TSNTyndale Study Notes:

1:1-18 The beginning of this prologue (1:1-5) might be a poem or hymn sung by the earliest Christians. The prologue’s themes—the coming of the light into the world, the rejection of the light, and its gift of new life to believers—prepares readers for the story that follows.

TTNTyndale Theme Notes:

The Word

John raises the curtain on his Gospel with a stunning description of Jesus Christ as “the Word” (Greek logos, John 1:1). Both Greek and Jewish listeners in the first century would immediately recognize the profound meaning of this title. Greeks would have thought of the seminal forces that sustain the universe. Jewish minds would have thought back to God creating the world with his word (Gen 1:3-28; Ps 33:6, 9). In Jesus’ day, the Word of God had taken on creative personal attributes. Jews viewed God’s Word as personifying divine Wisdom. Through Wisdom, God extended himself into the cosmos, creating the world (Prov 8:22-31).

John makes it clear that Jesus shares the same essence as God; the Son existed before time, and he was the agent of all creation. John anchors the divinity of Jesus in this ancient Jewish concept of Wisdom. The divine Wisdom that has existed with God from before time can now be known in Jesus Christ. In perhaps the most striking verse penned by an apostle, John writes that this Logos, this Wisdom, became flesh and lived among us as a human (John 1:14). What God is, the Logos is, and the Logos is Jesus Christ.

UTNuW Translation Notes:

Note 1 topic: grammar-connect-logic-result

ὅτι

because

For here introduces the reason why John said that Jesus is “full of grace and truth” in verse 14. Alternate translation: “We can say that Jesus is full of grace and truth because”

Note 2 topic: writing-pronouns

αὐτοῦ

˱of˲_him

Here, his refers to Jesus. If it would be helpful in your language, you could state this explicitly. Alternate translation: “Jesus’”

Note 3 topic: figures-of-speech / abstractnouns

τοῦ πληρώματος αὐτοῦ

the fullness ˱of˲_him

Here, fullness refers to the grace and truth which John said Jesus was full of in verse 14. If your language does not use an abstract noun for the idea of fullness, you could express the same idea in another way. Alternate translation: “what he is full of” or “his full amount of grace and truth”

Note 4 topic: figures-of-speech / exclusive

ἡμεῖς πάντες ἐλάβομεν

we all received

Here, we refers to John and all believers. Your language may require you to mark this form. Alternate translation: “all of we believers have received”

πάντες ἐλάβομεν καὶ χάριν

all received and grace

Here, even indicates that “grace after grace” explains what “his fullness” means. Alternate translation: “have all received, that is, grace” or “have all received, namely, grace”

Note 5 topic: figures-of-speech / abstractnouns

χάριν ἀντὶ χάριτος

grace for grace

If your language does not use an abstract noun for the idea of grace, you could express the same idea in another way. Alternate translation: “kind act after kind act”

χάριν ἀντὶ χάριτος

grace for grace

Here, after could mean: (1) the second “grace” replaces the first “grace,” which is the most common use for this word. This meaning could indicate that the first “grace” refers to “the law” and the second “grace” refers to “Grace and truth” in the next verse. Alternate translation: “grace in place of grace” or “grace instead of grace” (2) the second “grace” is in addition to the first “grace.” Alternate translation: “grace in addition to” or “grace upon grace”
