Don Stewart

In the Book of Revelation Jesus is called the beginning of the creation of God.

To the angel of the church in Laodicea write: the amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God, says this (Revelation 3:14).

This verse has been used to say that Jesus was a created being.

Jesus Is The Origin Of God's Creation

The word translated "beginning" can also have the meaning of "origin." This idea is that the creation of all things originated with Jesus. He is the source of creation.

Summary

Jesus is called the beginning of God's creation. This does not mean that he is a created being. It refers to the fact that he is the origin of God's creation - he is the one who originated the creation process.
