In the beginning the Word already existed; the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
From the very beginning the Word was with God.
Through him God made all things; not one thing in all creation was made without him.
The Word was the source of life, a and this life brought light to people.
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out.
God sent his messenger, a man named John, 17
who came to tell people about the light, so that all should hear the message and believe.
