Genesis 1 and John 1: Monday, February 6th, 2017

Listen to the homily here.


Genesis 1 and the Prologue of John

Genesis 1:1-3: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  2 The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters.  3 And God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light.

John 1:1-5: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  2 He was in the beginning with God;  3 all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.  4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.  5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”

What amaze me is that Genesis 1:1-3 was written several hundreds before Jesus came to us…and John 1:1-5 was written several decades after Jesus was crucified
