The Gospel of John: The Logos
Mark starts his Gospel account with the a full grown John the Baptist, making an announcement about Jesus. Luke starts with the birth of John the Baptist, and the birth of Jesus. Matthew starts even further back in time, with a human genealogy of Jesus dating all the back to Abraham. But John starts from a different place entirely, with the pre-existent and eternal “Word” or “Logos” of God, through whom all the universe was made.
