In the beginninga was the Wordb, and the Word was withc God, and God was the Word.d
2 This was in the beginning with God.
3 All things were made through it,e and without it not even one thing was made.
What has been made 4 in it {was}f life, and the life was the light of men.g
5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcomeh it.
6 There was a man, sent from {God},i whose name was John.
7 This one came for a testimony, to testify about the light, so that all might believe through him.
8 He was not the light, but came to testify about the light.
9 The true light, which enlightens every person, was coming into the world.j
10 Hek was in the world,l and the world came into being through him,m yet the world did not know him.
11 He came to his own, and his own did not receive him.
12 [But]n To all who received him, he gave them the right to become children of God, to those who believe in his name, 13 who were born not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, [nor of the will of a man,]o but of God.
14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have beheld his glory, glory as of the uniquep one from the Father, full of grace and truth.
15 John bears witness concerning him and has cried out, [saying,]q “This was he of whom [I said],r ‘He who comes after me has become before me, because he was first with me.’”s
16 {For}t from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.
17 For the law was given through Moses; [[But]]u grace and truth came through Jesus [Christ].v
18 No one has ever seen God; uniquew {Son},x [who is]y in the bosom of the Father, that one has made known.
19 And this is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent [to him]z from Jerusalem priests and Levites to ask him, “Who are you?” 20 And he did not deny, [and he confessed,]a “I am not the Christ.”
21 And they asked him [[again]],b “What then? [Are you]c Elijah?” [And]d He says, “I am not.” “[[What then,]]e Are you the prophet?” And {he answered, “No.”}f
22 So they said to him, “Who are you? That we may give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?”
23 He said, “I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness, ‘Make straight the way of the Lord,’ as the prophet Isaiah said.”g
24 And {they were sent}h from the Pharisees; 25 [And they asked him]i [and said to him,]j “Why then do you baptize if you are not the Christ, {nor Elijah, nor the prophet}?”k 26 John answered them, [saying,]l “I [[indeed]]m baptize [[you]]n with water; [[but]]o among you stands one whom you do not know, 27 [[he is]]p {the one}q coming after me [[who was before me,]]r of whom I am not {worthy}s to untie the strap of his sandal.”
28 These things [[indeed]]t took place in {Bethany}u across the Jordan [[River]],v where John was baptizing [[first]].w
29 The next day {he}x sees Jesus coming [toward him] and says, “Behold, the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. 30 This is the one {about}y whom I said, ‘After me comes a man who has become before me, because he was first with respect to me.’z 31 And I did not know him, but in order that he might be revealed to Israel, for this reason I came baptizing in water.”
32 And John testified, [saying,]a “I have seen the Spirit descending like a dove from heaven and remaining upon him. 33 And I did not know [him],b but the one who sent me to baptize in water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon him, this is the one who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.’c 34 And I have seen and have testified that this is the {chosen}d of God.”
35 On the next day, John was [standing]e [again]f with two of his disciples, 36 And looking at Jesus walking, he says, “Behold, the Lamb of God. [[The one taking away the sin of the world.]]”g
37 [And]h {The}i two disciples heard him speaking [and]j followed Jesus.
38 [But]k Jesus, having turned and seen them following [[him]],l says [to them],m “What are you seeking?” And they said to him, “Rabbi (which is translated as ‘Teacher’), where are you staying?” 39 He says to them, “Come and see.” [So]n They went and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day; it was about the tenth hour. 40 Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two who heard from John and followed him.
41 He finds first his own brother Simon and says to him, “We have found the Messiah,” which is translated Christ.o
42 [[Therefore,]]p He brought him to Jesus. Looking at him, Jesus said, “You are Simon, the son of {John};q you will be called Cephas,” which is translated as Peter.r
43 The next day hes wanted to go out to Galilee and found Philip. And {Jesus}t says to him, “Follow me.” 44 [Now]u Philip was from Bethsaida, the city of Andrew and Peter.
45 Philip finds Nathanael and says to him, “We have found the one whom Moses wrote about in the law and the prophets, Jesus {son}v of Joseph from Nazareth.” 46 [And]w Nathanael said to him, “Can anything good come out of Nazareth?” Philip said to him, “Come and see.”
47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and says about {him},x “Behold, truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit.” 48 Nathanael says to him, “From where do you know me?” Jesus answered and said to him, “Before Philip called you, being under the fig tree, I saw you.”
49 Nathanael answered him [[and said to him]],y “Rabbi, you are [[truly]]z the son of God,a you are the king of Israel.”
50 Jesus answered and said to him, “Because I said to you [that]b I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” 51 And he says to him, “Truly, truly I say to you [[hereafter]],c you will see the heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.”
