In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him; and without him was
not any thing made that was made.
In him was life; and the life was the light of men.
And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
The same came for a witness, to bear
witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
He was not that Light, but
was sent to bear witness of that Light.
That was the true Light, which lighteth every
man that cometh into the world.
He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and
the world knew him not.
He came unto his own, and his own received him not.
But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe
on his name:
Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the
will of man, but of God.
And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld
his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of
grace and truth.
John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me
is preferred before me: for he was
And of his fulness
have all we received, and grace for grace.
For the law was given by Moses, but grace
and truth came by Jesus Christ.
No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son,
which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.
