Jesus in the Beginning

In verses 1-5, John establishes Jesus‘ pedigree as preexistent.

What about being the first, or the oldest, or the tallest carries such psychological weight in human beings?

It doesn’t seem that age should be as relevant as character and authority. But infinite age places God in a position where many atheistic cosmologists wish to place the universe.

According to John, because Jesus created order out of chaos, he is our supreme ruler, our light.

I agree with the conclusion, but the psychology intrigues and confuses me.
