In the beginning the Word already existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was already with God in the beginning.
Everything came into existence through him. Not one thing that exists was made without him.
He was the source of life, and that life was the light for humanity.
The light shines in the dark, and the dark has never extinguished it.
God sent a man named John to be his messenger.
John came to declare the truth about the light so that everyone would become believers through his message.
