« In the beginning was the Word » establishes the eternal existence of the Son. See Col. 1:17 « and the Word was with God » establishes the distinct personality of the Son, an essential Christian truth according to 1 John 2 :22-23 « and the Word was God» establishes the absolute deity of the Son. Thus, Scripture teaches us that He is eternal as well as God just like the Father, however distinct from Him while yet being one with Him (John 10:30). In John 1:14 «And the Word was made flesh» declares the humanity of the Son in incarnation, fully God and fully man. « Great is the mystery of godliness; God was manifest in flesh» 1 Tim. 3:16. Kiss the Son(Ps. 2 :12).
