1:2 The same was in the beginning with God.
1:3 All things were made through him. Without him was not anything made that has been made.
1:6 There came a man, sent from God, whose name was John.
1:7 The same came as a witness, that he might testify about the light, that all might believe through him.
1:9 The true light that enlightens everyone was coming into the world.
1:10 He was in the world, and the world was made through him, and the world didn`t recognize him.
1:11 He came to his own, and those who were his own didn`t receive him.
1:12 But as many as received him, to them he gave the right to become God`s children, to those who believe in his name:
1:13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.
1:14 The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth.
1:15 John testified about him. He cried out, saying, "This was he of whom I said, `He who comes after me has surpassed me, for he was before me.`"
1:16 From his fullness we all received grace upon grace.
1:19 This is John`s testimony, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, "Who are you?"
1:20 He confessed, and didn`t deny, but he confessed, "I am not the Christ."
1:21 They asked him, "What then? Are you Elijah?" He said, "I am not." "Are you the prophet?" He answered, "No."
1:22 They said therefore to him, "Who are you? Give us an answer to take back to those who sent us. What do you say about yourself?"
1:23 He said, "I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, `Make straight the way of the Lord,` as Isaiah the prophet said."
1:24 The ones who had been sent were from the Pharisees.
1:25 They asked him, "Why then do you baptize, if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?"
1:27 he who comes after me, whose sandal strap I`m not worthy to untie."
1:30 This is he of whom I said, `After me comes a man who is preferred before me, for he was before me.`
1:32 John testified, saying, "I have seen the Spirit descending like a dove out of heaven, and it remained on him.
1:33 I didn`t recognize him, but he who sent me to baptize in water, he said to me, `On whoever you will see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.`
1:34 I have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God."
1:36 and he looked at Jesus as he walked, and said, "Behold, the Lamb of God!"
1:37 The two disciples heard him speak, and they followed Jesus.
1:38 Jesus turned, and saw them following, and said to them, "What are you looking for?" They said to him, "Rabbi" (which is to say, being interpreted, Teacher), "where are you staying?"
1:40 One of the two who heard John, and followed him, was Andrew, Simon Peter`s brother.
1:41 He first found his own brother, Simon, and said to him, "We have found the Messiah!" (which is, being interpreted, Christ).
1:42 He brought him to Jesus. Jesus looked at him, and said, "You are Simon the son of Jonah. You shall be called Cephas" (which is by interpretation, Peter).
1:44 Now Philip was from Bethsaida, of the city of Andrew and Peter.
1:46 Nathanael said to him, "Can any good thing come out of Nazareth?" Philip said to him, "Come and see."
1:47 Jesus saw Nathanael coming to him, and said about him, "Behold, an Israelite indeed, in whom is no deceit!"
1:48 Nathanael says to him, "How do you know me?" Jesus answered him, "Before Philip called you, when you were under the fig tree, I saw you."
1:49 Nathanael answered him, "Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are King of Israel!"
1:50 Jesus answered him, "Because I told you, `I saw you underneath the fig tree,` do you believe? You will see greater things than these."
1:51 He said to him, "Most assuredly, I tell you, hereafter you will see heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.
