Not one thing
Came into being.”
πάντα δι’ αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο, καὶ χωρὶς αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο οὐδὲ ἕν ὃ γέγονεν.
John said that the word (ὁ Λόγος) pre-existed before the world. All things were made through him (πάντα δι’ αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο). Without him there would be no life, nothing could come into existence (καὶ χωρὶς αὐτοῦ ἐγένετο οὐδὲ ἕν ὃ γέγονεν). Wisdom, chapter 9:1 stated that God created humans or men (ἄνθρωπον) with wisdom (τῇ σοφίᾳ) and his words (ἐν λόγῳ σου) to have dominion over all the creatures. Proverbs, chapter 8:23, said that wisdom was created at the beginning of creation. Wisdom was created before anything else, including before water, mountains, earth, the heavens, and humans. Wisdom was like the co-worker at creation. John has combined these various elements of the word, wisdom, and creation together. Without the Word, nothing would exist. Do you believe in a creative God?
