In The Beginning Was The Word

The story of the Creation is written in the Bible. It tells how God made everything and how he put Adam and Eve together in his garden. It’s not just a story, though; it’s also an allegory, which means that there are deeper meanings hidden within it. So what does this story actually mean for us? Let me explain…

In The Beginning Was The Word

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. -John 1:1

The word “was” is in italics, which means it isn’t part of the original text. It’s inferred from context that this word should be included, but scholars agree that it has been added by later scribes to make sense out of what would otherwise be a confusing sentence.

The same was in the beginning with God.

In the beginning was the word. The same was in the beginning with God. And the word was made flesh and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth. John 1:1-3

All things were made by Him; and without Him was not anything made that was made.

The first verse of the Bible is a statement of fact about God. It says that He is the Creator of all things, not just humans, but everything else in the universe as well. The word for “made” (or “created,” or “formed”) in Greek is poieo, which means “to make or do.” This word also has other meanings in Greek:

  • To make poetry
  • To turn something into something else (e.g., turning water into wine)
  • To create new things out of nothing (e.g., creating human beings out of dust)

In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.

In Him was life; and the life was the light of men. (John 1:4)

The word “light” is a symbol for God’s wisdom, which He gave to mankind through Jesus Christ. This wisdom illuminates our minds, so that we can see what is true and good. The apostle John wrote: “In Him [Christ] was life; and the life was the light of men.” (John 1:4).

And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

The light is the word of god. The word is the light of the world. The light shineth in darkness, and the darkness comprehended it not.

The lord jesus christ is our light, and his word is our salvation; his power is made perfect in our weakness: for when we are weak, then are we strong; for when I am weak, then am I strong!

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This is the account of him. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. The true light which enlightens every man was coming into the world.[1]

  • * * * * *The Greek word for “true” in this verse is aletheia, which means “truth.” In this context it can be seen as meaning “authentic,” or “real.” It’s an important word because it contrasts with some other words translated as “truth” in English translations of the Bible:

The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

John was a prophet. He came to bear witness of Jesus and the Light, but he was not the light. John bore witness of Jesus, who himself is the Light that shines in every man’s heart (see John 9:5). The apostle Paul wrote in 1 Corinthians 13:12 that “if I have all faith so as to remove mountains but have no love, I am nothing.” The same can be said here; if we have all knowledge and understanding but lack faith in God’s Word, we will be nothing!

John testified that Christ was the Son of God and told us that he came into this world to testify concerning Him (see John 1:7). This testimony is found elsewhere in Scripture as well; for instance, when God created Adam out of dust and breathed life into him by His own breath (Genesis 2:7), He called Adam “man” because “Adam” means “man,” or human being—in other words: humanity itself!

He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

John the Baptist was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

The light is Jesus Christ, the word of God, and the spirit of God. He is also the son of man and son of God.

That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

From the beginning of your existence, you have been in a dark place. You have known nothing but darkness, and that is why you crave it. The sun never shone on you when you first came into this world. But I am here to tell you that there is a light that shines even in the darkest of places; it is the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

Jesus is the light of the world. He is the true light, which enlightens every man who comes into this world.

He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

This is not a historical story but an allegory told to give meaning to people’s lives

But this is not a historical story but an allegory told to give meaning to people’s lives. The story is about the nature of God and the nature of man; it is also about the nature of the universe and its relation to us, including our relation to our own bodies.

Through this tale, I hope you will come to see yourself as part of something much larger than yourself: a vast entity that includes everything else in the world, including all other people. If we can learn how we should interact with one another by studying how God interacted with His creation during those first six days (and if so many people have misunderstood what those interactions were), then perhaps we can also learn how we should behave toward ourselves—and toward our bodies—during each day left until tomorrow ends?

Conclusion

“In the beginning was the word” is a famous quote from John 1:1 that we find in many versions of the Bible. This passage tells us how Jesus Christ created everything and how he came to earth as a man to be our Savior. The purpose behind this story is not historical or scientific but rather an allegory told to give meaning and hope for people’s lives.
