John 1:1, In the beginning was the Word…”
“Word” in the Greek is “Logos,” a masculine noun. This Logos “became flesh, and dwelt among us.” (John 1:14). They saw this Logos; they heard this Logos speak; they touched this Logos. So “the Word” in John 1:1 it is a flesh and blood person. The Apostle John writes in 1 John 1:1-3, “That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked upon, and our hands have handled, concerning the Word of life, the life was manifested, and we have seen, and bear witness, and declare to you that eternal life which was with the Father and was manifested to us, that which we have seen and heard we declare to you, that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with His Son Jesus Christ.” And then we read, “All things were made through Him,” so we know we are looking at God Himself, come in the flesh! The “Word,” the “Logos” in John 1:1 is the “Him” of John1:14.
Jesus did not begin His existence in a manger in Bethlehem, Jesus, Himself said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM” (John 8:58). So He has always been! He is equal with God the Father. Isaiah the prophet heard a message from God, “Thus says the LORD, the King of Israel, And his Redeemer, the LORD of hosts: ‘ I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God. (Isaiah 44:6). God is the First and the Last, nothing existed before God and nothing will exist after Him. In Revelation Jesus identifies himself as the “Alpha and the Omega, (the first and last letters of the Greek alphabet) the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last” (Revelation 22:13).

“And the Word was with God.” This Pre-existent Christ is one with the Father. Christ was not just an observer, this tells us He was “with God.” He participated in the planning of the universe. He participated in the creation. “For by Him (Christ) all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth…” (Colossians 1:16).
