In the beginning was the Word,
and the Word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came into being through Him,
and apart from Him nothing came into being
that has come into being.
In Him was life,
and the life was the Light of men.
The Light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness did not comprehend it.
There was the true Light
which, coming into the world,
enlightens every man.
He was in the world,
and the world was made through Him,
and the world did not know Him.
He came to His own,
and those who were His own
did not receive Him.
BORN OF GOD
But as many as received Him,
to them He gave the right
to become children of God,
even to those who believe in His name,
who were born,
not of blood
nor of the will of the flesh
nor of the will of man,
but of God.
GLORY, GRACE, AND TRUTH
And the Word became flesh,
and dwelt among us,
and we saw His glory,
glory as of the only begotten from the Father,
For of His fullness we have all received,
and grace upon grace.
For the Law was given through Moses;
grace and truth were realized through Jesus Christ.
No one has seen God at any time;
the only begotten God
who is in the bosom of the Father,
He has explained Him.
John 1:1-5, 9-14, 16-18 NASB
