Anthony Gammage – John 1:14-18
 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.  (John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’”)  For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.  For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.  No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.
 Then the cloud covered the tent of meeting, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
 “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
 But he, full of the Holy Spirit, gazed into heaven and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing at the right hand of God.  And he said, “Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of God.”  But they cried out with a loud voice and stopped their ears and rushed together at him.
 The LORD passed before him and proclaimed, “The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness,  keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children’s children, to the third and the fourth generation.”
John 14:6 
Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
“A heart does not become genocidal overnight. It does, however, leave evidence on its trail…Genocide begins when people malign their brothers and sisters more easily today than yesterday.”
