In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was
with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God
in the beginning.
3Through him all things were made; without him
nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life,
and that life was the light of men. 5The light shines in
the darkness, but the darkness has not understood a it.
6There came a man who was sent from God; his
name was John. 7He came as a witness to testify concerning
that light, so that through him all men might
believe. 8He himself was not the light; he came only as a
witness to the light.
