1 In a beginning was the Word, and the Word was with the God, and a god was the Word.
2 This was in a beginning with the God.
3 All through it was done; and without it was done not even one, that has been done.
4 In it life was, and the life was the light of the men;
5 and the light in the darkness shines, and the darkness it not apprehended.
6 Was a man having been sent from God, a name to him John;
7 this came for a witness, that he might testify about the light, that all might believe through him.
8 Not was he the light, but that he might testify about the light.
9 Was the light the true, which enlightens every man coming into the world.
10 In the world he was, and the world through him was, and the world him not knew.
11 Into the own he came, and the own him not received.
12 As many as but received him, he gave to them authority children of God to become, to those believing into the name of him;
13 who not from bloods, nor from a will of flesh, nor from a will of a man, but from God were begotten.
14 And the Word flesh became, and tabernacled among us, (and we beheld the glory of him, a glory as of an onlybegotten from a father,) full of favor and truth.
15 John testifies concerning him, and cried saying: This was, of whom I said; He after me coming, before me has become; for first of me he was.
16 Because out of the fulness of him we all received, and favor upon favor.
17 For the law through Moses was given; the favor and the truth through Jesus Anointed came.
18 God no one has seen ever; the onlybegotten son, that being in the bosom of the Father, he has made known.
19 And this is the testimony of the John, when sent the Jews from Jerusalem priests and levites, that they might ask him: Thou who art?
20 And he confessed and not denied; and confessed: That not am I the Anointed.
21 And they asked him: What thou? Elias art thou? And he says: Not I am. The prophet art thou? And he answered: No.
22 They said then to him: Who art thou? that an answer we may give to those having sent us; what sayest thou about thyself?
23 He said: I: A voice crying in the desert; Make you straight the way of a lord, as said Esaias the prophet.
24 And those having been sent were of the Pharisees;
25 and they asked him, and said to him: Why then dippest thou, if thou not art the Anointed, nor Elias, nor a prophet?
26 Answered then the John, saying: I dip in water; midst but of you stands, whom you not know,
27 he after me coming, of whom I not am worthy, that I may loose of him the strap of the sandal.
28 These in Bethany were done beyond the Jordan, where was John dipping.
29 In the morrow he beholds the Jesus coming to him, and he says: Behold the lamb of the God, he taking away the sin of the world.
30 This is he, about whom I said: After me comes a man, who before me has become; because first of me he was.
31 And I not knew him; but that he might be manifested to the Israel, because of this am come I in the water dipping.
32 And bore testimony John, saying: That I saw the spirit coming down like a dove out of heaven, and it abode on him.
33 And I not knew him; but he having sent me to dip in water, he to me said: On whom thou mayest see the spirit coming down, and abiding on him, this is he dipping in spirit holy.
34 And I have seen, and have testified, that this is the son of the God.
35 The morrow again was standing the John, and of the disciples of him two.
36 And having looked on the Jesus walking, he says: Behold the lamb of the God.
37 And heard him the two disciples speaking, and they followed the Jesus.
38 Having turned and the Jesus, and seeing them following, he says to them: What seek you? They and said to him: Rabbi, (which means being interpreted, O teacher,) were dwellest thou?
39 He says to them: Come you and see you. They came and saw, where he dwells; and with him abode the day that. Hour it was about tenth.
40 Was Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter, one of the two of those having heard from John, and having followed him.
41 Finds he first the brother that own Simon, and he says to him: We have found the Messiah (which is being interpreted, Anointed.)
42 And he brought him to the Jesus. Having looked to him the Jesus said: Thou art Simon, the son of Jona; thou shalt be called Cephas; which means Peter.
43 The morrow he desired to go forth into the Galilee; and he finds Philip, and says to him: Follow me.
44 Was and the Philip from Bethsaida of the city of Andrew and Peter.
45 Finds Philip the Nathanael, and says to him: Whom wrote Moses in the law, and the prophets, we have found, Jesus the son of the Joseph, that from Nazareth.
46 And said to him Nathanael: Out of Nazareth is able any good to be? Says to him Philip: Come and see.
47 Saw the Jesus the Nathanael coming to him, and he says concerning him: Behold indeed an Israelite, in whom guile not is.
48 Says to him Nathanael: Whence me knowest thou? Answered Jesus and said to him: Before the thee Philip to have called, being under the figtree, I saw thee.
49 Answered Nathanael and says to him: Rabbi, thou art the son of the God, thou art the king of the Israel.
50 Answered Jesus and said to him: Because I said to thee; I saw thee underneath the figtree, believest thou? greater of these thou shalt see.
51 And he says to him: Indeed indeed I say to you, from now you shall see the heaven having been opened, and the messengers of the God ascending and descending on the son of the man.
