“At The Beginning” ( John 1:1-2, 14; WYC ) by Carley Evans

Interesting how the Bible refers to God at the beginning as “the word.” “God was the word,” says John. God was a voice speaking in the emptiness surrounding the word. As God spoke, things came into existence so that we recognize that God’s spoken word is all powerful and the creative force inside as well as outside the universe as we know it. The Big Bang may very well have been the voice of God speaking – for something can not be made from nothing. Of course, the particle sparking the mighty explosion that began our universe must have been God’s word.

The Bible also tells us – through John – that God’s word at the beginning was God’s Son so that we understand God’s creative force, the word, is “the glory of the one begotten Son of the Father.”

Later, inside time and space, this word “is made flesh, or man” so as to live among us. In this way, “we have seen the glory of him, the glory as of the one begotten of the Father, the Son full of grace and truth.”

Therefore, grace and truth created the universe. “The word was at God.”

“In the beginning was the word, and the word was at God, and God was the word. [In the beginning was the word, that is, God’s Son, and the word was at God, and God was the word.] This was in the beginning at God. And the word was made man, and dwelled among us, and we have seen the glory of him, as the glory of the one begotten Son of the Father, full of grace and of truth. [And the word, that is, God’s Son, is made flesh, or man, and hath dwelled in us, and we have seen the glory of him, the glory as of the one begotten of the Father, the Son full of grace and truth.]”
