Note: KJV is quoted throughout.
1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light."
-- Genesis 1:1-3
In John 1, the writer is clearly making reference to the beginning as it is described in Genesis 1. There was no Word before "Let there be light". There was no need for it, since ears came with Adam. So, the Λόγος had a beginning.
There was no "man" before Adam. Paul tells us so,
The first man is of the earth, earthy; the second man is the Lord from heaven.
-- 1 Corinthians 15:47
And Paul also tells us something else about this second man:
4But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law, 5 to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.
-- Galatians 4:4
Since the Son was "made of a woman", then he, just like the Word, had a beginning.
There is only ONE God and creator of all things. This ONE God uttered the first words heard in creation, and this ONE God knit himself a body in the womb of a woman.
I recently asked these questions of someone on this site,
In what form do you think the pre-incarnate Jesus Christ existed?
Do you imagine he was a man?
and this was the reply,
The pre-incarnate Jesus was In the form of spirit, obviously.
God is spirit (John 4:24).
Yes. For God (who is Spirit) to be sensible to Man (who is flesh),
He has to "appear" in suitable forms. The "man Jesus" is the
preeminent form in which God has appeared to Man.
The scripture makes it clear:
that the "man" who bore the name Jesus, who is the Christ, had a beginning;
that this "man" did not exist prior to being knit together in the womb of his mother;
that this "man" was a creation of GOD, to make it possible for GOD, himself, to walk and talk among his children, to heal them and set them free, and pay, himself, the necessary cost of their redemption;
that this "man" was manifestly seen as the first of many brethren to be born from the dead;
that this "man" will be manifestly seen set above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this world, but also in that which is to come, and that before him every knee will bow.
