and the lyght shyneth in the darcknes but the darcknes comprehended it not.
There was a man sent from God whose name was Iohn.
The same cam as a witnes to beare witnes of the lyght that all men through him myght beleve.
He was not that lyght: but to beare witnes of the lyght.
That was a true lyght which lyghteth all men that come into the worlde.
He was in ye worlde and the worlde was made by him: and yet the worlde knewe him not.
He cam amonge his (awne) and his awne receaved him not.
But as meny as receaved him to them he gave power to be the sonnes of God in yt they beleved on his name:
which were borne not of bloude nor of the will of the flesshe nor yet of the will of man: but of God.
And the worde was made flesshe and dwelt amonge vs and we sawe the glory of it as the glory of the only begotten sonne of ye father which worde was full of grace and verite.
Iohn bare witnes of him and cryed sayinge: This was he of whome I spake he that cometh after me was before me because he was yer then I.
