Joh 1

The Prologue to the Gospel

1In the beginning1 was the Word, and the Word was with God,2 and the Word was fully God.3
2The Word4 was with God in the beginning.
3All things were created5 by him, and apart from him not one thing was created6 that has been created.7
4In him was life,8 and the life was the light of mankind.9
5And the light shines on10 in the darkness,11 but12 the darkness has not mastered it.13

6A man came, sent from God, whose name was John.14
7He came as a witness15 to testify16 about the light, so that everyone17 might believe through him.
8He himself was not the light, but he came to testify18 about the light.
9The true light, who gives light to everyone,19 was coming into the world.20
10He was in the world, and the world was created21 by him, but22 the world did not recognize23 him.
11He came to what was his own,24 but25 his own people26 did not receive him.27
12But to all who have received him - those who believe in his name28 - he has given the right to become God's children
13- children not born29 by human parents30 or by human desire31 or a husband's32 decision,33 but by God.

14Now34 the Word became flesh35 and took up residence36 among us. We37 saw his glory - the glory of the one and only,38 full of grace and truth, who came from the Father.
15John39 testified40 about him and shouted out,41 "This one was the one about whom I said, 'He who comes after me is greater than I am,42 because he existed before me.'"
16For we have all received from his fullness one gracious gift after another.43
17For the law was given through Moses, but44 grace and truth came about through Jesus Christ.
18No one has ever seen God. The only one,45 himself God, who is in closest fellowship with46 the Father, has made God47 known.48

The Testimony of John the Baptist

19Now49 this was50 John's51 testimony52 when the Jewish leaders53 sent54 priests and Levites from Jerusalem55 to ask him, "Who are you?"56
20He confessed - he did not deny but confessed - "I am not the Christ!"57
21So they asked him, "Then who are you?58 Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not!"59 "Are you the Prophet?"60 He answered, "No!"
22Then they said to him, "Who are you? Tell us61 so that we can give an answer to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?"

23John62 said, "I am the voice of one shouting in the wilderness, 'Make straight63 the way for the Lord,'64 as Isaiah the prophet said."
24(Now they had been sent from the Pharisees.65 )66
25So they asked John,67 "Why then are you baptizing if you are not the Christ,68 nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?"

26John answered them,69 "I baptize with water. Among you stands one whom you do not recognize,70
27who is coming after me. I am not worthy71 to untie the strap72 of his sandal!"
28These things happened in Bethany73 across the Jordan River74 where John was baptizing.

29On the next day John75 saw Jesus coming toward him and said, "Look, the Lamb of God76 who takes away the sin of the world!
30This is the one about whom I said, 'After me comes a man who is greater than I am,77 because he existed before me.'
31I did not recognize78 him, but I came baptizing with water so that he could be revealed to Israel."79

32Then80 John testified,81 "I saw the Spirit descending like a dove82 from heaven,83 and it remained on him.84
33And I did not recognize him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water said to me, 'The one on whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining - this is the one who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.'
34I have both seen and testified that this man is the Chosen One of God."85

35Again the next day John86 was standing there87 with two of his disciples.
36Gazing at Jesus as he walked by, he said, "Look, the Lamb of God!"88
37When John's89 two disciples heard him say this,90 they followed Jesus.91
38Jesus turned around and saw them following and said to them, "What do you want?"92 So they said to him, "Rabbi" (which is translated Teacher),93 "where are you staying?"
39Jesus94 answered,95 "Come and you will see." So they came and saw where he was staying, and they stayed with him that day. Now it was about four o'clock in the afternoon.96

Andrew's Declaration

40Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, was one of the two disciples who heard what John said97 and followed Jesus.98
41He first99 found his own brother Simon and told him, "We have found the Messiah!"100 (which is translated Christ).101
42Andrew brought Simon102 to Jesus. Jesus looked at him and said, "You are Simon, the son of John.103 You will be called Cephas" (which is translated Peter).104

The Calling of More Disciples

43On the next day Jesus105 wanted to set out for Galilee.106 He107 found Philip and said108 to him, "Follow me."
44(Now Philip was from Bethsaida,109 the town of110 Andrew and Peter.)
45Philip found Nathanael111 and told him, "We have found the one Moses wrote about in the law, and the prophets also112 wrote about - Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph."
46Nathanael113 replied,114 "Can anything good come out of Nazareth?"115 Philip replied,116 "Come and see."

47Jesus saw Nathanael coming toward him and exclaimed,117 "Look, a true Israelite in whom there is no deceit!"118
48Nathanael asked him, "How do you know me?" Jesus replied,119 "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree,120 I saw you."
49Nathanael answered him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God; you are the king121 of Israel!"122
50Jesus said to him,123 "Because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? You will see greater things than these."124
51He continued,125 "I tell all of you the solemn truth126 - you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man."127
