John 1: 3
“ Through him, all things were made, and without Him, nothing was made that has been made”.
1). ” Through Him, all things were made”.
The Word is a person, Jesus Christ. John 1: 17, ” for the law was given through Moses, Grace and Truth came through Jesus Christ”. Jesus, God’s agent in creation, created all things by His word.
Gen 1:3, God said, “ Let there be light, and there was light”.
Gen 1:6, God said, “ let there be a firmament in the midst of the water”.
Gen 1:9, God said, “ Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together in one place”.
Gen 1;11, God said. “ Let the earth bring forth grass”.
Gen 1:14, God said, “ Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night”.
Gen 1:20, God said, “ Let the waters abound with an abundance of living creatures”.
Gen 1:24, God said, “ Let the earth brings forth living creatures according to its kind”.
Gen 1; 26. God said, “ Let us make man in our image, according to Our likeness“. Us and our is plural, a hint to the Trinity.
2). ‘’And without Him, nothing was made that has been made”.
Jesus was not a created being. Jesus is not in the category of ”that has been made”. As a pre-existent being, Jesus could not create Himself. Him. He existed from eternity past to eternity future. He is YHWH, ”I AM”, present tense.
