The Gospel Account according to John gave the biggest perspective on Jesus. We will be using his account as our framework...which means we will be fitting the other accounts into John's account.
John was the youngest of the twelve disciples and his account was written the latest of the four accounts...about sixty years after Christ's death and resurrection. Another reason John has the biggest perspective of the Gospel Accounts is his mastery of Doctrine. We've seen with the Series on The Book of Daniel that Daniel's ability to receive and understand the greatest prophecy in the Old Testament was due to his mastery of Doctrine. Likewise, the greatest prophecy recorded in the New Testament is The Book of Revelation written by John...because of his mastery of Doctrine.
In fact, the first sentence of John's account documented the first (chronological) fact about Jesus...and was full of Doctrine.
"1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God."
Genesis 1:1 began with "In the beginning..." The meaning and etymology of beginning in that passage was "shaking, occurrence".
Genesis 1:1 didn't reference the first moment of time. Genesis 1:1 documented what happened when God began shaking the physical realm...which would involve creating the physical realm. (If you disagree with this conclusion, please read the next post and then make a comment in the "Comments Section" of that post.)
In verse 1, "Word" was Logos. We saw the following definition in the post titled, "The Spoken Word (New Testament)":
Strong's #3056 logos - "from 3004; something said (including the thought); by impl. a topic (subject of discourse), also reasoning (the mental faculty) or motive; by extens. a computation..."
John referred to Jesus as "the Word"...the ultimate thing that was said...the ultimate thing that was thought...the ultimate topic (subject of discourse)...the ultimate reasoning (mental faculty)...the ultimate motive.
John stated the story of Jesus began where the Old Testament began: "In the beginning..."
However, John stated Jesus was already with God and already was God when the story in the Old Testament began...
