1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God.
This verse immediately takes us back to “the beginning,” prior to creation (Gen 1:1). God existed before time as we know it; indeed, there has never been a time when God did not exist (Ps 90:2). With God in the beginning was another figure—the Word.
Not only was the Word with God in the beginning, the Word was God. At the beginning of his Gospel John sets out the biblical principle that the Word—Jesus Christ—is fully divine. These introductory comments set the tone for the rest of the gospel and are essential to help the reader understand the way in which John portrays Jesus. Although he does not fully develop it here, John is introducing the concept of the Trinity; which is expanded in the first epistle attributed to him (1 John 5:7).
