Dear Ian,
I have no idea why you are bringing in John's Gospel to our exchange. I have not
mentioned it nor have I given it any consideration in my thinking about Gen. 1:1.  I
have no theological attachment to creation "ex nihilo" in Gen. 1, nor am I concerned
to link it to John 1 when reading Genesis.
