Middle School Boys Bible Study- John 1:1-5,14 (1/14/12)


When we think of how big creation is we often think of the all the planets, stars, and galaxies. We see the uniqueness of a fingerprint and the complexity of even our own cells. We see the wide variety of animal and plant life and if we really think about it creation is pretty amazing.

The Bible is clear that all this creative design is a result of an all powerful creative designer and that He fashioned and spoke everything into being in the beginning. In the beginning of John, John is making a bold statement in saying that this same God that has always existed and created all things came to earth as a man. And this man was Jesus Christ.


John 1:1-5, 14


  • When was the Word? (v.1)
  • Who was the Word with? (v.1)
  • The Word was who? (v.1)
  • What was made through Him? (v.3)
  • What is in Him? (v.4)
  • What is the life? (v.4)
  • What does the light do? (v.5)

Gospel Connection-

Because of sin our world and our hearts are full of darkness. We see this in our neighborhoods and in our homes. But we have hope that no matter how dark it gets in the world that it can never snuff out the light. The light of Jesus exposes and pushes back the darkness in our world and in our hearts and leads us into a new way of living and thinking. That is good news.

Practical Questions-

  • What are some examples of darkness in your world?
  • How can the light of Christ (the gospel) expose and/or push back that darkness?

Memory Verse-

In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. – John 1:4-5
