"Jesus" The ONLY God man has EVER known.

"And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth" (John 1:14).

Jesus walked the earth a little over 2,000 years ago. In the first chapter of St. John it is said that Jesus (the word) was also in the beginning with God. It also says that the Word (Jesus) created EVERYTHING that was made. That would include Adam and Eve. For some reason people still confuse the fact that the Father DID NOT create Anything. This confusion is understandable because over 2,000 yrs ago, the religous leaders, including the Pharisees (who knew the scriptures very well) were also unbeliveing that Jesus did not start with Mary.
In fact the Jews almost stoned Jesus because He likened himself to God (I and my Father are one) St. John 10:30-33. 
Rational as well as educated people have found this statement impossible for 2,000 years. God taking on the form of a man, or a man being born thru a woman without the sperm of another man seems a small thought in the bigger picture.

Let's start at the beginning...
"He stretcheth out the north over the empty place, and hangeth the earth upon nothing" (Job26:7).

On the 6th day He created man (a self-sufficent, self sustaining independent being) out of the dust of the ground. Genesis 2:7
But that wasn't good enough. God then created All the beasts of the field, and birds of the air to help Adam. This help was still not sufficent and man was alone so God created a companion for man from man's own rib. Genesis 2:18-23

None of these are to hard for people to accept seeing as how God is Almighty.
The prophet Isaiah said in Isaiah chapter 8 verse 14 that Jesus would be a stone of stumbling and for a rock of offence to both the houses of Israel. He also wrote later in Chapter 53 that he would be despised and rejected of men. Rejected; eventhough He created the world! John 1:10-11

However the Bible supports the fact that Jesus existed before Mary.
"And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape" (John 5:36-37).
This is a very powerful statement. God spoke to the people all the time in the Old Testament. Various people saw the shape of God.

"Behold the blood of the covenant, which the LORD hath made with you concerning all these words. Then went up Moses, and Aaron, Nadab, and Abihu, and seventy of the elders of Israel: And they saw the God of Israel: and there was under his feet as it were a paved work of a sapphire stone, and as it were the body of heaven in his clearness. And upon the nobles of the children of Israel he laid not his hand: also they saw God, and did eat and drink" (Exodus 24:8-11).

Simple reasoning would lead to the conclusion that those 74 elders saw Jesus... The God of the Old Testament.
Even Paul understood this fact:  "all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ" (1 Corinthians 10:1-4).

Jesus led the children of Israel thru the Red Sea. This is that same rock that Isaiah said the people would be offended by. 

Jesus is called the Word because He is the spokesman for the Father. It also makes since for Him to be called the Word since He is the only God that has ever spoke to man.

Also Jesus made another statement that the people wanted to stone Him for:
"Your father Abraham rejoiced to see my day: and he saw it, and was glad. Then said the Jews unto him, Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast thou seen Abraham? Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Before Abraham was, I am" (John 8:52-58).

Abraham was born over 1,200  before Jesus mother Mary. By saying 'I AM' Jesus was explaining that He has always existed. I AM is the same thing that He (Jesus) told Moses (at the burning bush) that His name was.
"And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you" (Exodus 3:13-14).

Lastly, Matthew 1:18-23 the Bible tells us that the birth of Jesus was fulfilling the words of the prophet Isaiah in chapter 8 verse 14 where the Messiah is called 'Immanuel.' Matthew also informs us that the meaning of the name Immanuel is GOD WITH US!

JESUS... also known as The God of All Times.

May The Lord add a blessing to the reading of His Word
