And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us (and we saw his glory, the glory as it were of the only begotten of the Father), full of grace and truth.
John beareth witness of him and crieth out, saying: This was he of whom I spoke: He that shall come after me is preferred before me: because he was before me.
And of his fulness we all have received: and grace for grace.
For the law was given by Moses: grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.
No man hath seen God at any time: the only begotten Son who is in the Bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent from Jerusalem priests and Levites to him, to ask him: Who art thou?
And he confessed and did not deny: and he confessed: I am not the Christ.
And they asked him: What then? Art thou Elias? And he said: I am not. Art thou the prophet? And he answered: No.
They said therefore unto him: Who art thou, that we may give an answer to them that sent us? What sayest thou of thyself?
He said: I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Isaias.
And they that were sent were of the Pharisees.
