John 1:1-28

GNT 1 In the beginning the Word already existed; the Word was with God, and the Word was God. NIV 1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. GNT 2 From the very beginning the Word was with God. NIV 2 He was with God in the beginning. GNT 3 Through him God made all things; not one thing in all creation was made without him. NIV 3 Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. GNT 4 The Word was the source of life, and this life brought light to people. NIV 4 In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. GNT 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out. NIV 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. GNT 6 God sent his messenger, a man named John, NIV 6 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. GNT 7 who came to tell people about the light, so that all should hear the message and believe. NIV 7 He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. GNT 8 He himself was not the light; he came to tell about the light. NIV 8 He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. GNT 9 This was the real light - the light that comes into the world and shines on all people. NIV 9 The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. GNT 10 The Word was in the world, and though God made the world through him, yet the world did not recognize him. NIV 10 He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. GNT 11 He came to his own country, but his own people did not receive him. NIV 11 He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. GNT 12 Some, however, did receive him and believed in him; so he gave them the right to become God's children. NIV 12 Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— GNT 13 They did not become God's children by natural means, that is, by being born as the children of a human father; God himself was their Father. NIV 13 children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God. GNT 14 The Word became a human being and, full of grace and truth, lived among us. We saw his glory, the glory which he received as the Father's only Son. NIV 14 The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. GNT 15 John spoke about him. He cried out, "This is the one I was talking about when I said, "He comes after me, but he is greater than I am, because he existed before I was born.' " NIV 15 (John testified concerning him. He cried out, saying, “This is the one I spoke about when I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me.’ ”) GNT 16 Out of the fullness of his grace he has blessed us all, giving us one blessing after another. NIV 16 Out of his fullness we have all received grace in place of grace already given. GNT 17 God gave the Law through Moses, but grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. NIV 17 For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ. GNT 18 No one has ever seen God. The only Son, who is the same as God and is at the Father's side, he has made him known. NIV 18 No one has ever seen God, but the one and only Son, who is himself God and is in closest relationship with the Father, has made him known. GNT 19 The Jewish authorities in Jerusalem sent some priests and Levites to John to ask him, "Who are you?" NIV 19 Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders in Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was. GNT 20 John did not refuse to answer, but spoke out openly and clearly, saying: "I am not the Messiah." NIV 20 He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, “I am not the Messiah.” GNT 21 "Who are you, then?" they asked. "Are you Elijah?" "No, I am not," John answered. "Are you the Prophet?" they asked. "No," he replied. NIV 21 They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” He answered, “No.” GNT 22 "Then tell us who you are," they said. "We have to take an answer back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?" NIV 22 Finally they said, “Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?” GNT 23 John answered by quoting the prophet Isaiah: "I am "the voice of someone shouting in the desert: Make a straight path for the Lord to travel!' " NIV 23 John replied in the words of Isaiah the prophet, “I am the voice of one calling in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way for the Lord.’ ” GNT 24 The messengers, who had been sent by the Pharisees, NIV 24 Now the Pharisees who had been sent GNT 25 then asked John, "If you are not the Messiah nor Elijah nor the Prophet, why do you baptize?" NIV 25 questioned him, “Why then do you baptize if you are not the Messiah, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?” GNT 26 John answered, "I baptize with water, but among you stands the one you do not know. NIV 26 “I baptize with water,” John replied, “but among you stands one you do not know. GNT 27 He is coming after me, but I am not good enough even to untie his sandals." NIV 27 He is the one who comes after me, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.” GNT 28 All this happened in Bethany on the east side of the Jordan River, where John was baptizing. NIV 28 This all happened at Bethany on the other side of the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
