|In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.|
Of all four Gospels, the Gospel of John is certainly the most unique. In fact, John Calvin made the interesting comment that if Matthew, Mark, and Luke exhibit Jesus' body, John's Gospel "exhibits his soul."
And in this exhibition, John starts off with a description of Jesus Christ in which he says four things about Him.
1) Jesus is the Word. In Greek, Jesus is the logos, the cause or reason for everything that exists.
2) Jesus existed in the beginning. Before time began, Jesus was.
3) Jesus was with God. Although Jesus is divine Himself, He exists in a Trinitarian relationship with God the Father.
4) Jesus is God. He contains all the attributes and characteristics of God the Father.
