This year I’m once again reading a One Year Bible, which if you’re not aware is the entire Bible divided up into 365 daily readings. My New Testament passage for today was the beautifully majestic opening of the Gospel according to John.
As I was reading, a piece of music came to mind. I have shared this piece on Perfect Chaos before (last year) but I have many new followers since then who may not have heard it, and even if you have heard it before, it’s such a powerful piece that hopefully you’ll relish giving it another listen.
The piece of music is entitled ‘In The Beginning’ and is orchestrated by Joshua Spacht, an American composer, arranger, and producer. I will post the passage from John 1 that the music accompanies below. The passage is traditionally understood to make reference to the divinity of Jesus Christ, and also His eternality. I have embedded a lyric video of the song below the text.
I hope you enjoy the piece, and if you do, let me know in the comments!
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
(John 1:1-5 NKJV)
