1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

 

 

 


2 He was in the beginning with God;




3 all things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made.





4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.



5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.



6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 He came for testimony, to bear witness to the light, that all might believe through him. 8 He was not the light, but came to bear witness to the light.

 


9 The true light that enlightens every man was coming into the world.


10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world knew him not.

 

11 He came to his own home, and his own people received him not. 12 But to all who received him, who believed in his name, he gave power to become children of God; 13 who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, full of grace and truth; we have beheld his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father.




16 And from his fullness have we all received, grace upon grace.

23 He said, "I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, 'Make straight the way of the Lord,' as the prophet Isaiah said."

 

29 The next day he saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world! 30 This is he of whom I said, 'After me comes a man who ranks before me, for he was before me.'

 

38 . . . And they said to him,  . . .  "where are you staying?"
39 He said to them, "Come and see." They came and saw where he was staying; and they stayed with him that day, for it was about the tenth hour.
