Summary: The beginning, what beginning?

  Study Tools

John 1:1-3-In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God.

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

The beginning, what beginning? The beginning of creation!

Someone has said that Genesis describes the creation and the book of John describes recreation….What Jesus was going to do on the cross, to restore the relationship between man and God.

Proverb 8:22-31-“The Lord possessed me at the beginning of His way, Before His works of old.

I have been established from everlasting, From the beginning, before there was ever an earth.

When there were no depths I was brought forth, When there were no fountains abounding with water.

Before the mountains were settled, Before the hills, I was brought forth;

While as yet He had not made the earth or the fields, Or the primal dust of the world.

When He prepared the heavens, I was there, When He drew a circle on the face of the deep,

When He established the clouds above, When He strengthened the fountains of the deep,

When He assigned to the sea its limit, So that the waters would not transgress His command, When He marked out the foundations of the earth,

Then I was beside Him as a master craftsman; And I was daily His delight, Rejoicing always before Him,

Rejoicing in His inhabited world, And my delight was with the sons of men.

This will blow your mind, the one who has no beginning, it says in the beginning was the Word, not the beginning of Him but the beginning of creations, the one who has no end will one day bring a end to this old earthly life

Lad approached his mother, and asked, "Did God make Himself?" His mother presently left her work and breathed a silent prayer. Taking off her wedding ring, she gave it to her son and asked, "Where does this ring begin and where does it end?" Before long the boy answered, "There is no starting place and stopping place to a ring." The mother remarked, "Just so is God. There is no beginning and no end to God. He always has been and always will be.

Why did John refer to Jesus as the word?

Because the Jews understand that God revealed Himself thru words, thru speaking…. Then God said, “Let there be light” Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image.

Thru speaking He would reveal His power, His commands, the essential of who He is!

He who is the Bread of Life began His ministry hungering. He who is the Water of Life ended His ministry thirsting. Christ hungered as man, and fed the hungry as God. He was weary, and yet He is our rest. He paid tribute, and yet He is the King. He was called a devil, and cast out devils.... He prayed, and yet He hears prayer. He wept, and He dries our tears. He was sold for thirty nieces of silver, and redeems the world. He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and is the Good Shepherd. He died, and gave His life, and by dying destroys death

All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

This statement is both, positive and negative.
