In the gospel of John, Jesus is seen as the eternal, incarnate God who came to reveal the Father to a lost world. This book links back to Genesis 1:1, showing Jesus’ deity as creator of everything. Only God can create things. He is also seen as the Word (logos). The powerful spoken word is what was used to create everything. Through Him only is everlasting life. Also He compares and contrasts himself with light and darkness, because He was a great light in a dark time in history.
