Phil, I understood davo to mean kosmos = “Israel”, therefore “from the foundation of the world” means “from the foundation of Israel”. I took it to be part of a Preterist argument against finding reference in the New Testament to anything outside the narrative of Israel or beyond the judgment of AD 70. But I could be wrong. Aside from that, I would hesitate to interpret such a distinctive idiom in the Synoptics in the light of quite different usage in John.
