Tradition tells us that John wrote the Prologue to his Gospel in a white heat of inspiration. His friends had asked him to set down the story of Jesus, so he asked them a favor in return: to fast and pray with him. When the fast was over, the Spirit came upon John, and he could not contain himself. The words poured out perhaps the very words he had been trying to say all his long life, but had never quite managed to find before.
I hadn't heard that before. Thanks for posting this article, and merry Christmas.
