—Strong's Greek & Hebrew Dictionary
In order to better understand (John 1:1), “The Word was God” , you should first become familiar with (The Expressions Of God).
As Christians, we accept the fact that God has always existed. Thus the Word (G3056) (logos = thought/will) of God always existed. This phrase, “The Word was God”, is just one of three frequently used “expressions” of God (The Father, Word, Holy Ghost). These expressions are abstract in that they describe various attributes of God, not three different personages. These choice words typically arise when the Bible addresses matters pertaining to the relationship that exist between God and man, and in particular that which existed between God and Christ.
These unique conceptual expressions of God where made manifest in many ways, flesh was just one way the word (logos) of God was manifested.
In The Beginning
1. The “logos” (word-thought/will) of God was “spoken” (God said…., etc..); and
2. The “logos” (word-thought/will) of God was “written” (the 10 commandments); and

[500 BC: The Completion of All Original Hebrew Manuscripts which make up the Old Testament]
3. The “logos” (word-thought/will) of God was “made flesh” (in Jesus Christ); and
4. The “logos” (word-thought/will) of God was “written” (in the New Testament)
[1st Century AD: Completion of All Original Greek Manuscripts which make up The New Testament]
Note: (John1:1) does not say the Word was “a god“, as if more than one god existed, but is singular therefore the phrase “with God” does not indicate a second diety rather it is immediately confirmed that the “Word was” in reference to God himself alone.
