Does John 1:1 describe Genesis 1:1?

The Consensus

  • John 1:1 (KJV) is thought to describe the beginning of the first day of creation. Genesis 1:1 (KJV)
  • It is also thought to describe the beginning of Creation Day in eternal terms, whereas Genesis 1:1-5 (KJV) describes the creation of our solar systems etc.

My Opinion:

John 1:1 (KJV) describes the first day of creation but not the beginning thereof. It describes the beginning of the conceptualization of a new beginning (Genesis 1:5, KJV);* the beginning (Genesis 1:1, KJV) having been both commencement and completeness of what began.
