John 1:1–18

PROLOGUE

In the beginninga was the Word,b and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.c He was with God in the beginning.d All things were createde through him,f and apart from him not one thing was created that has been created. In him was life,A,g and that life was the lighth of men. That light shinesi in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome* it.j

There was a man sent from God whose name was John.k He came as a witness to testify about the light, so that all might believe through him.C He was not the light, but he came to testifyl about the light.

The true lightm that gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.D,n

10 He was in the world, and the world was createdo through him, and yet the world did not recognize him. 11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. 12 But to all who did receivep him,q he gave them the rightr to beE childrens of God,t to those who believeu in his name,v 13 who were born,w not of natural descent,F or of the willx of the flesh,y or of the will of man,G but of God.z

The one and onlyak Son, who is himself God and is at the Father’sal sideK—he has revealed him.am
