In the beginning was Imagination:
in the beginning was the Seed.
And the Seed was in God:
And the Seed is God.
All things are the flowering of That.
In the Seed was that Light
which lighteth every man
that cometh into the world.
The Light shineth in darkness,
And the darkness overpowers it not.
This paraphrase of the first few verses of John was found in Happold. Apparently it is by Gerald Bullett. It is quite interesting. One thing I have been confused over before is the idea of the 'word' or logos.
