Creation Revision

“For Christians, the primary creation account is not Genesis, but the first chapter of the Gospel of John. There Genesis' opening words are directly quoted, only to be modified in light of Christ: "In the beginning… was the Word." (John 1:1) There we learn that 'all things came into being' through the Word, and that the Word became flesh and lived among us, bearing the name of Jesus.”
