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?
Oh how interesting......But isn't this the same usage as found in the
beginning (GRIN!) of the Gospel of John? En Arche ho Logos....... There is
says "the", or am I really beginning to show of my vast fund of ignorance
on things Greek as well? Laugh!
