The opening verses of the Gospel of John don’t paint the familiar scene of a Bethlehem stable. No sweet soft-focus candlelight for John. In sweeping, bold strokes he flashes creation and new creation on the canvas of our minds. Brooding darkness gives way to brilliant light. Old death gives way to new life. The great motifs of incarnation, rejection, and redemption glint on the eye in this brief but intense masterpiece. Eighteen verses of raucous energy – John’s Christmas story.
