Capitalising logos in John 1 has nothing to do with Jesus being called 'Word of God'.
1 John 1:1 does, but this is an personal experience of the author and peers - touching, seeing - this is not the beginning of creation, but the new beginning Jesus made possible. Note it is the life of the Father which the 'word' (which is now Jesus) manifests and has the appropriate title/role or name.
What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have looked at and touched with our hands, concerning the Word of Life — and the life was manifested, and we have seen and testify and proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us.
Continuing, it has nothing to do with any of Jesus' titles granted him at various times after his arrival on the earth scene. When John 1:1 refers to the logos, Jesus wasn't born yet in John's account of events.
The logos becoming flesh was Jesus' grand entry - and is certainly NOT part of, 'in the beginning' concerning the creation of all things! That was the role of God through the/His logos - and Jesus being appointed the heir to. Heb 1:1-4
Seeing as the personhood (he, him) attributed to the logos is not clearly revealed at all, and due to the complete lack of any other reference to this abstract that John has delivered, there is no substance to making more of it than John intended. John is revealing what the logos is, not who.
The word logos is used many times without capitalisation - everywhere except the translators treatment of John. Excepting those few where we have the Word of Life or Word of God, Rev 19:13
Note Rev 1:2 '...who testified to the word of God' no capital there in any version.
(Is Jesus the word of God or not? They don't seem to have made up their minds)
Heb 4 :12 The word of God is living and active and sharper than any two-edged sword…
If anywhere, one would think this verse deserved capitalisation... (Youngs renders 'reckoning')
Now this is but one example of a complete abandonment of a capitalisation bias that has otherwise plagued the John verses - leading to doctrine based on ideas and guesses - not solid biblical evidence.
Logos is the Gr. for many English words as noted below;
Luke 7:17 And the news about Jesus spread…
John 6:60 This is a difficult statement…
Phil 2:16 holding fast the word of life…
Matt 5:37 But let your statement be, 'Yes, yes…
1 Cor 2:4 my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words…
What is the justification for capitalising logos in John?
Nothing more than a biased appropriation of various parts of scripture to enhance a Jesus to be more than he is. Jesus is a man without sin, the son of God.
There is no clear expression of the logos being a ‘person’, and is never mentioned again- except in connection with Jesus. Jesus was sent to die, if the logos is now Jesus, this logos ‘who’ is God, cannot die. Some may be comfortable using philosophy, traditional logic and theological myth to reimagine the word of God to fit human constructs, but that’s not what we’re here for.
John does not say, ‘in the beginning was Jesus’. We must not conflate logos with Jesus unless the text indicates this for us, as in v14. Jesus, God, the apostles and prophecy all speak of Jesus as a man - why must we insist he is God?
