Reformation Study Bible – 1 John 2:7
1 John 2:7

2:7 from the beginning. While John sometimes uses this word to refer to the beginning of all things (vv. 13, 14; 1:1), here he refers to the beginning of the Christian movement in the life and teaching of Jesus (v. 24; 3:11). As the next verse shows, the coming of Jesus was the critical turning point ushering in a new epoch, the dawning of a new day.
