An Only Begotten Son


Joseph and Mary
your son Isaiah 9: 6-7
is only first born Matthew 1: 16

without original sin
human stain
of Adam and Eve Genesis 3: 1-18


only child
born without
original sin Matthew 20: 28

an immaculate Matthew 1: 18
conception Matthew 1: 23
awaited virgin birth Matthew 1: 25


third perfect
human being
second Adam Hebrews 7: 28

only perfect soul
tempted by sin
that did not fall Mark 1: 13


God incarnate
in flesh
our long promised John 1: 14

Messiah born John 1: 41-42
into the world
in Bethlehem Matthew 2: 1

Adam made by
God’s own hands
shaped in red clay

God breathed breath
of life into Adam
spark of life living soul Genesis 2: 7


Eve rib taken
from Adam in sleep
flesh of his flesh

soul of his soul
God created first man
God created first woman Genesis 2: 20-23


in the beginning
was the Word
the Word was with God John 1: 1

the Word was a God
all things came into
existence through him


apart from him
not even one thing
came into existence John 1: 1-3

Lord Jesus Christ John 20; 28
Our Lord and Saviour Acts 13: 23
The Blood of the Lamb John 1: 29


For God
loved the world
so much

that he sent
his only
begotten son John 3: 16

as a ransom
sacrifice for our sin 1Timothy 2: 6
to save the world John 3: 17

so that all people
exercising faith in him
would not be judged John 3: 18

but be saved
given eternal life
for there is one God

and one mediator
between God and men
a man Christ Jesus 1Timothy 2: 5

who said
I am the way
the truth

and the life
and no one
comes to God

except through me John 14: 6

Poem of the Day

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
