The Word Truth Became Flesh


Derek* experienced truth for the first time when he watched Scriptures in his sign language. His new discovery led his Deaf community to know that Jesus is The Word!

Derek is a Bible teacher at his local Deaf church. As he watched translated video Scriptures in the American Sign Language Version (ASLV) Bible, he noticed that in John 1:1-3 the WORD was signed as a person! What! Derek had never noticed the WORD as a person before while reading the written Bible.

This was something new that the ASLV was revealing to him. Derek wondered…

Did it mean that the Trinity was wrong? Was it supposed to be four-persons: The Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and the Word?”

Derek needed more. He was on a path to seek truth!

He went back and watched the full chapter of John 1. And there it was, signed perfectly clear in John 1:14, “the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.”

After this, Derek rushed to tell as many people as possible about his encounter with the Word. Another Deaf leader was astonished at his findings. Their conversation led the Deaf church through something new – something only a Bible in a heart language could reveal!

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14
