A footnote in Leon Morris’ commentary on John 1:14 caught my heart and mind this morning. I hope you enjoy it as I did:
Laurence Housman brings out something of the wonder of it all:
“Light looked down and beheld Darkness.
‘Thither will I go,’ said Light.
Peace looked down and beheld War.
‘Thither will I go,’ said Peace.
Love looked down and beheld Hatred.
‘Thither will I go,’ said Love.
So came Light and shone.
So came Peace and gave rest.
So came Love and brought life.
And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.”
Leon Morris, The Gospel According to John, The New International Commentary on the New Testament (Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co., 1995). quoting Little plays of St. Francis: a dramatic cycle from the life and legend of St. Francis of Assisi. p. 202
