The Good News according to John

1:1–1:2In the beginning was the Word, and the Word resided with God, and the Word was God; he was there all along.

John 1:1–1:2 Notes:

Greek word order primarily indicates emphasis, not meaning. Added weight for God being the object is the absence of the definite article. Also note that God may mean one or all members of the Trinity, depending on context.
