"There Is One God And One Mediator Between God And Men, The Man Christ Jesus" 
1 Timothy (2:5)

John 1:1-4 – In The Beginning Was The Word


John 1:1-4


1 In the beginning was the Word <1>Note: The “Word” G3056 does NOT equate or translate into “Jesus” G2424, these two words are clearly not One and the same. The Word was God, not Jesus, but God’s word/thought/will/plan was given to us or “spoken” through Jesus. John 5:37, 12:49, 14:10, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him <2> Ref. Verses Where “He” & “Him” Should Be Referred To As “It”, and without him was not any thing made that was made. 4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.



Understanding John 1:1-4


*Note: It is far easier to understand this passage of scripture after you first review the following links:

(The Expressions Of God)( The Word Was God)( The Word Was Made Flesh)(Verses Where “He” & “Him” Should Be Referred To As “It”)


You cannot begin to understand the above passage correctly until you first understand the word flexibility and pronoun structuring of the Greek language. A single Greek word can have multiple meanings and be correctly translated into many different English words. However, choosing the correct or best English word to transliterate into scripture is always a challenge for linguistics and translators. When an incorrect English word choice is applied it presents the incorrect intent (message) of that passage and usually many other scriptures then appear to also contradict or conflict with one another.

In this particular passage, we are dealing with the Greek word “logos.” This particular Greek word “Logos” – (G3056) can also be correctly translated as, or interpreted as, being the thought of God (what God was thinking or planning).

Just for the purpose of clarity, if we associate this Greek word “logos” as the “thought” or “plan” of God, it becomes much clearer and easier to understand and harmonizes much better with other scriptures that relate to God’s Word (His thought, purpose, will, plan, etc.), which was made known (manifest, revealed) to mankind through His Son Jesus, “the Word (plan of God) made flesh.”


For example, the above passage could also be correctly worded in English as follows:

  1. In the beginning, was the plan(thought) of God, and the plan was with God, and the plan was God’s.
  2. The same plan was in the beginning with God.
  3. All things were done according to it, and without it, nothing was done, that was done.
  4. In this plan was life, and that life was the light to mankind.


The Book Of Yahweh reads as follows:

  1. In the beginning was the plan of Yahweh, and the plan was with Yahweh, and the plan was Yahweh’s.
  2. The same plan was in the beginning with Yahweh.
  3. All things we’re done according to it, and without it nothing was done, that was done.
  4. In this plan was life, and that life was the light to mankind.




God’s Word/Thought = God’s Plan/Purpose/Will


Ephesians 1:9   (KJV)

Having made known unto us the mystery of his will,(plan) according to his good pleasure which he hath purposed himself:


Ephesians 1:11   (KJV)

11  In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:(plan)

Ephesians 3:11   (KJV)

11 According to the eternal purpose (plan) which he purposed in Christ Jesus our Lord:”


2 Timothy 1:9   (KJV)

9  Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his own purpose (plan) and grace, which was given us in Christ Jesus before the world began,
