Doctor Steuss Posted June 4, 2009 Share Posted June 4, 2009 We're all familiar with this passage, I'm sure. In the Cardinal Schonborn book I'm reading he cites it, and for some reason a few words stood out to me that never have before: 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. The last three words kind of seem like an awkward addition given the assumption of an unequivocal â??allâ? that is applied by the majority of Christianity.If He made *all* things, then why the strange qualifier at the end about things that were made. It almost reads as if it is a tacit acknowledgment to there being things that werenâ??t made (i.e. that the â??allâ? isnâ??t *all*).Are there any commentaries that focus on the inclusion of these last few words, or am I just making much ado about nothing?
