New International Version
Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
King James Bible
All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.
Darby Bible Translation

World English Bible

Young's Literal Translation

John 1:3 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
All things were made by him - That is, by this Logos. In Genesis 1:1, God is said to have created all things: in this verse, Christ is said to have created all things: the same unerring Spirit spoke in Moses and in the evangelists: therefore Christ and the Father are One. To say that Christ made all things by a delegated power from God is absurd; because the thing is impossible.

1 Corinthians 8:6
yet for us there is but one God, the Father, from whom all things came and for whom we live; and there is but one Lord, Jesus Christ, through whom all things came and through whom we live.
For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.
but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.
By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
