        In John 1:1 the Logos is Jesus. Thinking of the Creation account from Genesis
1. The Logos is involved where God spoke. "God said, 'Let there be...'" The
Logos is the Word of God which is Christ.
        The Logos is not a substance but Christ himself - God. The work of creation
was truly Trinitarian with the Father, Son, and Spirit involved.

>Is it Christian thought that Jesus created the world from nothing ? (Jn 1:1)

>>No one commented on the creation in Jn 1:1 which refers to the logos as an
essential ingredient, but not as the only one.

Therefore, creation ex nihilo seems to have no support in the NT without
unnecessarily extending the range of the references.

Thanks for your help,
