<<The reason I don't agree is that (1) LOGOS did not carry the
semantical baggage in Heraclitus' day that it later came to have in the
apostle John's day.>>

Hmmm. I can't but wonder how much semantical baggage "LOGOS" carried up
until the time John 1 was written! I have always been under the
impression that the introductory portion of the Gospel of John
represents the *establishment* of a new shade of meaning for the word.
Is there evidence of this "semantical baggage"'s existence (In NT
literature or elsewhere) prior to the writing of John 1?
