1 John 2:13 NKJV

I write to you, fathers, Because you have known Him who is from the beginning.

Genesis 1:1 NKJV

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

John 1 NKJV

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men.

From Matthew Henry’s Complete Bible Commentary:

v. 13, 14. Old men have knowledge and experience, and expect deference. The apostle is ready to own the knowledge of old Christians, and to congratulate them thereupon. They know the Lord Christ, particularly him that was from the beginning; as ch. 1:1. As Christ is Alpha and Omega, so he must be the beginning and end of our Christian knowledge.
