124: The Meaning of “Protos” in The Prologue of John

June 11, 2020

What does "protos" mean in John 1:15? Is John the Baptist saying that Jesus outranked him or that Jesus was before John in some sense? This episode dives deep into John 1:15 and weighs the strengths and weaknesses of the two different meanings of the ambiguous Greek word "protos". The study concludes by situating John 1:15 in light of the Prologue's theology of Jesus as the embodiment of God's personified word and wisdom.
