Something to think about. The Genesis creation story, the first verses of the Gospel of John and the Passion of Jesus Christ are telling the same story in a different way. The Passion of Jesus Christ is a creation story in the same/very similar way that the Genesis account is a creation story. Rene Girard, in Things Hiddens Since the Foundation of the World says "John's prologue undoubtedly refers to the passion." I believe the Day Atonement rituals and the story of the Suffering Servant are creation narratives, in the same/similar way as the Genesis account.
