From the first he was the Word, and was God

In The Beginning, Jesus Was The Word And Was God.

From the first he was the Word, and the Word was in relation with God and was God.
John 1:1

Joh 1:12 To all those who did so take him, however, he gave the right of becoming children of God–that is, to those who had faith in his name:
Joh 1:13 Whose birth was from God and not from blood, or from an impulse of the flesh and man’s desire.
Joh 1:14 And so the Word became flesh and took a place among us for a time; and we saw his glory–such glory as is given to an only son by his father–saw it to be true and full of grace.

Joh 1:17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and the true way of life are ours through Jesus Christ.

Joh 1:29 The day after, John sees Jesus coming to him and says, See, here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!
