In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing that exists came into being.
In Him was Life, and that Life was the Light of men.
The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overpowered it.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
He came as a witness, in order that he might give testimony concerning the Light--so that all might believe through him.
