Thoughts on the first Sunday of Advent

The John’s prologue is as follows.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. … It was in the world, and the world was made through him; and the world did not recognize it. He came to his own and his own received him not. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God: those who believe in His name ….
The Greek term for “word” is logos. Logos has a broad meaning palette, but in Christianity identified with Jesus. One can therefore read the text above over again to understand what John wants to express it, by instead of “word” always “Jesus” begins:
In the beginning of everything Jesus and Jesus was with God and God was Jesus. Jesus was in the world and the world was made through Jesus, and the world knew him not. Jesus came into the world created by him and the people he created did not accept him. But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God: those who believe in His name …
During Advent, which is named after the Latin adventus, Arrival, you prepare internally in memory of the Incarnation 2000 years ago on Christmas in front when God showed in a man to man. In Jesus. Christmas is the highlight of this expectation, there man is born with the name of Jesus, in which the divine, Jesus shows.
