Saved by the Logos
1 aIn the beginning was bthe Word, and the Word was cwith God, and dthe Word was God.
2 1He was in the beginning with God.
3 aAll things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being.
4 aIn Him was life, and the life was bthe Light of men.
5 aThe Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not 1comprehend it.
The Witness John
6 There 1came a man sent from God, whose name was aJohn.
7 1He came 2aas a witness, to testify about the Light, bso that all might believe through him.
8 1aHe was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light.
9 There was athe true Light 1which, coming into the world, enlightens every man.
10 He was in the world, and athe world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him.
11 He came to His 1own, and those who were His own did not receive Him.
12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become achildren of God, even bto those who believe in His name,
13 awho were 1born, not of 2blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.
The Word Made Flesh
14 And athe Word bbecame flesh, and 1cdwelt among us, and dwe saw His glory, glory as of 2the only begotten from the Father, full of egrace and ftruth.
15 John *testified about Him and cried out, saying, “This was He of whom I said, ‘bHe who comes after me 1has a higher rank than I, for He existed before me.’ ”
16 For of His fullness 1we have all received, and 2grace upon grace.
17 For the Law was given through Moses; grace and truth 1were realized through Jesus Christ.
18 No one has seen God at any time; the only begotten God who is in the bosom of the Father, he has explained Him.
