1 John 1:1-4 (Paraphase by Lee Sommitz)
1 That which existed before time, was revealed to us personally. We heard Him with our ears and were eyewitnesses. We were (living with Him) in very close proximity, beholding the details of His facial expressions and privileged to literally rub shoulders with the Word of Life. 2 We lived with Him and are bursting to tell you all we know about Him, this eternal One who had always been with the Father, and then took on human form. 3 We are relaying to you just what we heard and saw because we want you included in our close-knit group. This fellowship isn’t just a club, it incorporates intimate relationships with people, and also with God the Father and His Son! 4 We are compelled to write this because our exquisite joy in Him increases still more when we share it with others like you.
