'Revelation is not so much divinely given gnosis to provide us with knowledge concerning the nature of God, man, and the world, as it is divinely inspired interpretation of God's activity of redeeming men so that they might worship and serve Him in the world. Even more broadly, one can say that from the beginning, in confrontation with gnosticism and gnosticizing tendencies, the church has continued to be aware that salvation and faith depend vitally on what God has done in history, especially in the historical character of the work of Christ.' Richard Gaffin, Introduction


Vos the exegete is masterful, and here takes special pains to destruct the Tubingen defective 'prolepsis' teaching on the full range of the word Logos, as referring pre-eminently to the pre-existent Christ in the first 14 verses of John 1. Genesis 1 and John 1 hold parallel glory to Jesus as the Mediator in creation, as His role was the role played by the divine word in Genesis. The temporal role that Christ fulfils and executes in the redemptive role as Messiah also does not do justice to the rich meaning of John 1. But, as the Logos who also sustains the world He created, a study so enriching and rewarding is offered, and we are guided under the hand of a master theologian to believe that the obvious progress of thought in John's Prologue speaks likewise in favor of this conclusion. Without doubt the Tubingen teaching is the universal interpretation of John 1, so Vos treads on fresh ground for most of us. After having read this, you will never again read the Prologue of John 1 with a diminished view on the glory of Christ's eternal supremacy.
