The comparison shows that Goethe was indeed opposed to the Logos, but that he was mistaken in his understanding of the Logos on two accounts: (i.)the Christian Logos is not identical to the secular Logos of Heraclitus, Aristotle, the Stoics, and others, and (ii.)the word and the deed of God are identical – what God says is what God does. His criticism of the opening to John’s Gospel, therefore, is based upon his misunderstanding of the Biblical doctrine of the Divine Logos (i.e. Jesus Christ is the Wisdom and Power of God).
Soli Deo Gloria!
