Old Testament[]

YHVH* produced me as the beginning of his way,
The earliest of his achievements of long ago.
From ancient times I was installed,
From the start, from times earlier than the earth.
When there were no deep waters, I was brought forth,
When there were no springs overflowing with water.
Before the mountains were set in place,
Before the hills, I was brought forth,
When he had not yet made the earth and its fields
Or the first clods of earth’s soil.
When he prepared the heavens, I was there;
-Proverbs 8:22-27a

In the beginning[]

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God[1]. This one was in the beginning with God. All things came into existence through him, and apart from him not even one thing came into existence. What has come into existence by means of him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light is shining in the darkness, but the darkness has not overpowered it. (John 1:1-5)

He [Jesus Christ] is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; because by means of him all other things were created in the heavens and on the earth, the things visible and the things invisible, whether they are thrones or lordships or governments or authorities. All other things have been created through him and for him. Also, he is before all other things, and by means of him all other things were made to exist, and he is the head of the body, the congregation. (Colossians 1:15-18a)
