11In the beginning was 2the Word, and the Word was 3with God, and 4the Word was God.
2aHe was in the beginning with God.
35Allthingscame into beingthrough Him, and apart from Him nothingcame into being that has come into being.
46In Him was life, and the life was 7the Light of men.
58The Lightshines in the darkness, and the darkness did not bcomprehend it.
There ccame a mansent from God, whosename was 9John.
7dHe camee10as a witness, to testifyabout the Light, 11so that all might believethrough him.
8f12He was not the Light, but he came to testifyabout the Light.
There was 13the trueLightgwhich, coming into the world, enlightenseveryman.
He was in the world, and 14the world was madethrough Him, and the world did not know Him.
He came to His hown, and those who were His own did not receive Him.
But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become15children of God, even 16to those who believe in His name,
1317who were iborn, not of jbloodnor of the will of the fleshnor of the will of man, but of God.
And 18the Word19becameflesh, and k20dweltamong us, and 21we saw His glory, glory as of lthe onlybegotten from the Father, full of 22grace and 23truth.
15John24testifiedabout Him and cried out, saying, "This was He of whom I said, '25He who comesafter me mhas a higherrank than I, 26for He existedbefore me.' "
For of His 27fullnessnwe have allreceived, and ograce upon grace.
For 28the Law was giventhroughMoses; 29grace and 30truthpwere realizedthroughJesusChrist.
1831Noone has seenGod at anytime; 32the onlybegottenGod who is 33in the bosom of the Father, 34He has explained Him.
19This is 35the testimony of John, when36the Jewssent to him priests and Levites37from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?"
And he confessed and did not deny, but confessed, "38I am not qthe Christ."
They asked him, "Whatthen? Are you 39Elijah?" And he said, "I am not." "Are you 40the Prophet?" And he answered, "No."
22Then they said to him, "Who are you, so that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you sayaboutyourself?"
He said, "I am 41A VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, 'MAKESTRAIGHT THE WAY OF THE LORD,' as Isaiah the prophetsaid."
24Now they had beensent from the Pharisees.
They asked him, and said to him, "Whythen are you baptizing, if you are not the rChrist, norElijah, nor42the Prophet?"
26Johnanswered them saying, "43I baptizesin water, but among you stands One whom you do not know.
"It is 44He who comesafter me, the 45thong of whosesandal I am not worthy to untie."
28Thesethingstookplace in Bethany46beyond the Jordan, whereJohn was baptizing.
The nextday he sawJesuscoming to him and said, "Behold, 47the Lamb of God who 48takesaway the sin of the world!
30"This is He on behalf of whom I said, '49After me comes a Manwhothas a higherrank than I, 50for He existedbefore me.'
"I did not recognizeuHim, but so that He might be manifested to Israel, I camebaptizingvin water."
32John51testifiedsaying, "52I have seen the Spiritdescending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him.
"I did not recognizewHim, but He who sent me to baptizexin watersaid to me, 'He upon whom you see the Spiritdescending and remaining upon Him, 53this is the One who baptizesyin the HolySpirit.'
"I myself have seen, and have testified that this is 54the Son of God."
35Again55the nextdayJohn was standingzwith two of his disciples,
and he looked at Jesus as He walked, and said, "Behold, 56the Lamb of God!"
The twodisciplesheard him speak, and they followedJesus.
And Jesusturned and saw them following, and said to them, "What do you seek?" They said to Him, "57Rabbi (whichtranslatedmeansTeacher ), where are You staying?"
He said to them, "Come, and you will see."So they came and sawwhere He was staying; and they stayed with Him that day, for it was about the aatenthhour.
4058One of the two who heardJohn speak and followed Him, was Andrew, SimonPeter'sbrother.
He foundfirst his ownbrotherSimon and said to him, "We have found the 59Messiah " (whichtranslatedmeansbbChrist ).
He brought him to Jesus. Jesuslooked at him and said, "You are Simon the son of cc60John; you shall be called61Cephas " (which is translateddd62Peter ).
4363The nextday He purposed to go into 64Galilee, and He found65Philip. And Jesussaid to him, "66Follow Me."44Now67Philip was from 68Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter.
4569Philipfound70Nathanael and said to him, "We have found Him of whom71Moses in the Law and also 72the Prophetswrote-Jesus of 73Nazareth, 74the son of Joseph."
46Nathanaelsaid to him, "75Cananygoodthingcome out of Nazareth?" 76Philipsaid to him, "Come and see."
47JesussawNathanaelcoming to Him, and said of him, "Behold, an 77Israeliteindeed, in whomthere is nodeceit!"48Nathanaelsaid to Him, "How do You know me?" Jesusanswered and said to him, "Before78Philipcalled you, when you were under the figtree, I saw you."49Nathanaelanswered Him, "79Rabbi, You are 80the Son of God; You are the 81King of Israel."
50Jesusanswered and said to him, "Because I said to you that I saw you under the figtree, do you believe? You will seegreaterthings than these."51
And He said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you will see82the heavensopened and 83the angels of Godascending and descending on 84the Son of Man."
