John 1:4 And The Deity Of Jesus Christ

"Take, for instance, the statement in the 4th verse, "In him was life." In the original Greek, this verse actually declares Jesus Christ to be not only the possessor of life, like you and me, but the originator and disposer of life. In John 10:18, Jesus said of His own physical life, "No man taketh it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again." No human being in his right mind would dare to make such claims. Either Jesus Christ was God or he was insane. He could not have been a mere human being, as the whole Gospel of John illustrates. But what He said in John 10:18 was declared succinctly in John 1:4."
