From the very beginning, John wanted to emphasize Jesus’ deity. Each gospel has a unique emphasis and John wanted to highlight the truth that Jesus is God, which means He is our creator.
All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made
The Bible is the best commentary on the Bible. I love to see the perfect harmony of God’s word, especially when verses explain and elaborate upon other verses. For example, in the Psalms we read: “For though the LORD is high, he regards the lowly” (Ps. 138:6). Such a verse is perfectly displayed in and through Jesus. He is high and lifted up; yet, He came to this earth and walked among us, regarding the lowly.
As John continued to emphasize Jesus’ deity, he plainly stated that He is our Creator: “All things were made through him.” Other religions and sects hold that Jesus was a created being, not being co-equal and co-eternal with the Father. This verse clearly rejects that, for “without him was not anything made that was made.” Obviously He did not make Himself.
Jesus is our Creator: “Worthy are you, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created” (Rev. 4:11). He is the sovereign, self-existing One, without beginning.
