In this lesson we focus on two extraordinary statements made by John. The first: "No one has seen God at any time." But what about all the examples in the Old Testament where it says someone did see God? Early Christians provide a fascinating explanation that resolves this apparent contradiction. The second, we look at the often-misunderstood statement, "Perfect love casts out fear." Does that mean Christians no longer need to fear God, or is there another way to understand what John meant here?
