All things were made by him

John 1:30 says, “All things were made by him [Jesus]; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

Made is used three times in this verse and all three times it is a translation from the Greek word ginomai, according to the Linked Word Project.

Definition of ginomai

  1. to become, i.e. to come into existence, begin to be, receive being
  2. to become, i.e. to come to pass, happen
    of events
  3. to arise, appear in history, come upon the stage

  4. to be made, finished

Is there anything that exists today that was not made by Jesus?
