Heraclitus:   Ηράκλειτος (Herakleitos; Heraclitus) of Ephesus (c.535 BC - 475 BC) was a Greek philosopher, known for his doctrine of change being central to the universe, and for establishing the term Logos (λόγος) in Western philosophy as meaning both the source and fundamental order of the Cosmos.”  From Wikiquote

 

What is the meaning of Logos in John 1:1-3  

“1. In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2. The same was in the beginning with God. 3. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.”

The Word was not created, but was already in existence in the beginning. The Word was with God, that is the Word was with God in the sense of being a part of God. So that people might think that the Word was another God or a God created by God John wrote. The Word was God. John was trying to send a message to the Greek People who believe that Logos was the one that made the universe. You think that Logos made all things, and we Jews believe that God (Theos) made all things, so your Word is our God.
