1 John 1:2 the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us
The Word of Life became flesh. The heart and ministry of God was on full display. Eternal life from the Father is the message. I can spend a long time thinking about that which the Father sought to say, but none would grasp it. He came to give life to a world of people He loves. I was on this pathway to hell, due to my sin, and Jesus' obedience to the Fathers will brought me eternal life through His powerful Holy Spirit.
