In the first chapter of John we are introduced to Jesus Christ. John told us that he is the eternal Word who took on flesh, the God/man who lived among us. John the Baptist told us he is the Lamb of God who takes away our sins, and the one who gives us Holy Spirit to make us alive and new. Now we see that the reason Jesus is introduced to us is that we will follow him. In this passage, we are introduced to the first followers of Jesus, and we learn from their first steps with him.
