all things have been created through him and for him
That's correct Sister, THROUGH HIM not by him.
GOD created everything, even Jesus our Christ and Brother.
Jesus was made so much better than the angels.
1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;
3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;
4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?
6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
God made Jesus to be both our Lord and Christ.
36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
I don't desire to argue with you Sister Kate. And I wouldn't if I had no certain answers to your mild confusion. And I mean that very kindly.
John 1 is talking about Jesus being revealed as the Son of God, because in the OT Jesus was seen and heard to mankind as being GOD. Jesus has always been the spokesman to mankind for our FATHER. But that was not revealed to us until 2000 years ago as John elaborates on in John 1.
Look what else John knows....
37 And the Father himself, which hath sent me, hath borne witness of me. Ye have neither heard his voice at any time, nor seen his shape.
1 John 4:12
12 No man hath seen God at any time. If we love one another, God dwelleth in us, and his love is perfected in us.
18 No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
John 1 is a very deep thoughts from John's understanding of how Jesus was revealed to mankind as the Son of GOD, instead of being GOD as previously believed.

and perhaps I can learn from you too.
Do you know Joseph and Mary's last name? Zebedee. Its in the Bible.
So Jesus step father was Joseph Zebedee, who had multiple wives and children.
