Joh 1:1 In the beginning, the Word existed. The Word was with God, and the Word was God.
Joh 1:3 Through him all things were made, and apart from him nothing was made that has been made.
Joh 1:4 In him was life, and that life brought light to humanity.
Joh 1:5 And the light shines on in the darkness, and the darkness has never put it out.
Joh 1:6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
Joh 1:7 He came as a witness to testify about the light, so that all might believe through him.
Joh 1:8 He was not the light, but he came to testify about the light.
Joh 1:9 This was the true light that enlightens every person by his coming into the world.
Joh 1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him. Yet the world did not recognize him.
Joh 1:11 He came to his own creation, yet his own people did not receive him.
Joh 1:12 However, to all who received him, to those believing in his name, he gave authority to become God's children,
Joh 1:13 who were born, not merely in a physical sense, or from a fleshly impulse, or from man's desire, but of God.
Joh 1:14 The Word became flesh and tabernacled among us. We gazed on his glory, the kind of glory that belongs to the Father's unique Son, full of grace and truth.
Joh 1:15 John told the truth about him when he cried out, "This is the person about whom I said, ' The one who comes after me ranks ahead of me, because he existed before me.'"
Joh 1:16 From his fullness we have all received one gracious gift after another.
Joh 1:17 For while the law was given through Moses, grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
