<Liz>
According to my Greek teacher, it is highly unusual not to have the Greek
article he there. It should be  EN H ARXH.
They wouldn't have left the article out unless they were translating
directly from the Hebrew, even though the Hebrew was unpointed at the time.

Might the difference between "in THE beginning" and "in A beginning" imply
that this account does not describe "THE beginning" of the universe, but
rather its renewal?
