Refering to Jesus as the Word who was in the beginning with God and was God, John 1 verse 3 also says this about Jesus:

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 

This exceptional assertion is one of the most profound in a book of profound assertions.

Jesus, who walked the dusty roads of Nazareth and who had brothers and sisters among  us, is the one by whom all things that are made were made.

Yes...that Jesus, the man who, at the graveside of His friend, openly wept in our midst and who chatted cheerfully with the Syro-phoenician woman about whether the scope of His mission included her or not and who diverted His  team of diciples across a stormy lake  to find and bring deliverance to a demonized castaway who ran naked among graves stones cutting his own  arms with rocks and who was offered all the kingdoms of the world for the easy price of bowing down to Satan but instead chose to gain  all the kingdoms of the world by paying for them with His own shed blood and agonized death by a brutal crucifixion and who faced judgement in hell where a single flaw in Him would have doomed Him forever but who, in His immaculately clean conscience, knew that Satan had nothing on Him and when the glory commensurate with his righteousness broke forth in brilliant light,  the powers of darkness were made a public spectacle from which they never recovered  and who rose again from the dead and ascended to the right hand of God the Father where He was crowned the King of the creation that was made by Him and through Him and for Him.

Who is this King of Glory?  Psalm 24 verse 10 gives the answer;

Who is he, this King of glory? The Lord Almighty—he is the King of glory.
