God with us

John 1: 1–14

The Word of Life

In the beginning was the one

who is called the Word.

The Word was with God

and was truly God.

From the very beginning

the Word was with God.

And with this Word,

God created all things.

Nothing was made

without the Word.

Everything that was created

received its life from him,

and his life gave light

to everyone.

The light keeps shining

in the dar k,

and darkness has never

put it out.

God sent a man named John,

who came to tell

about the light

and to lead all people

to have faith.

John wasn’t that light.

He came only to tell

about the light.


The true light that shines

on everyone

was coming into the world.

The Word was in the world,

but no one knew him,

though God had made the world

with his Word.

He came into his own world,

but his own nation

did not welcome him.

Yet some people accepted him

and put their faith in him.

So he gave them the right

to be the children of God.

They were not God’s children

by nature

or because

of any human desires.

God himself was the one

who made them his children.

The Word became

a human being

and lived here with us.

We saw his true glory,

the glory of the only Son

of the Father.

From him all the kindness

and all the truth of God

have come down to us.
