The word, the logos, God's plan, His purpose, became flesh and dwelt among us. With the coming into existence of Jesus Christ at his conception and birth, the full plan and heart of God was expressed as a human being. Jesus Christ was full of divine grace and truth. What became flesh in John 1.14 was not a preexistent or eternally begotten Son of God. What became flesh was God's full plan of salvation revealed in the Man Jesus Christ.
