*Jesus’ preexistence means that he existed before he came to earth as a human being.

Read John 1:1-14.

Christ’s existence did not begin when He was conceived in Mary’s womb and born into the world several months later. As an eternal divine being, He has always existed without beginning and end throughout eternity.

*In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God. The Word was with God in the beginning. All things were created by him, and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created.* 
***— John 1:1-3**.

John gives Jesus the title, “the Word,” which means that Christ is the communication of God—the way we get to know more about God and his will. Then John says that “the Word” was “with God,” “was fully God,” and also that the Word created all things. This is a clear declaration of Christ’s deity.

Scripture tells us not only of his pre-existence but his preeminence. That means he is first. In everything. First in importance, first in honor, first in exaltation. This also means that he deserves preeminence in our lives.

Jesus was not just another teacher, or another prophet. Jesus is God revealing himself, his plan, his will, his truth to humanity.
