|Chapter 1||The Great Gospel of John, Book 1|
Spiritual exegesis of the opening words of the Gospel of John
(John 1:1) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
1. This verse has already been the subject of a great many misrepresentations and interpretations; yes, even atheists have made use of this very text to dispute My Deity all the more surely since they in general denied the existence of the Deity. However, we are not going to once again present such false concepts whereby the confusion would only be increased, but shall bring light into the matter with the shortest possible explanation.

As things are, however, only the outer shell has been marred while the hallowed life has been preserved.
