There is information that we learn that moves us to trust or distrust someone. As we begin this new series in the book of John, the writer John starts his book off by working to convince the unconvinced that Jesus is in fact God. In this first teaching, we learn that John starts his narrative the same way Moses started the Torah. And for the same reason – to demonstrate that God is the source and sustainer of life and that He intends to get rid of the darkness in our lives. If He isn’t God, there is no compelling reason to follow him any more than any other good or religious person. But if He is God, then He is worth rearranging our entire lives around.
