Search original-language scholarship
The original-language scholars who contributed to this series possess a depth of knowledge available to you when you reference the International Critical Commentary. Even though you may not be familiar with ancient Greek works, the ICC provides access to those who are. For example, in his commentary on John 1–4, John F. McHugh notes:
Ἐν ἀρχῇ. The absence of the article is normal, even classical, in such prepositional phrases, especially in designations of time (BDF 255 ). Thus Thucydides writes (I 35,5) ὥσπερ ἐν ἀρχῇ ὑπείπομεν, and Plato (Timaeus 28b), ἐν ἀρχῇ δεῖν σκοπεῖν.
References to Plato and Thucydides are tagged in your Logos library, allowing you to do primary-source research. Here, the benefits of the Logos edition truly shine.

In the same chapter, McHugh takes an introspective look at John 1:3:
One may then recall that in Gen 1, the creation proceeds from day to day, in a careful logical succession, establishing the conditions in which living things may grow until on the sixth day, when all is at last ready for the completion of the work, God creates the land-based beasts and finally the human race. In Genesis, all these things, from the first creation (light) to the last, were brought into existence through God’s Word. So in the Fourth Gospel, all proceeds towards the restoration of life for the entire human race on the sixth day of the final week of Jesus’ earthly life, with Paradise Restored.
Through careful exegesis, we rediscover the beauty of creation in the work of Jesus Christ. As McHugh points out, the careful crafting of Genesis 1 plays out in John’s Gospel as he gently leads the reader toward that final, restorative act: the passion week.
