John 1:1-3 - "In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, and the Word was God . . . All things were made by Him: and without Him was made nothing that was made."
The apostles confess Jesus to be the Word: "In the beginning was the
Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God"; as "the image of
the invisible God"; as the "radiance of the glory of God and the very
stamp of his nature".
