The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.  We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth...From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.  For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.  No-one has ever seen God, but God the One and Only, who is at the Father’s side, has made him known. (John 1:14, 16-18)
