In the beginning, the Word was already there. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.
All things were made through him. Nothing that has been made was made without him.
Life was in him, and that life was the light for all people.
The light shines in the darkness. But the darkness has not understood it.
A man came who was sent from God. His name was John.
He came to give witness about that light. He gave witness so that all people could believe.
