In the Beginning…

“In [the] beginning…”In the Bible this phrase, “in the beginning,” is used in two ways,

  1. the first time in Genesis 1:1
  2. and the second time in John 1:1. The beginning mentioned in John 1:1 was earlier than the beginning mentioned in Genesis.

The beginning mentioned by John was the beginning in eternity, a beginning without any beginning.

The beginning revealed in Genesis 1 was the beginning of time, which started with God’s creation. John refers to eternity, while Genesis refers to time.
