Synonyms of "Beginning" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between in the beginning and at the beginning ?
A: The most important difference is that "in the beginning" seems to be an expression describing a whole period of time, while "at the beginning" more literally describes a single moment in time, similar to the difference between saying "in the morning" and "at 8 a.m."
Q: What is the difference between It was wrong from the beginning and It was wrong from the first. ?
A: “It’s was wrong from the beginning/start” makes more sense
Q: What is the difference between “ In the beginning” and “ on the beginning “ ?
A: "In the beginning" usually shows time. On the beginning could be used to point to the beginning of a book or phrase, but I've not really seen "on the beginning" be used in daily conversations.
Q: What is the difference between beginning and starting and opening ?
A: "Beginning" means the first in a sequence; beginning of a line, beginning of a story, beginning of an event.

"Starting" is similar and "start" can often be used the same way as "beginning." "Starting" means someone is currently doing something from the beginning; the tv show is starting, I am starting to make dinner.

"Opening" can mean different things. It can be a verb talking about opening a can of pineapple or opening a pickle jar. Or it can mean the beginning of something. For example, the opening of a play is the first scene and the opening of a paper could be either the first sentence or first paragraph.
Q: What is the difference between at the beginning of and in the beginning of ?
A: Not much difference but I think "At the beginning" refers to a very specific point in time, whereas "In the beginning" can refer to a point in time during the beginning period of time.
