John 1:1-3

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was god.1 [Christ is the Word of God; his name is the word of God. The Bible is not the Word; the Bible is scriptures. "The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning. Then I was by him, as one brought up with him; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him." Pro 8:22-30.]

 2 The same was in the beginning with God. [The Word, who dwelled with God in the beginning, stepped out to become Jesus, the firstborn in the dimension of the new creation. "I came out from the Father. I came forth from the Father." John 16:27-28; and He possesses all the fullness of the Father, is the only visible representation of the Father, (the invisible God), and is the only begotten Son, (all other sons of God are adopted).]

 3 All things were made by him; and there was nothing made without him. [him is Jesus.]

Hebrews 11:3

 3 Through faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the visible things were not made from anything we can see. [The worlds were created by the Lord Jesus Christ, who created all things in heaven and earth, and whose name is "the word of God." As George Fox said, "To think the Bible framed the worlds is ridiculous." The word is the Spirit, not a scripture. This one of several scriptures that prove the word, the word of God, and the word of the Lord all mean Christ, not the Bible.]
