He was the source of life, and that life was the light for humanity.
John came to declare the truth about the light so that everyone would become believers through his message.
The real light, which shines on everyone, was coming into the world.
The Word became human and lived among us. We saw his glory. It was the glory that the Father shares with his only Son, a glory full of kindness and truth.
This was John's answer when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?"
Nathanael said to Jesus, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the king of Israel!"
