John 1:1-3

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [Christ is the Word of God; his name is the word of God. The Bible is not the Word; the Bible is scriptures. The LORD possessed me in the beginning of his way. I was set up from everlasting, from the beginning. Then I was by him, as one brought up with him; and I was daily his delight, rejoicing always before him. Pro 8:22-30.]

 2 The same was in the beginning with God. [The Word, who dwelled with God in the beginning, stepped out to become Jesus, the firstborn in the dimension of the new creation. I came out from the Father. I came forth from the Father. John 16:27-28.]

 3 All things were made by him; and there was nothing made without him. [him is Jesus.]

Hebrews 1:3

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had made ready a cleansing of sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high, [Notice! Jesus then was ready to cleanse sins, not excuse sins, not ignore sins, but to free them from the slavery to sin to totally cleanse and perfect them, sanctifying them and making them holy forever, Heb 10:14. That is what true grace does; true grace redeems from all iniquity (sin, lawless deeds), and purifies a people who are His very own, zealous for good works, done by His direction in what to do and what to say.]
