1 NOTE: Yah Chanan is placed first because it is the genesis of the Evangelism’s. This also allows Acts to follow Luqa in their proper sequence
2 * Ber 1:1 Yah Chanan 1:1 “In the Be-kadmin of creation, there was the Manifestation (Milta). And that Manifestation was with Allaha and G-d was the [the embodiment of] that Manifestation. Gospel according to the Hebrews

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
[In the beginning was the Word.] In the beginning; in the same sense with Bereshith, In the
beginning, in the history of the creation, Genesis 1:1. For the evangelist propose this to himself,
viz. to shew how that, by the Word, by which the creation was perfected, the redemption was
perfected also: That the second person in the holy Trinity, in the fulness of time, became our
Redeemer, as in the beginning of time he had been our Maker. Compare this with verse 14:
Verse 1
In the beginning was the Word.
Was with God.
The Word was God.
Verse 14
The Word was made flesh.
Dwelt among us.
Was made flesh, and we beheld, &c.
[Was the Word.] There is no great necessity for us to make any very curious inquiry, whence
our evangelist should borrow this title, when in the history of the creation we find it so often
repeated, And God said. It is observed almost by all that have of late undertaken a commentary
upon this evangelist, that the Word of the Lord, doth very frequently occur among the
Targumists, which may something enlighten the matter now before us. “And Moses brought the
people out of the camp to meet the Word of the Lord.” “And the Word of the Lord accepted the
face of Job.” And the Word of the Lord shall laugh them to scorn. “They believed in the name of
his Word.” And my Word spared them. To add no more, Genesis 26:3, instead of “I will be with
thee,” the Targum hath it And my Word shall be thine help. So Genesis 39:2, “And the Lord was
with Joseph”: Targ. And the Word of the Lord was Joseph’s helper. And so, all along, that kind of
phrase is most familiar among them…

In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
[In him was life.] The evangelist proceeds from the creation by the Word, to the redemption of
the world by the same Word. He had declared how this Word had given to all creatures their
first being, verse 3; “All things were made by him”: and he now show’s how he restored life to
man when he lay dead in trespasses and sins. “Adam called his wife’s name Hevah, life,” [Eve,
AV Chavah, margin] Genesis 3:20: the Greek reads Adam called his wife’s name, ‘Life.’ He
called her Life who had brought in death; because he had now tasted a better life in the promise
of the woman’s seed. To which it is very probable our evangelist had some reference in this
place.
[And the life was the light of men.] Life through Msheekha was light arising in the darkness of
man’s fall and sin; a light by which all believers were to walk. St. John seems in this clause to
oppose the life and light exhibited in the gospel, to that life and light which the Jews boasted of
in their law. They expected life from the works of the law, and they knew no greater light than
that of the law; which therefore they extol with infinite boasts and praises which they give it.
Take one instance for all: “God said, Let there be light. R. Simeon saith, Light is written there
five times, according to the five parts of the law [i.e. the Pentateuch], and God said, Let there
be light; according to the book of Genesis, wherein God, busying himself, made the world. And
there was light; according to the book of Exodus, wherein the Israelites came out of darkness
into light. And God saw thelight that it was good; according to the Book of Leviticus, which is
filled with rites and ceremonies. And God divided betwixt the light and the darkness; according
to the Book of Numbers, which divided betwixt those that went out of Egypt, and those that
entered into the land. And God called the light, day; according to the Book of Deuteronomy,
which is replenished with manifold traditions.” A gloss this is upon light, full of darkness indeed!
