Bible Book 43: John 1:1 a; “In the Beginning was”… The Lord Jesus Christ.

John 1:1: “In the Beginning was the Word…”

Adapted from: https://www.biblestudytools.com/commentaries/gills-exposition-of-the-bible/john-1-1.html

John 1:1: “In the Beginning was the Word…”

By Using ‘the Word’ here, God will have us to Understand HIS DIVINE INTERPRETATION,
of ‘the Word’ to not reference ‘The BIBLE,
or ‘the written Word of God’,

but of the VITAL, ESSENTIALLY IMPERATIVE,
LIVING Word of God, The Lord Jesus Christ.

It is Clear that God would have us to Understand ‘the Word’ here, to be His Reference
to The LIVING Word of God, The Lord Jesus Christ, from all that God Continues to Reveal
in this Passage, all the way from John 1:1, here, down to John 1:14
( and, of course, in the Entirity of The BIBLE, “in The Volume of The Book, it is Written of Me”,
i.e., THE BIBLE is WRITTEN about Jesus Christ.

This ‘Word’ was in the beginning,
This ‘Word’ was with God,
and This ‘Word’ is God;

This ‘Word’ is God and The Creation of all things is Ascribed to THIS WORD, JESUS.

This ‘Word’ is God because God Says HE,
JESUS is The Life and Light of men;

The ‘Word’, is Revealed to be ‘Jesus’,
from Jesus’ Coming into the World.

The ‘Word’, is Revealed to be ‘Jesus’,
by JESUS CHRIST Bestowing the Privilege of Adoption on believers;

and The ‘Word’, is Revealed BY GOD HIMSELF,
to be ‘Jesus’, from JESUS ASSUMING HIS HUMAN BODY, in His Incarnation;

and also The Lord God Almighty
Makes a Particular Application
of all GOD JUST REVEALED, in John 1:15-18*,
to GOD’S SON, JESUS CHRIST.

John 1:15;

“John bore witness of Him and cried, saying,
“This was He of Whom I spoke,

`He that Comes after me is Preferred before me, because He Was Before me.'”

“16 And of His Fullness have we all Received,
and Grace for Grace.

“17 Because the Law was given by Moses,
but Grace and Truth Came by Jesus Christ.

“18 No man has seen God at any time;
The Only Begotten Son,
Who is in the bosom of the Father,
He has Declared Him.”

In the Beginning was The Lord Jesus Christ.

*Bible References are an updating of the 1611 Authorized Version James,

The Third Millennium Bible ( TMB ),
with ‘The BIBLE of DIVINITY’, Capitolization of Divinity and Original lanuage References to ‘Specialised Wording’, which had been preserved in the Elizabethan ‘thous’ and ‘thees’, etc., brought into Current English.

The Third Millennium Bible ( TMB ),
https://www.biblestudytools.com/tmb/

The New Authorized VersionTM, is an updating of the full and complete text of the Authorized (King James) Version of the Holy Bible, first published in A.D. 1611.

The Third Millennium Bible is not a new translation, but a careful updating to eliminate obsolete words and archaic spelling by reference to the most complete and definitive modern American dictionary, the Webster’s New International Dictionary, Second Edition, unabridged.
..

The Third Millennium Bible is based on the most traditional, complete text.

The Third Millennium Bible New Testament is based on the traditional Greek New Testament text which was in continual use from the time of the Church Fathers until the last two decades of the nineteenth century, a period of over 1500 years.

This traditional text finds support in over 5000 ancient Greek manuscripts, more than any writing in the entire history of literature.

By contrast, most contemporary Bibles are supported by a mere handful of ancient Greek manuscripts, which were ignored by the church for more than a millennium.

NOTE: THEREFORE, THOSE ‘TRANSLATIONS’ USING A HANDFUL of DISGARDED ‘Copies’, which were ignored by the church for more than a A THOUSAND YEARS = BECAUSE THEY WERE KNOWN TO BE CURRUPT, SHOULD ALSO BE IGNORED, NOW.

JOHN 1:1 con’t:

And likewise from what this evangelist elsewhere says of him, when he calls him the word of life, and places him between the Father and the Holy Ghost;

and speaks of the record of the word of God, and the testimony of Jesus, as the same thing;

and represents him as a warrior and conqueror, ( 1 John 1:1 1 John 1:2 1 John 1:7 ) ( Revelation 1:2 Revelation 1:9 ) ( 19:11-16 ).

Moreover this appears to be spoken of Christ, from what other inspired writers have said of him, under the same character;

as the Evangelist Luke, ( Luke 1:2 ),
the Apostle Paul, ( Acts 20:32 ) ( Hebrews 4:12 ) and the Apostle Peter, ( 2 Peter 3:5 ).

And Who is called the Word, not as man;
because as man He was not in the beginning with God, but became so in the Fulness of time;

nor is the man God;

besides, SPEAKING of ‘Jesus as a man’ as such, he is a creature, and not the Creator, nor is he the Life and Light of men; again, SPEAKING of ‘Jesus as a man’, only regarding His human body THE GOD ELECTED and ‘PREPARED’ for Jesus Christ,
the Divine Son of God, WHO IS GOD, The Second Person in THE ETERNAL TRIUNE GODHEAD.

We endeaver to WORSHIP THE ONE and ONLY,
TRUE and LIVING, CREATOR of THE UNIVERSE,
as HE HAS REVEALED HIMSELF, by becoming
AWARE of The GODHEAD.

Moreover, JESUS CHRIST was the Word,
before Jesus Christ, the Divine Son of God,
WHO IS GOD,
The Second Person
in THE ETERNAL TRIUNE GODHEAD was MADE a man, BY IMACULATE CONSEPTION,

and therefore

THE HUMAN BODY GOD PREPARED for THE ETERNALLY DIVINE LORD JESUS
may simply not be referred to as ‘something to do with The DIVINE NATURE’.

THE HUMAN BODY GOD PREPARED for THE ETERNALLY DIVINE LORD JESUS TO ASSUME,
WAS SIMPLY HUMAN.

Nor can any part of the human nature be so called ‘GOD’ or DIVINE;

The flesh can never be called ‘GOD’ or DIVINE,
because Jesus Christ,
the Divine Son of God, WHO IS GOD,
The Second Person
in THE ETERNAL TRIUNE GODHEAD,
was Made flesh; THE ETERNAL WORD was MADE to ASSUME a None-Divine Nature of Flesh

AND, THEREFORE JESUS’ human soul WAS NOT ETERNALLY GOD. Jesus’ FLESH Was CREATED, PREPERED by God The Father.

THE ETERNAL Self-Subsistence, Deity,
and The Creation of all things,
can never be ascribed to that ‘human nature body of Jesus, which is finite FLESH;

HOWEVER, JEHOVAH JESUS CHRIST is The Word
as the ETERNAL DIVINE NATURE Son of God,
WHO IS GOD,
The Second Person
in THE ETERNAL TRIUNE GODHEAD

is Evident here from what is Attributed to Him,
and from The Word being said to be GOD, DIVINE, INFINITE and ETERNAL.

as in ( John 1:14 to John 1:18, above )

and from those places,
where the Word is explained by the Son,
to be GOD, DIVINE, INFINITE and ETERNAL,

by comparing
“1 John 5:5; Who is He that Overcomes the World, but He that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?

with

“1 John 5: 7 Because there are Three
that Bear Record in Heaven:
the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost;
and These Three are One.”

and “Matthew 28:19; Go therefore
and teach all nations,
baptizing them in The Name of the Father,
and of The Son, and of The Holy Ghost.”

And JESUS CHRIST is called GOD
from His DIVINE ETERNAL Nature,
being Begotten of the Father;

Because as the Word, whether silent or expressed, is the birth of the mind, the image of it,
equal to it, and distinct from it;

so Christ is the Only begotten of the Father,
The Express Image of GOD THE FATHER’S Person, in all things JESUS is EQUAL to THE FATHER, except by ‘Office’.

And JESUS CHRIST is REVEALED to us
as a Distinct Person from GOD THE FATHER:

and JESUS CHRIST may be called, “GOD”,
because of some Action, or Actions,
Associated with Jesus,
or Ascribed to Jesus.

THE LORD GOD, JESUS CHRIST
Spoke for,
and on the Behalf of the Elect of God,
in The Eternal Council
and Covenant of Grace and Peace.

THE LORD GOD, JESUS CHRIST
Spoke all things out of nothing, in Creation;
for with regard to those Words so often mentioned in the History of the Creation,

in “John 1:3;

All things were Made by Him,
and without Him
was not anything Made that was Made.”

Also Jesus was Spoken of as The Promised Messiah, throughout the whole Old Testament Admidminstration of The ONE Eternal Covenant of Grace and Peace.

Jesus Christ is also Spoken of as
The Interpreter of His Father’s Mind,

as well as JESUS Being Spoken of in Eden’s garden,
when

“they heard The Voice of the LORD God, Walking in the garden in the cool of the day.

And Adam and his wife hid themselves
from The Presence of the LORD God
amongst the trees of the garden.

9 And the LORD God Called to Adam
and Said to him, “Where are you?”,

in Genesis 3:8&9.

DEAR FRIENDS THAT IS JESUS,
THE WORD,
SPEAKING to OUR GREASTEST GRAND DAD, ADAM.

Just as Jesus is Always Spoken of as
The Interpreter of His Father’s Mind
well as in the days of His flesh,
DURING HIS EARTHLY MINISTRY

and now

THE ETERNAL, ALMIGHTY, DIVINE WORD,
JESUS Speaks in Heaven for the saints.

Where are you?
