This question is about historical spelling, but in my opinion the knowledge of the historical spelling relates with the etymology knowledge.
The questions are:
1. Is the fourth letter in image 1 (y) and the large yellow capital letter in image 2 the same letter?
2. Are the fifth and the sixth letters of the circled word in image 2 the same?
What are the precise letters in the word "beginning" in Wycliffe's Bible from originalbibles.com (Wycliffe's Bible, from 1382 to 1395, Middle English, page 151, Jn.1:1)?
