14 The Wordaa became fleshab and dweltH among us. We observed his glory,ac the glory as the one and onlyad SonI from the Father, full of grace and truth. 15 (John testified concerning him and exclaimed, “This was the one of whom I said, ‘The one coming after meae ranks ahead of me,af because he existed before me.’ ”)ag 16 Indeed, we have all received graceah uponJ grace from his fullness, 17 for the law was given through Moses;ai grace and truthaj came through Jesus Christ. 18 No one has ever seen God. The one and onlyak Son, who is himself God and is at the Father’sal sideK—he has revealed him.am


19 This was John’s testimony when the Jews from Jerusaleman sent priestsao and Levitesap to ask him, “Who are you?”

20 He didn’t deny it but confessed: “I am not the Messiah.”aq

21 “What then?” they asked him. “Are you Elijah?”ar

“I am not,” he said.

“Are you the Prophet?”as

“No,” he answered.

22 “Who are you, then?” they asked. “We need to give an answer to those who sent us. What can you tell us about yourself?”

23 He said, “I am a voice of one crying out in the wilderness: Make straight the way of the LordL,at—just as Isaiahau the prophet said.”
