1In the beginning was 2the Word, and 3the Word was with God, and 4the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
5All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made.
6In him was life, and 7the life was the light of men.
8The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
There was a man 9sent from God, whose name was 10John.
He came as a 11witness, to bear witness about the light, 12that all might believe through him.
