Book 43 John

43:001:001 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.

43:001:002 The same was in the beginning with God.

43:001:003 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made.

43:001:004 In him was life; and the life was the light of men.

43:001:005 And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.

43:001:006 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.

43:001:007 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

43:001:008 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light.

43:001:009 That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.

43:001:010 He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.

43:001:011 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

43:001:012 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:

43:001:013 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.

43:001:014 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

43:001:015 John bare witness of him, and cried, saying, This was he of whom I spake, He that cometh after me is preferred before me: for he was before me.

43:001:016 And of his fulness have all we received, and grace for grace.

43:001:017 For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.

43:001:018 No man hath seen God at any time, the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

43:001:019 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?

43:001:020 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.

43:001:021 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.

43:001:022 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself?

43:001:023 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias.

43:001:024 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees.

43:001:025 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet?

43:001:026 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not;

43:001:027 He it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy to unloose.

43:001:028 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.

43:001:029 The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.

43:001:030 This is he of whom I said, After me cometh a man which is preferred before me: for he was before me.

43:001:031 And I knew him not: but that he should be made manifest to Israel, therefore am I come baptizing with water.

43:001:032 And John bare record, saying, I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and it abode upon him.

43:001:033 And I knew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost... Continue reading book >>
