The Gospels were written in the order of Mark, Matthew, Luke, and John. Each author had about 10 years more than the preceding author to study the scriptures and understand the hidden mystery.
Mark, recording the teaching of Peter, saw the story begin with the preaching of John the Baptist. Matthew pushes the start of the story to Abraham, and Luke to Adam. John, having the most time to study understands the mystery best and he pushes the beginning of the story to Genesis 1:1, with “In the beginning was the Word…”
The first three words of Genesis are “barashit bara Elohim” (this is poorly Anglecized.) The word “bara” is translated “created” but it is “bar” meaning “son” and “a” which is the aleph having the meaning “spoke and created the heavens and the earth”.
When God created, he spoke it into existence. It may be said that “bara” is “created by the word” or the “word which created”. Already we can see that the Son is the Word.
Observe that “bara” is in “barashit”. “Barashit” means “in the beginning”. The Word was in barashit. The word was in the beginning.
Bara is next to Elohim… “barashit bara Elohim” so the Word was with Elohim… the Word was with God.
Bara is the Son who created. He is the creator. The Word was God.
Joh 1:1 ¶ In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
John got his theology from the hidden layer of the scripture, not from a Greek philosopher.
He continues his riddling with the word “Elohim”. It has three puns; words that sound similar One for “not dark” or the Light, one for Life, and one for Bread.
Joh 1:4 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
Joh 6:32 Then Jesus said unto them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Moses gave you not that bread from heaven; but my Father giveth you the true bread from heaven.
Joh 6:33 For the bread of God is he which cometh down from heaven, and giveth life unto the world.
