John 1:14 And the Word became flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten from the Father,) full of grace and truth.

John 1:14 is a great step in God's move with man and God's move in man. The Old Testament is essentially a history of Jesus' forebears, according to the flesh. Romans 1:3 says " Concerning (God's) Son, who came out of the seed of David according to the flesh."

After a long history of God working with man, such as Abraham, Isaac, Moses, and Samuel, God, the eternal God, became flesh. He entered into man, mingled with man, and became one with man. So "became" is a big New Testament word. This commenced His move in man. This word is also used in verse 12, "But to as many as received him, to them ave he the power to become the children of God."

Another word in this verse is "from." The only Begotten came "from" the Father. The Greek word is para, which means from/with or, by the side of. He came from the Father, and He came with the Father. He testified repeatedly that "the Father is with me." 

John 8:29 And he that sent me is with me: the Father hath not left me alone; for I do always those things that please him.

After His resurrection, He is not only our Emmanuel, God with us, He is in us. Praise the Lord!!!!!

John 14:17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.
