NLT 1 In the beginning the Word already existed. He was with God, and he was God. NIV 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. NLT 2 He was in the beginning with God. NIV 2 He was with God in the beginning. NLT 3 He created everything there is. Nothing exists that he didn't make. NIV 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. NLT 4 Life itself was in him, and this life gives light to everyone. NIV 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of men. NLT 5 The light shines through the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. NIV 5 The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. NLT 6 God sent John the Baptist NIV 6 There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. NLT 7 to tell everyone about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony. NIV 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. NLT 8 John himself was not the light; he was only a witness to the light. NIV 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. NLT 9 The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was going to come into the world. NIV 9 The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world. NLT 10 But although the world was made through him, the world didn't recognize him when he came.

NIV 12 Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God-- NLT 13 They are reborn! This is not a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan -- this rebirth comes from God. NIV 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband's will, but born of God. NLT 14 So the Word became human and lived here on earth among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the only Son of the Father. NIV 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. NLT 15 John pointed him out to the people. He shouted to the crowds, "This is the one I was talking about when I said, 'Someone is coming who is far greater than I am, for he existed long before I did.'" NIV 15 John testifies concerning him. He cries out, saying, "This was he of whom I said, 'He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.' " NLT 16 We have all benefited from the rich blessings he brought to us -- one gracious blessing after another. NIV 16 From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.
