I'd like to provide an alternative perspective on this text and get some feedback on whether this is considered a legitimate approach to others. The more I read John 1, it seems that John is making a parallel with the creation account. Some examples that seem to indicate this to me: "In the beginning" in John 1:1 seems to reference the creation account ...

Romans 6:7 ὁ γὰρ ἀποθανὼν δεδικαίωται ἀπὸ τῆς ἁμαρτίας. (Rom 6:7 BGT) The verb δικαιόω doesn't simply mean 'justified' it has the sense of being vindicated or been proven innocent.

If the Wisdom was said to be ‘in’ the beginning of the ...
