1 John 1:1-4
1That which was 2from the beginning, 3which we have heard, 4which we have seen with our eyes, 5which we looked upon and 6have touched with our hands, concerning the word of life--
7the life 8was made manifest, and we have seen it, and 9testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life, 10which was with the Father and 11was made manifest to us--
12that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed 13our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ.
And we are writing these things so 14that our joy may be complete.
