1. Exposition

What is the value of repeating the verb “to see” from verse 1?

1 John 1:2 (ESV)

2 the life was made manifest, and we have seen it, and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was made manifest to us

Repeating the verb serves to strengthen the author’s argument against those who denied the incarnation of the eternal Son of God in the person of Christ.
