity who would return at the end of time and restore all things.

(1) God's judgment upon Adam resulted in his reincarnation:
"For dust you are and to dust you will return." (Gen. 3:19)

Talmudists interpret this verse this way: Because Adam sinned it was necessary for him to reincarnate to make good the evil committed in his first existence; so he comes as David, and later is to come as Messiah.

(2) The Bible mentions David reincarnating for the people:

"Instead, they will serve the Lord their God and David their king, whom I will raise up for them." (Jer. 30:9)

In the traditions of the Talmudists, the soul of Adam reincarnated in David, and that on account of the sin of David against Uriah it will have to come again in the expected Messiah.

Out of the three letters ADM (the name of the first man) the Talmudists always made the names Adam, David and Messiah.

Identical Title: "Son of God"
Adam: "the son of Seth, the son of Adam, the son of God." (Luke 3:38)
Jesus: "I believe that you are the Christ, the son of God." (John 11:27)

As previously mentioned, the Bible gives the distinct title of "Son of God" to only three personalities in the entire Bible: Adam, Melchizedek, and Jesus.

(1) God declares the "sons of God" to be divine:
"I said, 'You are "gods"; you are all sons of the Most High.' (Psalm 82:6)

(2) Jesus declares himself the "Son of God":

"Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your Law, 'I have said you are gods'? If he called them 'gods,' ... what about the one whom the Father set apart as his very own and sent into the world? Why then do you accuse me of blasphemy because I said, 'I am God's Son'?" (John 10:30-36)

Identical Birth Order: First Born

Adam: "The Lord God formed the man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being." (Gen. 2:7)

Jesus: "Who is the image of the invisible God, the first-born of every creature" (Col. 1:14-15)

Adam ("ben elohim") is translated as "Son of God". This means Adam is first born to God.

Identical Rule: Ruler of God's Creation

Adam: "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the Earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish of the sea and the birds of the air and over every living creature that moves on the ground." (Gen. 1:28)

Jesus: "These are the words of the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the ruler of God's creation." (Rev. 3:14)

Identical Parent: Father of the Human Race

Adam: "God blessed them and said to them, "Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the Earth and subdue it." (Gen. 1:28)

Adam: "Your first father sinned; your spokesmen rebelled against me." (Isaiah 43:27)
Jesus: "I and the Father are one." (John 10:30-33)

Jesus: "He will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6)

Identical Essence: Human-Divine Unity

Adam: "Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness." (Gen. 1:26)
Jesus: "All the fullness of deity in bodily form." (Col. 2:9)

(1) Adam "the first man" and Jesus "the second man."

"The first man was of the dust of the Earth, the second man from heaven. As was the earthly man, so are those who are of the Earth; and as is the man from heaven, so also are those who are of heaven. And just as we have borne the likeness of the earthly man, so shall we bear the likeness of the man from heaven." (1 Cor 15:47-49)

Identical Pattern: Image and Copy
Adam: "who was a pattern of the coming one [Christ]" (Rom. 5:14)

The Greek translation of the word "pattern" is "tupos" which is defined as: An impression made by a stamp, an exact image, an exact model, a copy, a type, an example. In context, the phrase "who is a pattern of the coming one" ("ejstin tuvpo tou' mevllonto hos estin tupos tou mellontos") refers to Adam as a copy of Christ.

Identical Positions: "First and Last"

The first and last Adam: "The first Adam [Adam] became a living being; the last Adam [Jesus], a life-giving spirit." (1 Cor 15:45)
Jesus: "I am the First and the Last." (Rev. 1:17)
God: "I am the First and I am the Last." (Isaiah 48:12)

The Bible refers to Jesus as "the First of God's creation" (human-divine being) and "the Last of God's creation" (human-divine being).

The Son of God's "first incarnation" was as Adam. The Son of God's "last incarnation" was as Jesus.

Identical Mortality: Immortal from the Beginning

Adam: "You must not eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die." (Gen 2:15-17)
Jesus: "He was with God in the beginning." (John 1:1-2)

Jesus: "And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6)

Identical Origins: "Beginning and End"

Adam: "But at the beginning of creation God 'made them male and female.'" (Mark 10:6)
Jesus: "I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End." (Rev. 21:6)

Identical Title: Logos

(1) Adam is the "Logos".

The term "Bar Nasha" or "Son of Man" refers to the "divine human form," the "Logos," the eternal "image of God." (source: John Rossner, In Search of the Primordial Tradition and the Cosmic Christ, p.189)

(2) Jesus is the "Logos".

"In the beginning was the Word [Logos], and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning." (John 1:1-2)

Identical Nature: Image of God

Adam: "Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, in our likeness." (Gen. 1:26)
Jesus: "..the glory of Christ, who is the image of God." (2 Cor. 4:4)

Identical Sacrificial Result: First and Last Sacrifice

(1) The first sacrifice was for physical needs:

Adam: "The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them." (Gen. 3:21)

(2) The last sacrifice was for spiritual needs:

Jesus: "He sacrificed for their sins once for all when he offered himself." (Heb. 7:27-28)

Identical Association: Tree of Life

(1) In the beginning, Adam with the Tree of Life:

"In the middle of the garden were the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil." (Gen. 2:9)

(2) Adam's transgression banished people from the Tree of Life:

"So the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. After he drove the man out, he placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden cherubim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of life." (Gen. 3:22-24)

(3) Jesus' action restored people to the Tree of Life:

"To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God." (Rev. 2:7)

"Then the angel showed me the river of the water of life, as clear as crystal, flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb down the middle of the great street of the city. On each side of the river stood the tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, yielding its fruit every month. And the leaves of the tree are for the healing of the nations. No longer will there be any curse. The throne of God and of the Lamb will be in the city, and his servants will serve him." (Rev. 22:1-3)

Identical in Near-Death Experiences: "Being of Light"

(1) Adam appears to people after death:

"So it is that when a man is about to depart from life, Adam, the first man, appears to him and asks him why and in what state he leaves the world.
He says: "Woe to you that through you I have to die."

To which Adam replies: "My son, I transgressed one commandment and was punished for so doing; see how many commandments of your Master, negative and positive, you have transgressed." (Jewish Kabbalistic book Zohar I, 57b)

(2) The Messiah appears to people after death:
Rene Turner, a Jewish woman, met the Messiah during her death experience.

(3) Jesus appears to people after death:

Jeanie Dicus, a Jewish woman, met Jesus during her death experience and Jesus asked her if she wanted to reincarnate.

Identical Karma: Required to Pay for Original Sin

The connection between Jesus and Adam is fundamental to Christian doctrine. Their connection is the foundation that holds together the entire Christian system of election, redemption, atonement, justification, regeneration and sanctification. The idea of Jesus "paying the penalty" for the transgressions of others makes no sense without his connection to Adam's mission of bringing in higher knowledge and its consequences. Without Adam as a previous incarnation as Jesus, the gospel message is absurd.

Adam brought divine knowledge of good and evil into the world which resulted in both positive and negative consequences. Jesus came to reverse the negative consequences brought on by Adam by paying his karmic debt. This becomes apparent when we read how the Bible draws parallels between Adam and Christ:

(1) The obedience of Jesus reversed the disobedience of Adam:

"For just as through the disobedience of the one man [Adam] the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man [Jesus] the many will be made righteous." (Rom. 5:12-21)

These verses describe the work of Adam being undone by the work of Jesus. This is an excellent example of how divine justice is meted out in the Bible and in Eastern religions. The only person who can satisfy divine justice by reversing the work of Adam would have to be Adam himself or an incarnation of Adam. Because Paul states that Jesus was the only one who can satisfy divine justice by paying the karmic debt of Adam indicates that it is possible that Adam was indeed an incarnation of Jesus.

(2) After Satan caused Adam and Eve to sin, God passed judgment upon them. In doing so, God reveals a remarkable prophecy: Redemption will come through Eve - through the birth of a son.
"Then the Lord God said to the woman, "What is this you have done?"
The woman said, "The serpent deceived me, and I ate."

So the Lord God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, "Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life.

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." (Gen 3:13-15)

This Bible verse is so remarkable that I want to break it down to analyze it because it not only supports the idea that Jesus was the reincarnation of Adam, but that the Virgin Mary was the reincarnation of Eve. In passing judgment, God stated that he will do the following:
(1) Put enmity between Satan and Eve.

(2) Put enmity between Satan's offspring (i.e., evil humans) and "Eve's offspring" (i.e., the Messiah)
(3) The Messiah will crush Satan's head.
(4) But Satan will strike the Messiah's heel.

Let's examine each one separately:

(1) Put enmity between Satan and Eve.

"And I will put enmity between you (i.e., the serpent) and the woman," (Gen. 3:15)

"When the dragon saw that he had been hurled to the Earth, he pursued the woman who had given birth to the male child." (Rev. 12:17)

(2) Put enmity between Satan's offspring (i.e., evil humans) and "Eve's offspring" (i.e., the Messiah)

"And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers. (Gen. 3:15)

Jesus responded to those who wanted to kill him: "You belong to your father the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies." (John 8:44-45)

"This is how we know who the children of God are and who the children of the devil are: Anyone who does not do what is right is not a child of God; nor is anyone who does not love his brother." (1 John 3:10)

(3) The Messiah will crush Satan's head.

"And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head," (Gen. 3:15)
"The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet." (Rom. 16:20)

"And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace." (Isaiah 9:6)

(4) But Satan will strike the Messiah's heel.

"And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel." (Gen. 3:15-17)

"Then Satan entered Judas, called Iscariot, one of the Twelve. And Judas went to the chief priests and the officers of the temple guard and discussed with them how he might betray Jesus." (Luke 22:3-4)
"They have pierced my hands and my feet." (Psalm 22:16)

Identical Burial Place: Golgotha

According to the Catholic Encyclopedia:

There was a tradition current among the Jews that the skull of Adam, after having been confided by Noah to his son Shem, and by the latter to Melchizedek, was finally deposited at the place called, for that reason, Golgotha. The Talmudists and the Fathers of the Church were aware of this tradition, and it survives in the skulls and bones placed at the foot of the crucifix. The Evangelists are not opposed to it, inasmuch as they speak of one and not of many skulls. (Luke, Mark, John, loc. cit.) Calvary is 140 feet south-east of the Holy Sepulchre and 13 feet above it. The early traditions mentioned at the beginning of this article still cling to it. The chapel of Adam beneath that of Calvary stands for the first. A picture in it represents the raising of Adam to life by the Precious Blood trickling down upon his skull. An altar is there dedicated to Melchizedek.

The Eve / Virgin Mary Connection

Genesis 3:13-15 is the first Messianic prophecy mentioned in the Bible and is a reference to an offspring of Eve who will be the Messiah and who will pay for the transgressions of Adam and Eve. What is interesting is that this verse refers to the Messiah as the "offspring" of Eve. While it is true that every human being can be considered to be an "offspring" of Eve, this verse makes better sense when interpreted to mean an offspring born directly from Eve's own womb. This means Eve would have had to reincarnate in order to give birth to the Messiah. The woman who gave birth to Jesus was, of course, the Virgin Mary. Traditionally, the Catholic Church has believed that Mary was not only a virgin when she bore Jesus, but that she herself was born without sin. Thus, a mystical tradition has existed concerning Mary which lasts even to this day.

But what makes this Eve/Mary connection important is how it best explains, in a logical manner, the cosmic reasons for Jesus' sacrifice and death, and how it satisfied divine justice. The ancient concept of divine justice can be summed up beautifully in the Bible as "an eye for an eye." This concept of divine justice was not limited to just the early Hebrews because it is a concept that is practically universal. The more ancient religions of the East referred to the concept of "an eye for an eye" as "karma." It demands that transgressors pay for their own transgressions. No one else can pay for your own transgressions but you. Thus, because it was Adam and Eve who transgressed, it would have to be Adam and Eve themselves who paid. God's judgment upon them was that Eve would have to bear a son who would suffer as a consequence for their transgression. The only real and logical way this could be done would be through reincarnation. Eve would have to reincarnate to bear a son - the reincarnation of Adam. His tremendous suffering at the cross (and the suffering it would cause herself) would satisfy divine justice and pay for the transgression committed in Eden.

When we consider the orthodox view (i.e., that Jesus and Mary were not the reincarnations of Adam and Eve) it makes much less sense when we talk about the so-called substitutionary sacrificial nature of Christ's death. The big question is this: How can divine justice be satisfied when an innocent person suffers and pays for the transgressions of someone else? Without reincarnation, it makes complete nonsense. It only makes sense if the innocent person was a reincarnation of the guilty person paying for their transgressions.

Edgar Cayce's Revelation of Jesus

Edgar Cayce revealed the many incarnations of Jesus to be: Adam, Enoch, Melchizedek, Joseph (the prince of Egypt), Joshua, Jeshua (the scribe chiefly responsible for forming the Hebrew Bible according to Cayce) and finally Jesus. Many other characters from the Old Testament were also incarnations of Jesus, to the extent that the entire Christian Bible becomes part of the story of his long struggle to attain Christhood.

What is interesting in the above verse from the Zohar is that Adam appears to the dying person at death. This was the belief held by Kabbalistic Jews. Assuming that the concept held by many early Christians that Adam was a previous incarnation of Jesus, this agrees with many near-death accounts where people are met by Jesus after death.

The belief in many incarnations of Jesus is not a new belief. The early Christian group known as the Ebionites taught that the Holy Spirit had first incarnated as Adam and later reincarnated as Jesus. Other Jewish Christian groups such as the Elkasaites and Nazarites also held this belief. The Samaritans believed that Adam had reincarnated as Seth, then Noah, Abraham, and even Moses. The Clementine Homilies, an early Christian document, also taught many incarnations of Jesus.

Cayce affirmed that Adam was the first human being who, through evolution, attained the unity of the human and divine.

The Cayce material, however, goes on to speak of the singular appropriateness of Adam finally emerging as Jesus, the man, to become the savior of the world, the Christ. It must also be noted that sin did not begin with Adam according to Cayce, but it had its origins in spiritual realms before even the creation of the Earth. We can therefore assume that this was Adam's redemptive intent all along - to be savior of the world.

Christ is thus seen as the last Adam, the "one man" who by his obedience undoes the results of the disobedience of the first (Rom. 5:12-21). Jesus recapitulated the stages of Adam's fall, but in reverse order and quality. It is understandable how shocking this statement of Cayce's is to most fundamental Christians, that Jesus whom they have always believed to be sinless had been not only guilty of sin, but the very person who has been traditionally regarded as the author of sin on the human level. However, Cayce in no way states that Jesus as the Christ was guilty of any sin of any kind. At that stage of his personal and cosmic development his obedience was flawless, his relationship with God perfect. In Cayce's words:

"... the perfect relationship to the Creative Forces or God, the Father - which the human Jesus attained when he gave of himself to the world, that through him, by and in him, each entity might come to know the true relationship with the Father."

Cayce also affirmed that Jesus would reincarnate again in the year 1998.

Edgar Cayce's Revelation of the Virgin Mary

According to Cayce, not only was Jesus and Adam the same soul in different incarnations, but the Virgin Mary and Eve were also the same soul in different incarnations. Cayce also revealed that Adam and Eve (and therefore Jesus and Mary) were "twin souls". When Cayce used this term in the readings, he was not referring to "soul mates" which is a different concept. Basically, a soul mate is a soul - or a group of souls - who have shared so many lifetimes that they resonate to the same pitch or vibration, so to speak. Soul mates understand each other like no one else can. This acquired understanding gives soul mates the ability to help each other in ways that would be difficult without the deep bonding that has occurred through the multitude of incarnations together.

Twin souls, on the other hand, are two souls who share a common purpose or higher ideal. They do not necessarily have to be married or have had previous marriage incarnations. While the "soul mate" relationship is largely built in the physical realm, the "twin soul" relationship evolves more from a commonality in the spirit realms - at the idea or ideal level. It is in this sense that the Adam/Eve and Jesus/Mary relationship is considered by Cayce to be a "twin soul" relationship.

The Cayce readings state that Mary, Joseph, and Jesus were affiliated with an Essene community based on Mount Carmel. It was a continuation of the "school of the prophets" begun by Elijah, Elisha, Samuel, and ultimately Melchizedek. Although the Essenes are not mentioned in the Bible, what Cayce's generation would have known about them came only from the writings of Josephus, Philo, and Pliny the Elder. Because the Dead Sea Scrolls were not discovered until 1947, Cayce could not have been influenced by them because he died in 1945. But much of what Cayce revealed about the Essenes was later verified by the Dead Sea Scrolls.

According to the Cayce material, the Essenes were a religious community consisting of both Jews and Gentiles, men and women, whose purpose was to prepare for the coming of the Messiah. The word "Essene," according to Cayce, means "expectancy." Josephus wrote that the Essenes were known for fortune-telling. Cayce described them spending their time recording experiences of "the supernatural or out of the ordinary experiences; whether in dreams, visions, voices, or what not" (1472-1). Cayce revealed the Essenes as students of astrology, numerology, and reincarnation.

The Dead Sea Scrolls describe the Essenes as an authoritarian, highly regimented community which controlled every aspect of its members' lives. The Manual of Discipline specifies that members were to turn over all money and property to the community after a year's probation. Qumran was located at about a four-hour walk from Jericho, most likely from a desire to be separated from the world. Their theology stressed a good versus evil dualism. Their writings describe a conflict between a "Teacher of Righteousness" and the "Wicked Priest" which some scholars believe refers to the struggle among early Christians between James and Paul. The Essenes anticipated a final war between the "sons of light" and the "sons of darkness." The scholars agree that there are many interesting similarities between Jesus and the Qumran community. Other similarities can be found in the life and ministry of John the Baptist.

Cayce revealed that, due to her great virtue, Mary was chosen by the Essenes at around the age of thirteen for intensive spiritual training in preparation for the conception of the Messiah. Mary's election as mother of the Messiah occurred during a special ceremony in the temple at Mount Carmel, in which an angel lead her by the hand to the altar. Remarkably, this agrees with early Christian writings discovered in Egypt after Cayce's death:

In the Infancy Gospel of James, Mary is presented to the Lord at the age of three when her father Joachim "set her on the third step of the altar, and the Lord God gave grace to her ... and she received food from the hand of an angel." Cayce and the Infancy Gospel of James agree that Joseph was chosen to be Mary's husband by lot. They also agree that Joseph was much older than Mary. Cayce revealed their ages at the time of their marriage as thirty-six and sixteen, respectively. Meanwhile, the Infancy Gospel of James states that Joseph was a widower, and although different versions disagree as to Mary's age, the most common figure is sixteen. Cayce and the Infancy Gospel of James agree that Jesus was born in a cave. Cayce also revealed that the Essenes admitted women which agrees with the writings of Josephus.

More about the Cayce revelations concerning the Essenes can be found at the Jesus Story website.

Jesus is not Adam recincarnated, but GOD INCARNATE

May 13 2011, 11:52 AM 

he comes through one of Adam's sons called David in the flesh and we all have to reach this LEVEL OF FLESH called DAVID (Beloved) to understand this and experience this event within us:


it is DAVID who is Adam reincarnated till he is able to BIRTH Messiah,

this is why it is written that Jesus CHRIST is the "ROOT" of David (CHRIST) is revealed in David as the root of life, and Jesus is the offspring, meaning the NEW MAN that comes from that ROOT:



'
understanding the difference between a son and a 'begotten' son of God:


Adam was a son of God because he received the "Spirit or neshama" the breath of God within him.



This made Adam a son of God:


but the sons of God became prodigal sons, they left their "first estate" and desired 'strange flesh':



as is written to Jude (Judah) in the Net Testament:

here the writer is REMINDING them of something they already KNEW once upon a time but they forgot it: this is also why it is written to Ephesus, the first Church of the seven that they don't remember their "FIRST LOVE" which is the FATHER OF SPIRITS:



Jud 1:5 I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.


Jud 1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.


Jud 1:7 Even as Sodom and Gomorrha, and the cities about them in like manner, giving themselves over to fornication, and going after strange flesh, are set forth for an example, suffering the vengeance of eternal fire.


Jud 1:8 Likewise also these [filthy] dreamers defile the flesh, despise dominion, and speak evil of dignities.


Jud 1:9 Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The Lord rebuke thee.


Jud 1:10 But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves.


it is these sons that Jesus came to save: These sons are the 'spirits within mankind', hence Legion reminds us that there are "many such evil spirits' that rule mankind now:



these need a SECOND BIRTH, which is why it says that JESUS CHRIST GIVES THE "SONS OF GOD" a second birth or brings MANY SONS to glory; through Jesus Christ (GOD IN THEM) they are "BEGOTTEN" again.....born again to be JOINED to their father of spirts and LIVE


Jesus is not Adam reincarnated but he saves the "sons of Adam" and gives them a second birth because Jesus is GOD INCARNATED into Man to take the place of the "FIRST MAN"



this is a simple statement that people either accept with gratitude or they stumble over it because they don't LIKE THE IDEA OF GOD SAVING THEM......

why? They want to be separate FROM GOD.....



they want their own wills and lives.......

simple enough!!!!!

1Jo 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ ((is born of God)): and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.


Jhn 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his (((only begotten Son)))), that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.


Jhn 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.






Jhn 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, [but] grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.


Jhn 1:18 No man hath seen God at any time; the (((only begotten Son)))), which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared [him].



returning to earlier verses:



Jhn 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.


Jhn 1:15 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.


Jhn 1:16 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.


Jhn 1:17 For the law was given by Moses, [but] grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
