WHAT DOES JESUS, ´THE BEGINNING OF CREATION´ MEAN?

  • “The faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God“ {Revelation 3:14}

Many, like the Jehovah’s Witnesses, reject Jesus as a divine being, because they take this vaguely translated phrase “beginning” as “proof” of their erroneous view. This verse describes the same situation as in John 1: 1, that Jesus was already there at the very beginning of creation, and that the whole Universe was created through His hand. 

The original Greek word for beginning is Archon / Arche and it means ruler, beginning, source, principle ; and in this verse the context is with the notion of creation. The word for creating, Ktiseos, means source, originator, beginning author. Jesus is the Author of our beginning, not a “created” being!
